Iran eyes badges for Jews

Where did I hear of something similiar happening? It didn't end pretty.

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.

That would make it easier to kill them. Man, Iran is just asking for an ass-kicking. I remember when I was a kid my younger sister would taunt me and taunt me until, finally, I ordered airstrikes and ground forces captured her and detained her in Cuba.

"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."

Moving closer and closer to becoming a parking lot is more like it.

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."

I've heard of mandatory uniforms in schools but never in an entire country. This should have a happy outcome.
