    Iran launches anti-Isis cartoon competition 'to expose true nature of Islamic State'

    How do you think ISIS will respond to this?

    Iran launches anti-Isis cartoon competition 'to expose true nature of Islamic State' - Middle East - World - The Independent

    Iran has launched an anti-Isis cartoon competition, inviting submissions from around the world which mock the militant group and the atrocities it has committed. Organisers said selected works would be displayed at four cultural centres across Tehran, and that a winner would be announced on 31 May. According to the state-run IRNA news agency, artists were briefed by Iran’s House of Cartoon to focus on “the crimes committed by the Islamic State (Isis)”. Mohammad Habibi, the executive secretary of the contest, said 280 works had been selected from 800 submissions, including entries from over 40 countries such as Brazil, Australia and Indonesia. Mr Habibi told the Tehran Times that some foreign cartoonists were attending the contest, but that they had been forced to travel under pseudonyms due to security concerns.

    Irony is definitely something this planet is not in short supply of.

    I expect Daesh will froth at the mouth over it.


    But big kudos to Iran.
    This is a smart and efficient tack to take.
    I may be wrong.
