Newspaper Retracts Iranian Jewish Arm Badges Story

The National Post has retracted an article that said Iran planned to force Jews and other non-Muslims to wear distinctive insignia.
Also, it turns out the author of the article is aligned with many of the same neocons who beat the drums for war with Iraq.

OTTAWA, Canada — A Canadian newspaper apologized Wednesday for an article that said Iran planned to force Jews and other religious minorities to wear distinctive clothing to distinguish themselves from Muslims.

The National Post ran the piece on its front page Friday along with a large photo from 1944 that showed a Hungarian couple wearing the yellow stars that the Nazis forced Jews to sew to their clothing.

The story, which included tough anti-Iran comments, was picked up widely by Web sites and by other media.
