Congratulations, Mayor Delshad & Iranian Jews Who Wanted ENGLISH Ballots

By Debbie Schlussel
Recently, I told you about Jimmy Delshad, the Iranian-Jewish-American who was the frontrunner to become Mayor of Beverly Hills. Well, on March 6th, Delshad got the votes, and he’ll be Bevery Hills’ next mayor.
Delshad will also be the highest ranking Iranian-American in the U.S., which as I wrote, is a great finger in the eye to anti-Semitic Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Also, of note, I told you that because of an absurd federal law, Beverly Hills was sending out ballots in Farsi, which garnered hundreds of complaints from the many Iranian-born Jews who live and vote in Beverly Hills and who are proud Americans that pride themselves in speaking and reading English. More from today’s USA Today:

Beverly Hills’ Mayor-Elect Jimmy Delshad & Wife Lonnie

City Clerk Byron Pope ordered ballots in last week’s election printed in English, Spanish and Farsi. City Hall received hundreds of complaints concerning the ballots, including many from Iranians, outgoing Mayor Steve Webb says. “They were upset and embarrassed. They’re very proud of being Americans, proud of their command of the English language.”

To reiterate, this is the difference between Jews and others who come here from Muslim countries and Muslims who come here. The Infidels adapt to America. The Muslims who come here want America to transform itself into Islamerica.
Go to Dearbornistan, and unless you read Arabic, there are so many sections where you’ll be in another country.

I thought you could only vote if you are a citizen and part of earning your citizenship is to be able to understand English. Has that changed in the last few years?

One of the oldest problems the Jews had was their willingness to assimilate…which is why Adonai always had a foot to their throat!!!

Good for him and who all complained.
I used to live in san jose california. I got in the mail a postcard from the state election group and they asked me what language I wanted my ballot and book in (this was in 2006 first time I ever got it in an election here), I was like..what the heck? SO I filled it out dutifully, English of course.
I get my ballot and book in SPANISH! I was hot. I really let them have it. I’m just insulted that they use our tax payer dollar to send out something that should be a given that it should be in English. If you refuse to learn it, then you shouldn’t be able to vote. I BARELY had time to get my ballot in english before the vote. That is one of the reasons I was so angry. I was almost denied the right to vote via proper language.
To the earlier poster, yes you are required to know english when coming LEGALLY. But many illegals live in California..I have no idea why I had like 7 boxes of languages to choose from but I did…selected the right one and still got the wrong ballot.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t yell at waiters for getting my order wrong, I’m polite and smile and very understanding of mistakes..but come here…speak english..is that hard to ask? I shouldn’t have to select a language box and almost miss voting!
