Barbie, Public Enemy #1 in Iran … Police Shut Down Shops Selling Barbie Dolls


Iranian  police crack down on public enemy #1 … Barbie.  Police round up Barbie in Iran for women to dare wear bikinis and mini-skirts.

Police have closed down dozens of toy shops for selling Barbie dolls in Iran, part of a decades-long crackdown against “manifestations of Western culture,” the semiofficial Mehr news agency reported Friday.

Barbie dolls are sold wearing swimsuits and miniskirts in a society where women must wear headscarves in public, and men and women are not allowed to swim together.

Because its a religion of peace. I guess we can add tolerance and choice to it as well.

      It keeps sounding more and more like a
      complete Totalitarian Political System with
      a religious component. Peace (so
      called) is encouraged by the sword as
      is total compliance with the System. The
      radical portion that’s doing all the killing
      definitely hurts the ‘Peaceful’ image
      of the rest. No room for Barbie in this

      Wait till it hits America, are we going to let this happen? Where is the out rage? When do we come together as one to stop Islam from taking over America and replacing it with repressive laws?
