Muslims decide the answer to an insult is another insult: "An image on the website of the prominent Iranian newspaper Hamshahri Sunday Feb. 12, 2006, which on Monday will open an international competition seeking cartoons about the Holocaust in what it said was a test of whether the West would be as supportive of freedom of expression over the Nazi genocide as it was with the caricatures of Islam's Prophet Muhammed originally published in Denmark and reproduced in some other countries. The advertisement, displayed in English and Arabic, was also to appear on page 31 of the print version of the paper, said Davood Kazemi, executive manager of the contest. The prophet drawings have sparked weeks of sometimes violent protest throughout the islamic world and beyond. (AP Photo, Hamshahri HO) "
