Is Helen Thomas now at IRIB?

Soccer Dad has an (as usual) interesting post up today: IRIB: "Ahmadinejad orders ban on Israeli goods"

Per the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting :

“President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for the implementation of a bill demanding major efforts to enforce a total boycott on goods with Israeli origin.

“According to the website of the Iranian government, President Ahmadinejad ordered the implementation of the pro-Palestinian bill, which was ratified by the Iranian Parliament earlier in June.”

What got SD (and me) was IRIB’s accompanying graphic (see link) which is a hodge-podge of very famous and previously not-known-to-be-of-Israeli-origin companies. The speculation then is whether the Iranians are going after just Israeli companies or those with any suspected Jewish ties.

If the collage of brands is any indication of what qualifies as a suspect company, then I am definitely rooting for the latter. The represented companies include CNN, Time, Starbucks, Apple, Timberland and Armani. As this is purportedly part of a pro-Palestinian effort, this could cause some consternation among the many leftists who have chosen to make common cause with other anti-Israeli efforts.

Side Note I: …and I suspect the reaction of Professors Walt and Mearsheimer to the idea of such Jewish influence over so many businesses to be a collective “Duh!”

Side Note II: Meanwhile, Tom Friedman is alerting all those who want to stay pure of Zionist-connected corporations to an excellent investment opportunity:  "Pssssst. I’ve got a stock tip. Ready? The Al-Quds Index."
