Iran correction

Not that I think Iran isn’t capable of

Not that I think Iran isn’t capable of this kind of thing, but when a correction is due, a correction is due. Canada’s National Post has retracted the story about Iran planning legislation that would require minorities to wear identifying symbols on their clothing.Shame on them. Not only is this bad journalism, but it makes all future true reports of this nature carry less weight. This is a rather extreme example of my comments earlier this month regarding accusations of anti-Semitism being casually thrown around and weakening the strength of the term when truly deserved.
