One of the things that makes Iran so controversial is the fact that their president, Mahmoud Amadinejad has publicly stated that the Holocaust never happened. But, for someone who believed that the Holocaust never took place, the Iranian government is definitely taking the first steps toward their own Holocaust. A law recently passed by the Iranian parliament requires Jews and Christians to wear colored badges. The law includes a dress code, requiring all people in Iran to dress in “standard Islamic garments,” and distinguishes Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians from Muslims by making them wear distinguishing markers. Jews must wear a yellow strip of cloth, Christians a red badge, and Zoroastrians blue cloth.
N0w, let’s take a step back in history and look at just how similar the Iranians are getting to Nazi Germany:
In the lead-up to WWII, Germany started re-arming, despite the prohibition to such actions outlined in the Treaty of Versailles. Adolf Hitler was whipping the German people up into a frenzy, blaming their economic woes on the Jews, and spreading his message of Aryan superiority.
Currently, Iran is actively seeking nuclear weapons, despite objections from people across the globe. Ahmadinejad and Khamenei are trying to whip the Iranian people up into a frenzy, stirring anti-Jew, anti-Christian, anti-Israel, and anti-US hatred, spreading their message of Muslim superiority.
The parallels are quite obvious. World War III has already begun – Iraq and Afghanistan are the first battlefields. And while so many politicians in the US are manufacturing historic parallels between Iraq and Vietnam (which rarely, if ever, hold up to scrutiny), they would perhaps be better served to go further back in time to draw their parallels…because if the trend continues in Iran, we will have a hauntingly familiar scene – one of Hitlerian domination and genocide – and the only difference will be how high the Christian and Jew body count gets before we actually do something about it.
