(Jerusalem Post, 5/19/06) A new dress-code law reportedly passed in Iran this past week mandates the government to make sure that religious minorities - Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians - will have to adopt distinct color schemes to make them identifiable in public, the Canadian National Post reported. Under the new law, which still awaits final approval from Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s 25,000 Jews will have to wear a yellow band on their exterior in public, while Christians will be required to don red ones and Zoroastrians would be have to wear blue strips of cloth. If the law is approved, it is scheduled to go into effect at the beginning of next year. Furthermore, according to the law, the Iranian government has envisioned that all Iranians wear “standard Islamic garments” designed to remove ethnic and class distinctions. [According to the Iran government] the purpose for the law was to prevent Muslims from becoming najis “unclean” by accidentally shaking the hands of non-Muslims in public.According to the National Post story, “The new law was drafted two years ago, but was stuck in the Iranian parliament until recently when it was revived at the behest of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.”If true, this “new” law was plagiarized from the pages of Hitler’s Mein Kampf, which today remains a best seller throughout the Middle East!The darkest chapters of human history may well be repeating themselves before our very eyes. Iran is led by a madman who has repeatedly called for Israel to be “wiped off the map.” The nation is furiously working on its own “Manhattan project.” How much longer until Ahmadinejad attempts to implement his own “final solution”? The free world cannot act soon enough. (American Values, Gary Bauer)Israel’s Meretz Party Chairman Yossi Beilin said, “Israel could no longer be satisfied with warnings, and that the moment Jews are forced to wear the yellow band, Israel must act to evacuate all Jews from Iran.” He added that, “Israel must stand at the forefront of efforts to separate Iran’s crazy and Hitlerite regime from government control.”

“The new law resembles the Holocaust,” said head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, Rabbi Marvin Heir, and warned that, “Iran was nearing Nazi Ideology.” Wiesenthal Center officials sent a letter to United Nations Director General Kofi Annan urging him “not to ignore” the new law, and reminded him that, “The world ignored Hitler for many years.”
