While many Iranian Americans are assimilated and harmless and secular, many are not (check out the pro-Khomeini/Hezbollah Iranian Shi’ites all over Dearbornistan and Dearbornistan Heights). And even some who are secular have cultural loyalties and frequently go “back home.” And so you have to admire that Apple–unlike other computer hardware and software companies–is really taking the Iranian embargo seriously. Contrast that with the whore Carly Fiorina, who got around these laws as the failed head of HP by forming non-American subsidiaries to sell to Iran. Steve Jobs may be gone, but his principles live on. Don’t forget that he was smart enough to disavow any Muslim and Arab heritage of the sperm donor who abandoned him. And–as reader Gerald pointed out–that Jobs refused to sell porn apps. Now, there’s this, which is how EVERY American company should operate in putting the country’s best interests and the laws ahead of the might dollar:
The thing is, there are many supporters of Iran who are not Iranian, don’t speak Farsi, and don’t have Iranian surnames. They are Lebanese Shi’ites who speak Arabic, etc. And there are many Jews and Zoroastrians who are of Iranian descent living in America, who have Iranian surnames and speak Farsi. And yet they don’t comprise any threat of taking their iPads to Iran. So, perhaps the law and the way it’s enforced should be changed. Still, I applaud Apple for taking it seriously.
More details here.
So, how long until the lawyers and the lawsuits get going? 3-2-1 . . . . The Farsi litigation jihad troops are gettin’ ready. Cha-ching.
Three cheers for Apple for being a good American corporate citizen. Steve Jobs would be proud.
