Tehran's "chamber of horrors" featuring Holocaust cartoons

Journalist Ahmad Taheri went to see the Holocaust cartoon exhibition on show in Tehran. The exhibition was conceived as a response to the Danish Muhammad cartoons but has apparently failed to attract much interest. "The exhibition is marked by hatred of Jews or 'the Zionists'," writes Taheri. "But it seems that on the eve of the UN Security Council meeting those in power aren't entirely comfortable with the chamber of horrors on show at the Museum of Palestinian Art. The newspapers are silent on the subject and even the intellectuals don't seem to know anything about it. In the four hours this visitor from Germany [Ahmad Taheri] spent at the exhibition only six people came: three Western journalists with their three interpreters."
