CJC Protests Cartoon Award

MONTREAL (JTA) —
The Canadian Jewish Con-
gress (CJC) has angrily pro-
tested against an award
winning cartoon which it
charged is a defamation of
the Holocaust."
The cartoon, drawn by
Antonio Antunes Moreira of
Portugal, shows Israeli
soldiers tormenting
Lebanese women and chil-
dren. One segment of the
cartoon depicts the soldiers
pointing their rifles at a
child. It was selected as the
$5,000 grand prize winner
of the 20th International
Salon of Cartoons in
Montreal last week.
According to the CJC, the
drawing is almost identical
with the famous photograph

of World War II showing Holocaust with events in
Nazi soldiers pointing the Middle East — even if
