Iran's OK With Terrorists, But Not Terrierists

Iran is creating dog prisons for confiscated dogs.

From The Telegraph comes this story:

Iranian authorities have banned all advertisements for pets, pet food and other pet products.

The decision by Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance comes after the fatwa was issued by powerful cleric Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi.

While keeping dogs as pets has become increasingly fashionable in Iran in recent years, the fatwa cited Islamic tradition, which dictates that dogs are unclean.

A perfect place for PETA to set up headquarters ... like minds.
