A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Cartoonist Paul Conrad is challenging Ted Rall for the title of America's Dumbest Cartoonist. Conrad's latest cartoon (found here) likens the Israelis to Osama bin Laden's terrorists. An airliner with the Star of David on its tail heads toward the towers of two mosques.

The lack of moral direction that it takes to suggest that Israelis are terrorists because they are attempting to defend their nation from suicide bombers is amazing. The Israelis didn't start this thing.

The Israelis are in a war similar to ours. Yasser Arafat and Osama bin Laden are brothers in terror. They are cut from the same cloth.

I hope that Conrad's cartoon earns him much of the same condemnation that has been visited on Rall.

*UPDATE* I've had several people suggest that the two towers are not those of mosques, but of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. I've seen several pictures of the church, and it does not have two towers. I guess Conrad's just practicing some artistic license. Whether it's the Church of the Nativity or a mosque -- the cartoon is still disgusting.
