There are 25 000 Jews living in Iran. Few knew, bet you didn't know. Ahmedinejad, the one and only, along with the Iranian Parliament however knows that, and has passed new laws that were proposed two years ago. What now then has the "Holocaust Denying" leader done, you ask?

According to an article in the National Post:

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 thought black was in? Moving on to a different style? Where will inspiration be drawn for these new dress codes?

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.

Star Trek, I'm telling you people. If I recall it correctly there are both blue, yellow and red uniforms available on the Voyager.

Someone needs to seriously beem up Ahmedinejad...and preferably drop him on some planet somewhere that the rest of us are yet to discover. Nazi-stan.

This is a joke, right?

The more I read about this guy, the better he's looking.

Lol, the resemblance to Spock is striking isn't it!

A friend of mine put it quite eloquently. The man is either mad, or on someone's payroll.

Either way he is gonna cause some serious problems me thinks.

Samawel said...

he's just insane... and very paranoid... Don't know why such people manage to make it to the top.

BuJ said...




(and I thought i'd add my face here too...)

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Well Samawel, what can I say. It seems a prerequisite to make it to the top is to be insane or mad or heartless.

Buj ahlan :) wa sahlan 3ala wajhak kaman!

Great. Just what the Muslim world needs right now.

Der Muslim von nebenan said...

Salaam, idags DN skriver att det var en tidningsanka (sidor 16).

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Salams Umar, long time no see :)

Apparently according t oa Swedish newspaper, that Der muslim von nebenan just highlighted, the article is a "bluff".

Well well.

Vad märkligt? Jag har inte hittat artikeln ännu. Man tycker ju att det borde ha dragit till sig mer uppmärksamhet om det varit sant så det ligger nog en poäng i det.

MJ said...

WOW... It's like in a novel. Big Brother yo!

omg. imagine someone telling me I have to wear a red badge wherever I go! I will...CUT THEIR HEADS. or do something worse.

Boo! said...

I'm not sure what impresses me more... the dress-code, or your analogy to Star Trek :)

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Peace love and no machetes MJ :) I know what you mean though, a government telling someone how to dress is just beyond sanity.

boo lol! well kya kehna hai? :)

Arabized said...

i cant help but be baffled.

what the hell is up with this guy?

this is going too far!

* kudos points for the star trek analogy.

CG said...

Oh my. This is so so so bloody scarey. I mean it is only a small hop over the water to Bander Abbas....waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Thanks for the cookie Biz. I am not watching my weight so I wouldn't mind a whole cake. With strawberries, cream and almonds, please.

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Hala CG! Good to have you here:) Well Ahmedinejad being so "charismatic" what with his sense of fashion and all, surely even the Emirates will soon catch on and the hop won't be necessery.

However I think heads will be rolling should that happen, if MJ has anything to say about it...

Buj where are are you? How is that t-shirt coming along?

Seabrook Crisps said...

the guy has got balls i'll give him that, but setting dress codes for different religions is wrong.

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Well balls and brains made out of balls. It is of course beyond wrong to set dresscodes, even more so when it is done to highlight minorities thus targeting them.

You still in Dubai britpak?

opinionatedinjerzee said...

reminds me of that book "The Scarlet Letter"!!! People are crazy i tell ya!!

BuJ said...

"ahlan wa sahlan bi wujhak" instead!

MJ.. very rational comments.. i am impressed!

CG: bandar abbas is close, but kish island is closer and nicer.

britpak: well balls with no brains is like spaghetti with no stains! It's not fun, and means u didn't enjoy your meal. down will ball-brains!

SS: i am here.. but with reduced visibility.. haven't had time to work on the t-shirt.. but i thought u were going to provide that :)

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Jerzee kuri, they sure are!

Buj, do I have to do everything? I give the ideas and now I must materialize kaman?

Thanx for the 3arabi lesson. Indeed it is ahlan bi... wa salam 3ala... Mixed them up I guess.

Anyways back to making vanilla sauce. Biz where's that cake?

EXSENO said...

I am so shocked. I don't know why I should be the way things are going in the world today. This is awful. I tried to read the story, but it has been taken off of the National Post.

I have enjoyed reading your blog, I hope that you don't mind my visit. I found this site by way of Shirazi.

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Exseno! You are always welcome :)
Are you greek by any chance, or just a big fan of My big fat greek wedding? lol
Well aren't we all exsenos at one point or the other.

It is disturbing news what's going on in Iran. The interesting thing is, apparently the news story has been refuted by other iranians saying it was taken out of context and that the clothing adjustment will just be for muslims, getting a more "strict" (if possible) islamic attire.

At the end of the day, what's worrying is not so much that the story may have been partially "untrue"...the real worrying part is how we wouldn't be surprised if Ahmedinejad really did implement such brainless laws.

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Exseno one more thing, who is Shirazi? I don't recognize the name?
