Iranian Jew forced to pretend to care about prophet cartoons and/or Fitna

And he delivers such a perfect regurgitation of official Iranian propaganda-style that he does not even name what he is pretending to care about, instead substituting platitudes about "all religions." And if there is such a thing as Abrahamic solidarity, Iran is probably its biggest enemy. From Mehr News:
Iranian Jewish lawmaker Moris Mo’tamed on Monday called on the "followers of all religions" to protest against any sacrilege against divine religions.

"It is a rational principle in modern societies that anyone should respect the rights of others and remain mindful of other religions’ redlines," Mo’tamed told the Mehr News Agency.

"Duty is heavier for followers of Abrahamic religions to observe religious redlines and respect the beliefs of others because they enjoy the majority of the world’s religious makeup," he observed.

Mo’tamed suggested "holding dialogue between Abrahamic religions" in order to confront the problem of insulting religious beliefs.

It has been a central theme of conferences and symposiums around the world and Iranian government has also taken steps to promote the idea in Iran, he added.

The Jewish lawmaker said if the followers of various religions work together, they can help prevent the desecration of sanctities.

"When a journalist, cartoonist or filmmaker realizes that their work is not popular, they will no longer feel motivated to continue," Moris Mo’tamed stated.
He went on to explain that it is particularly important not to insult the sanctities of aggressive latecomer Abrahamic religions and all world divine religions should work together to confront prophet cart... er . . . desecration of all religions.
