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.
"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."
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.
Are you $hitting me? These people are EVIL, and they need to have their a$$es kicked immediately if not sooner. It's all well and good to do the UN dance when you're dealing with an impotent tin pot dictator in Africa, but this regime is on the verge of going nuclear, is about as belligerent as any on the planet, and is playing out the Nazi gameplan to a tee. At what point do we just take them at their word, and go about the business of eliminating this threat?
