History's Yellow Bands

I'm not even sure how to start this entry.

Each time I begin, I shake my head and savagely assault the "backspace" button. The blank space mocks any word I type in, but I gotta say it some how.

"New Iranian law to require Jews to wear yellow band."

What do you say when you see history begin to repeat itself before your very eyes? What do you think when actions thought to have seen their ends two generations before reappear in modern society?

The only upside of this situation is that Christians and Zoroastrians will be forced to follow the dress code as well. I'm not saying this because misery loves company, but because, let's face it, the world still cares more about Christians than Jews. The Christian European nations will swoop down on Ahmadinejad, not to mention our own most Christian President Bush. By including Christians in his Holocaust-like law, Ahmadinejad will find himself royally screwed.

But enact a law limiting the freedom of Jews and Israel will sound the only outcry. Oh sure, there will be a little hand-wringing from other nations, but would we see people banging down the doors of their national embassies? I doubt it.

Forgive me, I'm being angry and cynical. :( The world is better than that, isn't it?

Isn't it?



  1. We should hope it's a better place than that but . . .*shudder*. . . it is disturbing news all the same.

  2. Amen to that.
