Iran eyes badges for Jews
Law would require non-Muslim insignia

Jews were made to wear stars to identify them in Nazi Germany.

Human rights groups are raising alarms over a new law passed by the Iranian parliament that would require the country’s Jews and Christians to wear coloured badges to identify them and other religious minorities as non-Muslims.

“This is reminiscent of the Holocaust,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, the dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. “Iran is moving closer and closer to the ideology of the Nazis.”

Iranian expatriates living in Canada yesterday confirmed reports that the Iranian parliament, called the Islamic Majlis, passed a law this week setting a dress code for all Iranians, requiring them to wear almost identical “standard Islamic garments.”

The law, which must still be approved by Iran’s “Supreme Guide” Ali Khamenehi before being put into effect, also establishes special insignia to be worn by non-Muslims.

Iran’s roughly 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on the front of their clothes, while Christians would wear red badges and Zoroastrians would be forced to wear blue cloth.

“There’s no reason to believe they won’t pass this,” said Rabbi Hier. “It will certainly pass unless there’s some sort of international outcry over this.”

Bernie Farber, the chief executive of the Canadian Jewish Congress, said he was “stunned” by the measure. “We thought this had gone the way of the dodo bird, but clearly in Iran everything old and bad is new again,” he said. “It’s state-sponsored religious discrimination.”

Ali Behroozian, an Iranian exile living in Toronto, said the law could come into force as early as next year.

It would make religious minorities immediately identifiable and allow Muslims to avoid contact with non-Muslims.

Mr. Behroozian said it will make life even more difficult for Iran’s small pockets of Jewish, Christian and other religious minorities — the country is overwhelmingly Shi’ite Muslim. “They have all been persecuted for a while, but these new dress rules are going to make things worse for them,” he said.

The new law was drafted two years ago, but was stuck in the Iranian parliament until recently when it was revived at the behest of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

A spokesman for the Iranian Embassy in Ottawa refused to comment on the measures. “This is nothing to do with anything here,” said a press secretary who identified himself as Mr. Gharmani.

“We are not here to answer such questions.” […]

I dont give a flying fuck what they are doing in Iran, and you monsters are going to have to do MUCH better than these stale chestnuts of total bullshit if you want to convince people that we need to ‘take care of Iran’.

It would be far more advisable for people in the UK to think about how they are going to mark Jews, Muslims, Foreigners, HIV sufferers, TB carriers, the un-vaccinated etc etc with the NATIONAL ID CARD, whcih will indelibly mark everyone who lives in the UK with a mark that is FAR WORSE than the alledged ‘badges for Jews’ that are allegedly going to be rolled out in Iran.

Precisely the same thing is being done in the UK, only the mark is visible exclusively to the government.

You idiots need to wake up and smell the stink of tyrrany as the cesspool of democracy begins to backup, overflow, stink up your house and drown you in shit!

    You see how the lying BASTARDS operate? Read this:

    By Parinoosh Arami

    TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran’s new dress code bill is aimed at encouraging designers to work on imaginative Islamic clothing, lawmakers said on Sunday, dismissing a report that the bill sought special outfits for religious minorities.

    Canada’s National Post on Friday reported the draft bill approved last week would force Jews, Christians and other religious minorities such as Zoroastrians to wear colour-coded clothes to distinguish them from Muslims.

    A copy of the bill obtained by Reuters contained no such references. Reuters correspondents who followed the dress code session in parliament as it was broadcast on state radio heard no discussion of proscriptions for religious minorities.

    Senior parliamentarian Mohsen Yahyavi described the Canadian report as “completely false”.

    “The bill aims to support those designers that produce clothes that are more compatible with Islam, but there will be no ban on the wearing of other designs,” he told Reuters.

    Iran’s Jewish MP Moris Motamed also agreed the bill made no attempt to force special garments on the minorities.

    “There is no single word in the bill about a special design or colour for the religious minority groups,” he said.

    “Our enemies seek to create tension among the religious minorities with such news and to exploit the situation to their benefit,” he added.

    The parliamentary bill follows a call from Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who said two years ago Iranians should design a national costume and not take their lead from Western fashion magazines.

    The bill has only been approved as an outline. The details must be agreed then sent to the Guardian Council, Iran’s constitutional watchdog, for approval. […]

    Religious minorities are largely tolerated in Iran, have freedom of worship and some exemptions from the Islamic Republic’s strict rules in the private spaces of their own communities. […]


    And there you have it. Total and complete lies from the beginning. Like I said in my post, ALLEGED.

    You scum are going to have to think of somehing VERY CLEVER to make people get in line for the bombing of Iran. The reality is that there is NOTHING you can say that will convince anyone ANYWHERE.

    You have LOST!

    Man, you should have double-checked to see the original source of the story. The National Post, for your future reference, is the biggest scum rag in Canada, and its stock in trade is propogandist misinformation.

  3. irdial Says:

    You mean everyone else should have double checked, I cast it as totall bullshit from the off; on the other hand this story was carried world wide without even the hint of surprise or suspicion.

  4. Barrie Says:

    Good point! Your bullshit detector is sharp like a finely honed Katana.
    This story actually appeared in our city’s Journal, a generally respectable paper. It’s quite amazing how many people pick up on a sensational story like this. As you said, this behaviour is a weird (and wrong) projection of our desire to imprint our holier-than-thou “values” onto other nations, to make us feel better about ourselves (I am using the general “us” here). People then take this behaviour as doing their part, and proceed to be in denial about how shitty things are at home. I would imagine this is because they assume that things are all perfect and democratic at home, and this gives them the right to comment on the societies of others. They assume that they are better than another society, that another society truly is an “other,” stupid and childish and easy to teach and willing to learn. If there were any more catastrophically asinine an assumption, I’d like to see it. I have always found denial to be the most pathetic thing to witness.

    Newspaper apologizes for anti-Iran report
    Tehran summons envoy to explain Canadian leader’s remarks

    OTTAWA, Canada (Reuters) — A Canadian newspaper apologized Wednesday for an article that said Iran planned to force Jews and other religious minorities to wear distinctive clothing to distinguish themselves from Muslims.

    The National Post ran the piece on its front page Friday along with a large photo from 1944 that showed a Hungarian couple wearing the yellow stars that the Nazis forced Jews to sew to their clothing.

    The story, which included tough anti-Iran comments, was picked up widely by Web sites and by other media.

    “Is Iran turning into the new Nazi Germany? Share your opinion online,” the paper asked readers Friday.

    But the National Post, a longtime supporter of Israel and critic of Tehran, admitted Wednesday it had not checked the piece thoroughly enough before running it.

    “It is now clear the story is not true,” Douglas Kelly, the National Post’s editor in chief, wrote in a long editorial on Page 2. “We apologize for the mistake and for the consternation it has caused not just National Post readers, but the broader public who read the story.”

    The article was based on a column by Iranian expatriate writer Amir Taheri, who said a law being debated by Iran’s parliament would force Jews to sew a yellow strip of cloth to their clothes. Christians would wear a red strip while Zoroastrians would wear a blue one. […]


    Another ‘Chalabi’ trying to engineer regime change! Bastard!
