Iran Like Nazi Germany? Read This

Here's a perfect example of why the US needs to intervene in Iran immediately. There is a new law proposed in Iran that would require the wearing of badges describing an individual's faith. Jews and Christians would be singled out under this new law to wear identification on their clothing letting others know their religious beliefs.
The next step, arrest and.....????

From the piece quoted:

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.

And this last:

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

That's the least of its ramifications, as is readily discernable to those who have listened to the diatribes of Iran's leader over the last several months/years.

I'll be back


It has come to my attention that Canada.com has removed the piece on this issue. I will put up a link to another source to verify the statements I made before. Thank goodness I put enough blockquotes in my original post to show the gist of the piece.
