from Arutz Sheva Israel News:

"The ban on the pert little American teenage doll produced by the U.S.-based Mattel Company, as well as the accessories she comes with, is part of the response to tightened sanctions against the Islamic Republic by Western nations. Muslim clerics had already succeeded in banning the curvaceous cutie in Saudi Arabia in 2003, outlawing Barbie altogether by declaring her 'offensive to Islam.'

"But Islamic leaders in Iran have been complaining about Barbie's 'destructive cultural and social consequences' since 1996."
