Valentine's Day = Day of Rage in Iran

From The Blaze:
In Iran it is estimated that a staggering 70% of all Iranians are under 30 and a “day of rage” is being planned for Monday, Valentines Day AND just last month the government banned the production of anything to do with Valentines Day in Iran, stating;
“Printing and producing any products related to Valentine’s Day, including posters, brochures, advertising cards, boxes with the symbols of hearts, half-hearts, red roses and any activities promoting this day are banned,” read the instruction. “Authorities will take legal action against those who ignore the ban.”
Coincidence?    I think not.
Saturday’s Wall Street Journal Op-Ed piece from Melik Kaylan boils it down for us;
The Iranian state has pronounced against unauthorized mingling of the sexes, rap music, rock music, Western music, women playing in bands, too-bright nail polish, laughter in hospital corridors, ancient Persian rites-of-spring celebrations (Nowrooz), and even the mention of foreign food recipes in state media. This last may sound comically implausible, but it was officially announced by a state-run website on Feb. 6. So now the true nature of pasta as an instrument of Western subversion has been revealed.
The regime’s posture turns the smallest garden-variety gestures into thrilling acts of subversion. Slipping a Valentine card to a girlfriend takes on the significance of samizdat. Every firecracker set off during Nowrooz diminishes the police state’s claims to omniscience. The mullahs have appointed themselves the enemy of fun; as a result, wherever fun herniates into view, it is a politicized eruption of defiance.

“A man can have sex with animals such as sheeps, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village; however, selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.”
From Ayatollah Khomeini's book, "Tahrirolvasyleh"

"There is no room for play in Islam ... It is deadly serious about everything." (also from the Ayatollah Khomeini)


When taken together, I come to understand why the celebration of St. Valentine's Day would be banned in Iran. It's all about the 'religion of peace'.

It figures these hateful goons would ban Valentines Day. They are against all love, kindness & goodness. They are pure evil.

Have a fun Valentine's Day Weekend, Opie, while we can still celebrate out here ;-)

It seems like dysfunctional, disdainful relations between the sexes are mandated by islam.

How such display of savage, evil, lunacy continues to be promoted as a religion of peace, especially since the word love doesn't appear at all in the Koran, is beyond me however I'm a rational human being, but it does explain their war against "love".

I wonder if there will be violence on the day of rage.
