Iran Holds Anti-Islamic State Cartoon Contest

One submission to the contest

Iran is hosting a contest for cartoons that ridicule the Islamic State as militias supported by Tehran expand their fight against the terrorist group in Iraq. Iran’s House of Cartoon, which is financed by the local government in Tehran, has organized the display of the submissions this week from more than 40 countries. While several of the cartoons deride the Islamic State’s (IS) leaders, others link IS to the United States and Israel despite both countries’ denunciations of the group’s attacks.
