BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iran displays Holocaust cartoons

From the Beep:
More than 200 Holocaust cartoons from around the world are on display at a museum in the Iranian capital, Tehran.

Organisers of the exhibition say they are testing the West's commitment to freedom of speech.

Okay.....this doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

But here's not a very difficult bet to make. I bet that there will be some official condemnation and strongly worded letters BUT there will be no violent riots or destruction of the Iranian embassy or mosque or attacks on Iranians.

If nothing else, I think that's very telling.
