Dressed To Kill
....At the urging of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's parliament on Sunday approved an "Iranian dress code" for both sexes. The ministries of culture and commerce, the parliament's cultural commission and the state television authority will now work with mullahs, clothing designers and tailors on an official catalog of permissible dress.
The Iranian government has decided to create a national dress code.
Tehran -The Iranian parliament approved on Sunday the generalities of the 'national dress code' bill which is supposed to replace current Western-style fashions, state news television IRIB reported.
According to the draft bill, which is yet to be finalized and reconfirmed by the senate-like Guardian Council, facilities should be prepared for local designers and tailors to focus on outfits in line with 'Iran's national and Islamic identification and culture.'
The outcry was sparked when Iranian exiles in Toronto reported to the Canadian National Post that Tehran had passed a law ordering Jews to wear the Yellow Star, Christians a red ribbon, and Zoroastrians a blue article of clothing.
Haroun Yeshaya, until recently head of Iran’s Jewish Committee, denied knowledge of such a clause.
However, the law has not been finally enacted, and speakers in the majlis debate proposed that non-Muslim minorities be made to wear distinctive clothes, yellow being the preferred color for Jews.

Creedo, do I smell Nazi? I think I do. The Middle Eastern countries are not, ''stone age basards'', far from it in fact, you've been watching too much TV.
Pfft... you go right ahead and live with your head in the sand. A little WWII history will show you that Muslims supported Nazi Germany as they were going to destroy their biggest enemy... the Jews!! They have no respect for non-Muslims whatsoever and THAT in itself is a very dangerous way to run a government.

Well, I'll start worrying about the implants when that comes around. We don't have them here yet but I would think that would be just as big of a deal. One is about to happen and theother is not, apples and oranges.
It is kind of the same idea and both are pretty bad. I'm willing to bet it would be everyone with a chip in the US and only non Muslims with patches in Iran. This shows that the version in Iran would be worse since it's singling out targets for hate crimes and government abuse of minorities.
Not the same thing at all the more I think about it.

Who would be a greater authority?
I think we can now file this away.
The Iranian draft law which raised a world uproar was obtained Friday night, May 19, by DEBKAfile, and proved to contain no clause on a Yellow Star for Jews or special dress for non-Muslim minorities in its 13-clause text
All the sources I found for this article on google are either coming from Canada or being linked by other sites using the Canadian ones as their source.
Just what the hell are you Canadians up to?
Look I have here several Iranian news websites, and none of them are reporting this at all. You would think if the "NAZI Islamo-facists" are trying to persecute, they would be parading this stuff all over their own media outlets. They are not.

These papers and many others fround around the world can be located at Online Newspapers Which I found thanks to Columbia Journalism Review
I have to wonder what the Canadian media is up to here. There will be an investigation. This appears to be intentional defamation at first glance. I am open minded though, so I will throw the idea that perhaps some Canadian Spy agents infiltrated the nation and leaked the reports to their press.
