France: Cartoonist Zeon wins Iranian Holocaust-denial contest

French cartoonist Zeon is the winner of Iran's 2nd International Holocaust cartoon contest in the 'cartoon' category.  Other Europeans won special mentions in both the cartoon  and caricature categories.

Via Teheran Times:
Speaking at the ceremony, the secretary of the competition, Masud Shojaei-Tabatabai said, “One of the subjects we asked cartoonists to focus on was why the Western countries arrest any scholar who doubts the Holocaust while they put no limit on freedom of speech in other categories.”

“The other subject was why Palestinians should pay for the Holocaust… we are concerned about the modern Holocaust that is being sought by the Zionist regime, which is known as a child killer government,” he added.
