Dutch prosecutors found that a Holocaust-denying cartoon was punishable

"The Holocaust cartoon "is punishable because it offends Jews on the basis of their race and/or religion."

Background: Muslim European group posts anti-Semitic cartoons


The Dutch prosecution service had received complaints "about two cartoons published on the website of the Arab-European League (AEL) [founded by Dyab Abou Jahjah, a Lebanese born Belgian Muslim leader] lobby group, one of which allegedly shows Jews denying that the Holocaust happened".

"The Holocaust cartoon "is punishable because it offends Jews on the basis of their race and/or religion."

"The AEL has agreed to remove the cartoon from its Dutch website, said the statement. "If it complies, charges will be provisionally dropped.""

"Hitler goes Dutroux", AEL blog

From the Arab-European League: Anne Frank in bed with a paedophile Hitler (in a reference to Marc Dutroux, a Belgian serial killer and criminal, convicted of having kidnapped, tortured and sexually abused six girls during 1995 and 1996, ranging in age from 8 to 19, four of whom he murdered).

From: Exploiting Anne Frank, by Alvin H. Rosenfeld

"Yet contemporary political iconography has matched it with another image of Anne that is equally obscene: A drawing featured in a 2006 Holocaust cartoon contest sponsored by the Iranian newspaper Hamshahri shows a wasted-looking young girl sinking desolately under the bed sheets, while propped up next to her, a bare-chested, swastika-laden Hitler crows, "Write this one in your diary, Anne!" Above the head of the Führer's victim, a wordless bubble registers the grief of the devastated girl.

The fact that this graphic is vile has not kept it from being widely distributed by, among others, the Arab European League, a Belgian-Dutch Islamic political organization headed by the popular leader Dyab Abou Jahjah. In the wake of the Danish cartoon controversy, Jahjah was offering payback, declaring, "Europe too has its sacred cows."

Indeed it does, but Europe's murdered Jews are not among them. Anne Frank, dead before she had turned 16, was no saint but rather one more addition to the mounds of anonymous corpses at Bergen-Belsen. One need not sacralize her memory in order to pay it a decent respect. Until recently, most people have found it proper to do so, but in an age of resurgent anti-Semitism, respect for even the Jewish dead has become a dwindling commodity."

How appropriate that hateful people of all stripes appear to enjoy using cartoons to humiliate the "Other."

These Islamist cartoons are the analog to the Muhammad cartoon that the American Jewish Committee, among other Zionist groups, actually encouraged the publication of by traveling to Denmark.

I think everyone should be allowed to make cartoons about absolutely anything. Let normal social mechanisms be the only judge and limitations.

However, I have not heard about any Arab embassies that have been burned down or any deat threats by crazy jewish fanatics over these silly cartoons.

THIS really makes a difference!

These cartoons aren't even funny! Neither of them!
