A Purim Lesson for Persia

This may be one of the 700 entrants to the Iranian newspaper Hamshahri’s competition for Holocaust cartoons to avenge the offence caused to Muslims over the Danish cartoons of Mohammed.

I don’t recall that Jews caused the offence or drew the cartoons.
I don’t recall that Jews rejoiced in the offence either.
If anything, it was the enlightened atheists and permissive perverts who defended the cartoons most vocally as freedom of expression.

But still the Jews are blamed. Nothing changes.

So I say to the editor of Hamshahri, to Ahmadinejad and to all the enemies of our eternal nation: If you happen to be passing one of our synagogues today – the festival of Purim – pay close heed to the words of the wise men to another Persian anti-Semite centuries ago. It’s in the Book of Esher, 6:13 (what a coincidence) and reads thus…

"If Mordechai, before whom you have begun to fall, is of Jewish descent, you will not prevail against him, but you will surely fall before him."

And so, in this century, shall you.
