The Jew-Badge Returns to Iran?

News Report: 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.

Iran's roughly 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on the front of their clothes...


Update: Commentor Simon, the publishing newspaper and this Iranian blogger says, wrong, the story is false or a misinterpretation of the new law (the Iranian blogger translates the key points of the law in English on his blog.)
