A little cartoon jujitsu

As I'm sure all you folks know, the consistently batshit-crazy Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadenijad has sponsored a Holocaust cartoon contest in response to the Danish cartoons. It's a loathesome response to an offensive incident, but it seems that Ahmadenijad's challenge of free speech is backfiring on him somewhat. An Israeli cartoonist is sponsoring an anti-Semitic cartoon contest, with the stipulation that all entrants must themselves be Jewish.
