Jewish and Muslim reactions to "offensive" cartoons

For those of you who don’t read French the link above relates to an exhibition of intentionally provocative, anti-Semitic cartoons. It is being held in Tehran and the curator put it together to test the west’s willingness to embrace freedom of expression. This test is in itself a reaction to the Mohammed cartoons which were run in a number of newspapers earlier this year.

The reaction to the Mohammed cartoons ranged from mild indignation to out and out riots via street protests. The Jewish reaction to the anti-Semitic cartoons is to say, we can do that better.
This is probably a good indication of why Jews have a reputation for having a great sense of humour and unfortunately Muslims do not.

Hat tip to Croydonian for the original story which you can put into babelfish if you need a translation.
