Do we look like Iraqis?
not see why I have to put up with Iraj's cartoons
August 26, 2004
I have been troubled by Iraj
Esfandiary's cartoons for a while now. And it
seems I am not alone in this opinion. I just read a letter published
on this web site titled 'Iraj
should be banned' by a Mr. Bakhtiyar. As a defender of free speech, however
ridiculous that speech happens to be, I do not believe that Iraj
should be banned or silenced.
However, considering how passionate Iraj is about what is going
on in Iraq or Israel, why doesn't he find an Arabic web site and
publish his cartoons there? Why iranian.com? Do we look like Iraqis
or Palestinians to you, Mr.Esfandiary?
Why don't you go to Al-Jazira's web site, or Hamas or some terrorist
organisation who shares your view? I am sure they will be as pleased
as punch to publish your anti-American rhetoric.
As an Iranian, and a passionate viewer of this web site, I do
not see why I have to put up with your cartoons? Do you want us
to feel sorry for the Arabs? Do you want us to pity them? After
they killed or injured over a million Iranians in 8 years?
Three years ago, at the height of the violence in Israel, there
was an Arab summit held in Lebanon. Despite the dire situation
in Israel, the Arab summit FIRST denounced Iran for not giving
Her islands in the Persian Gulf to the Arabs, THEN condemned Israel.
Now Iraj, you want me to feel sorry for these Arabs? Why? After
25 years of suffering, did they ever feel sorry for us? Do you
ever see a cartoon on an Arab website supporting the struggle of
the Iranian people?
As a fellow human, I ask you Iraj to go find a sympathetic Arab
website and publish your not-even-funny cartoons there. [See Iraj's
one is forcing you"]
