IRAN (ANS) -- The Iranian Revolutionary Guard backed news agency, Fars, has published a caricature of the concept of God!

Satellite controlled assassination of commander of Al-Qassam militants.

According to a story by Mohabat Iranian News, this caricature is called "Satellite controlled assassination of commander of Al-Qassam militants."

The caricature, published on Nov. 19, illustrates the recent Gaza conflicts.

Mohabat News said the basis for the caricature is the "Creation of Man" painting by Michelangelo.

Mohabat News commented, "It seems the caricaturist had either not seen the Michelangelo painting or not fully comprehended its true meaning. (That's) ... because in the caricature, Israel is given a position equal to God, speaking of the Michelangelo painting."

Michelangelo's Creation of Man.

Mohabat News continued to say that the "Creation of Man" is all about giving life, while the image put in the place of God in the caricature is basically taking lives."

Mohabat News further commented, "When someone decides to use the idea of another artist in their work, they are expected to study its meaning before applying the idea. If such a caricature had been published in a pro-reformists' media, everyone would have gone against them saying they had insulted God. But since this is published in a conservative media, no one dares to say anything."
