Iran Daily Mocks Middle East Freedom

John on August 19, 2006 at 7:55 pm

Iran Daily, a state run newspaper in Tehran, has an English language version available online. Today, I noticed an editorial cartoon offered on the site:

The cartoon is credited to Stephane Peray. You can see more of her comics here.

I think Ms. Peray probably meant to convey some irony with this image. The statue of liberty faces don’t look too happy about their fate. But I don’t think Iran Daily was presenting this as irony. For them, this is a statement of American failure and, in particular, the failure of freedom as a goal.

Maybe Ms. Peray should let Mr. Ahmadinejad know he’s missing the point.
