What Up With That Iran?

Source: Yahoo News

A senior Iranian cleric has decreed dogs are “unclean” and should not be kept as pets — a move aimed at discouraging Western-style dog ownership in the Islamic state, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Dogs are considered “unclean” under Islamic tradition but, while relatively rare in Iran, some people do keep them as pets.

By issuing a fatwa — a religious ruling — Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi has sent a clear message that this trend must stop.

As Deandre Cole would say: WHAT UP WITH THAT?!?


  1. We just do not understand some cultures. We agree - What is up with that!?!

  2. Some people just have no idea what they're talking about.
