I'm sure that there are a lot of places enthused about emigrants w/ Iranian passports...I always think that's a good idea too but then the details are dicey, unless there's some kind of 'movement' to help people escape or something like that.


Oh I know it wouldn't exactly be easy to just pick up and move. That's why I mentioned having money and the ability to move. If someone's got it, I suggest moving. :-o

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.


I think sewing marks on clothings has been tried before....circa the mid-late 1930's and early 1940's.... :-/

Trouble is brewing again here.... :-o

Europe has said they would build Iran a lightwater nuclear powerplant. So much for that.

Sorry - I forgot the link:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,196852,00.html

TORONTO — A Canadian newspaper apologized Wednesday for publishing an erroneous story last week alleging that the Iranian parliament had passed a law that would require Jews and Christians to wear badges identifying them as religious minorities in public.

Iran's conservative parliament last week began debating a draft law that would discourage women from wearing Western clothing and encourage citizens to wear Islamic-style garments.

The measure provoked outrage outside Iran after the National Post, a conservative national daily, reported last Friday that the bill included provisions requring Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims to wear a patch of colored cloth on the front of their garments — in a chilling throwback to Nazi Germany, when Jews were forced to wear the yellow star of David.

It's all Mookie's fault! :-b

What's Canada thinking? They don't normally pick fights. You guys finally get bored with the trees and snow and stuff, or what? :-?
