This week, Iran is hosting its second annual Holocaust Cartoon Competition, even as some politicians and world leaders continue to argue that Iran is becoming a stabilizing force because it is re-joining the international community, by implementing the nuclear agreement and integrating into the global financial system.
The exhibition of Holocaust cartoons will open on May 14. Iran's Holocaust Cartoon Competition reflects the Iranian regimes' attempts to expand its efforts to promote anti-Semitism beyond the borders of its nation.
As Iran's revenues are rising, thanks to the lifting of sanctions, the prize for the best Holocaust cartoon was lifted, as well. Iran is now offering $50,000 for the best Holocaust cartoon, more than quadruple last year's prize, which was $12,000. According to Iran's semi-official IRNA news agency, the conference is expected to draw participants from more than 50 countries.
