Dogs are currently being confiscated from their owners by the Police. Lawmakers are PROPOSING a bill to Parliament, which makes dog ownership a CRIME! They say it is part of Islam law not to keep unpure/dangerous creatures.

So, in other words, Iran wants to kill all dogs in the country. How can one even react to this without anger, disgust, and yes,hate toward this country's government?

When it comes to dogs, It might be unfair to accuse Islam only.Jews also have the same point of view regarding dogs . This applies to Muslim and Jews observant families. I am not sure that a bill has been already presented to the Iranian parliament but we all know that what is called "the Islamic revolution " took place in Iran at the end of the 1970's and the question is: Why now after more than 34 years this issue is being raised?? I am afraid it might be a part of the propaganda against Iran and Islam.
In Egypt for example and other Islamic countries people are (to the best of my knowledge) free to own dogs if they like although straw dogs are sometimes being terminated because they are dangerous.

Signed. Humans must learn to mind their own lives and stay away from other beings' life journeys! Once he focus is shifted to the inner worlds and light within each human, this cruelty and abject control via a very malicious belief system will end! Who told anyone in the history of this creation that MAN has the RIGHT to intrude upon and dominate any other being? This is a lie that was made up by the most ignorant and inserted into "holy" texts. True SPIRIT DEMANDS NON-INTERFENCE and NO HARM while we are guests here on Earth!

Goodness, if anyone tried to take my dog from me I'd bite them. Seriously, this has been a problem in Iran for some time and it seems, from the documentary I've seen, that Iran is against dog ownership because it promotes western values. It's a tragic misunderstanding and one that I hope can be rectified.

In the Winter, the drivers have long hair and long thick beards. They smell of the foods they eat. I have told more than one driver that my dog is cleaner than they are. They really do treat dogs bad...even here in our country!

Noted, signed and forwarded. The Koran states, and clearly, that animals must be fed, housed, and looked after, and the "righteous man" does not forget them. So what the hell is this crap the lunatics who rule Iran all about? I sometimes wonder what the world would have been like the past two thousand years if James the Just, Brother of Jesus, who led the Jesus movement in Jerusalem, had won his battle to stop Paul hijacking what has since been called Christianity. James has a lot to answer for. And in the same way, those sectarians who have hijacked Islam have not just skewed the teachings in the Koran and other texts, they have simply ignored them, as Paul did as he substituted himself for Jesus. One result of all this is that out of Paul we got the Crusades, and now out of people such as the Iranian heretics and Al-Queda we have gross distortion of 'Jihad', a word used once in the Koran and meaning to spread the teachings of Islam by study and by philanthropy, NOT to do violence, which is deemed the antithesis of true Jihad. God above.

Many men of many religions have thought other living beings to be unpure and dangerous. Many have thought that about human females, even those they were related to. Religions were written by men, not God. And written & reinterpreted for the benefit of men, not God.
