Tolerance, Iranian-Style

This is categorized under "I-wish-I-had-said-it-first-but-I-am-glad-someone-did." I couldn't help but agree with this short letter to the editor that appeared in today's National Post:

Re: Fury as Iran parades captive sailors on TV, March 29.

Do you hear that sound? The sound of people rioting in the streets because a female British hostage was forced to wear a headscarf during a televised "confession"? Didn't think so. Now imagine a Guantanamo prisoner, forced to wear a crucifix or a yarmulke on TV. Once again, cultural "tolerance" proves to be a one-way street.
