from freerepublic:

"Buying and selling dogs is illegal in Iran, unless they are guard dogs or used by police. Dogs are considered 'haram,' or unclean, in Islam ...

"In April, Iran's parliament passed a bill to criminalize dog ownership, declaring the phenomenon a sign of 'vulgar Western values.'

"This summer, so-called morality police are cruising the streets looking to enforce the anti-dog law. The punishment varies from a fine of up to $500 if the dog is seen in a public space ..."

But if Iranians buy burkas for their dogs, how will the "morality police" know?

Obviously even dogs knew how evil mohammed was. And of course allah hates dogs too. It doesn't surprise me, the moon demon hates everything, except waging war on kafirs.

Muslims think dogs are "unclean"....Boy! That's rich! I wonder what dogs think of Muslims. Dogs are loyal, loving, intelligent animals....everything Muslims can never be.

We can stand on the moon, manipulate gene's, peer into the cosmos, but religion propels some of us back to the time of primitive cave dwellers. Only religion can account for such a huge gap.

If they are going to enact the anti-dog law by banning any dogs on the street, then all iranians will be forced to stay at home.

Dogs are superior to the radical muslim . The Dog only want to dominate the couch the muslim want the world. In many other ways my dog is very simuler to the lower types of muslim he will given the chance fook anything with a pulse any age any sex hes really not fussy. He disagrees with other dogs fighting and growling at other dogs. Given a chance he would join other dogs and form a pack and terrorise an area my that happens in France the dog/muslims burn cars steal and are very violent. Is this not the truth?

Religion has always been a poison to civilization all religions. Replacing logic, reason, and science with magic and superstition is NEVER a good idea.

The "Free Republic" people are stupid, ignorant morons.
Buying and selling dogs in Iran is NOT illegal.
The only requirements are that you ensure it receives it's vaccines (rabies etc) and ensure it's welfare.
What a load of crap. In my family loads of us owned dogs as pets, not as "guard dogs"

Oh get lost you ignorant peasant. Go view the videos of "EDL" members on the internet, and look at the high levels of crime, uncivil conduct, and general low morality and barbaric behaviour in your own country first.
