Iran gives antisemitic cartoon top prize

    The winning entry in an Iranian cartoon contest shows three religious Jews praying in front of the Western Wall in Jerusalem labelled “New York Wall Street”.

    Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League condemned what he call a “cynical perversion of the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism”.

    He added: “Once again Iran takes the prize for promoting antisemitism.” The cartoon won the “International Wall Street Downfall Cartoon Festival” jointly sponsored by the Iranian media agency, Fars News.

    Five years ago the Iranian government sponsored a Holocaust cartoon contest.
