No Chocolate (Or Benetton or Coca-Cola) For You: Iran’s HAMAS Soup Nazis Riot Against, Burn Down “Zionist” Businesses

By Debbie Schlussel
In Iran, which has terrible inflation and unemployment, madman leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad must be having a good time, since–temporarily–his citizens are forgetting the problems he’s helped bring upon them. Instead, Iranians–in support of HAMAS and against Jews and Israel–are rioting and looting businesses they say are “Zionist.” That includes Nestle, Benetton, Coke, Pepsi, and Calvin Klein (forget about their Calvins–there’s nothing between them and their hate). For the record, Benetton is not owned by Jews and is anti-Israel (more on that below). Today Iranians torched a fairly new Benetton store and have these dumb “No Chocolate for You” anti-Nestle HAMAS Soup Nazi signs in Farsi.
FYI, the real-life “Soup Nazi,” Ali “Al” Yeganeh, is an Iranian-born Muslim. So, it’s not actually such a stretch.



No Nestle for You: Iran’s Uni-browed HAMAS Soup Nazis Take a Stand

TEHRAN–A BRANCH of Italian clothing retailer Benetton was set on fire in Iran amid angry protests against the Israeli onslaught on the Hamas-ruled Gaza, media reports said on Wednesday.
The store, located on Dowlat street in upmarket north Teheran, ‘was set on fire by unknown people,’ conservative Jomhuri Eslami newspaper and several other media reported.
The Teheran fire department said the cause of the incident, which occurred very early on Tuesday, was under investigation, ISNA news agency reported.
Benetton ‘is said to be linked with the Zionist network,’ government newspaper Iran charged, adding that its opening in the Islamic republic ‘has sparked several disputes over the past two years and people and student bodies objected to its activities.’
Several Benetton stores have opened in the past two years in fashion-starved Iran, where global brands have largely been absent since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
Last year a group of prominent MPs protested against Benetton’s presence in Iran, alleging that it was owned by a ‘Zionist millionaire’ and that its fashions were a bad influence on female consumers.
Angry protests have been held across Iran since Israel launched a deadly air raid on Gaza on Saturday.
On Tuesday evening a group of Iranian demonstrators stormed the British diplomatic compound in Teheran to protest London’s stance towards the Israeli offensive, which has so far killed at least 374 Palestinians.
Iran is a staunch supporter of the Islamist movement Hamas and does not recognise its archfoe Israel.
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei decreed on Sunday that anyone who died in the defence of Gaza would be deemed a martyr.
Islamic republic conservatives have long urged consumers to boycott ‘Zionist’ products, ranging from Coca-Cola and Pepsi soft drinks, to Calvin Klein clothing and Nestle food products.

Reality check: Benetton is not a Jewish-owned company, nor is it pro-Israel. In fact, 67% of it is owned by the Benetton family, which is not Jewish. And the company sent out an anti-Israel brochure, entitled “Enemies,” which was full of lies. That’s not to mention a dumb Benetton Jewish-Arab kiss ad, meant to offend.
Well, no-one ever accused Muslims of being the smartest people in the world. Remember, there’s a reason his name was Einstein, not Al-Einawi.
Like I keep saying, we can’t say it’s a clash of civilizations because when you’re dealing with Muslims, you’re the only civilization involved.
No Nestle–or United Colors of Benetton–for you.

Duh, are these the Iranian citizens that we are constantly told we will alienate if we use military means against the Iranian nuclear sites?
The Muslims are in the forefront of this mindless activity. However, the liberals, all over the world, especially in the United States, are not far behind. Not to support Walmart, but the idiotic tirades against Walmart carried out by the mindless leftists in this country have just seen their logical extension in this activity.

Debbie, they keep saying the Jews run the world! Well, why do we keep hearing reports in the media of Israel’s leaders begging Hamas to call off the rocketing if they are so powerful? Its a good thing anti-Semites aren’t completely consistent – and are stupid to boot!

Bravo DS–and spot on. What idiots are these animals!

LOL that looks good on Benetton.

KrazyKafir on December 31, 2008 at 5:48 pm

Here’s what I don’t get. The leftist anti semites are the best allies of the Islamofacists. Yet, if the Islamofacists take over one of the first things they will do is to kill some of these leftists (Gays are regularly hung in Iran) while they take away rights such as freedom of speech and religion.
Either leftist = stupid or I am really missing something.

In my opinion, the only way to appease the Muslim terrorists and their supporters is to make as many martyrs out of them as we can.
The more we torture and kill them, the more they will be sexually satisfied and the more they will leave us alone and be occupied with their Virgins.
Sexual obsession, especially with 72 Virgins, can be exhausting.
Remember, Islam is the only major cult that is based on sexual gratification through mass-murder and suicide.
2009 should be the year of “Islamic Martyrs.”
Let us put them in the Guinness Book of Records.

RE : i_am_me
You raise the 64 K question ? Liberals = Stupid ?
It is not stupidity. It is ideology that motivates them. They hate our system which is based on capitalism ( freedom, private property etc. ). They will support any movement ( including
Islamo Fascism ) which will destroy this system.
It is kind of suicidal, but they are Liberals !
Logic has nothing to do with it.

Happy New Year, Debbie and everyone else here!!!
This gives lie to the claims that Iranians are pro-US, or anti-Mullah, as many apologists of theirs claim. I even doubt the claims of some who think a majority of them are closet apostates.
No, the Iranian people are as much our enemies as the Iranian government. We should provide them nukes – from above – just drop them after detonation 🙂

I never feel sorry for Muslims living in oppressive regimes. (I feel sorry for the Christians and Jews under these regimes.) For the Muslims, they get the barbaric government that they as barbarians deserve.
*Like I keep saying, we can’t say it’s a clash of civilizations because when you’re dealing with Muslims, you’re the only civilization involved.*
Also, it is not right when people talk about Muslims as living in the “Dark Ages.” The Early Middle Ages were far, far more advanced culturally than Muslims have EVER been. The monks kept Western Civilization alive from those CAUSING the problems of the Early Middle Ages–Muslims.

Debbie, No New Year’s Day post? May you have a prosperous and productive 2009. Keep up the great posts. You never pull punches, keep it that way. I appreciate the candor and tenacity in your posts as well as the great sense of humor. Continue to Rock in 2009!!

What are Muslims good at? Rioting,Destroying & creating havoc where ever they reside. Don’t you think we should let a few more million into our country? Europe proved that they can ruin a society in a blink of an eye.

Benettton, along with The Body Shop – is one of the most left wing businesses out there.

“Remember, there’s a reason his name was Einstein, not Al-Einawi.”
That’s precious! I will always remember that line and give you credit for it.

The comment about the clash of civilizations brought me to my knees with laughter and sadness! The comment is so dead on and that’s the funny and sad part. Their culture of death and hate permeates everything and they are trying to drag us back many centuries.
The line about Einstein is also spot on. I can’t remember many of the contributions made to the world at large by the Arab/Islamic World. Are there any that are positive and contribute to society? I’ll have to check all the Nobel Laureates and compare the ratio of Jew to Arab.

Why are you so againts Muslim’s?

Optimistic on January 7, 2009 at 6:52 am

Remember the people who are doing all these horrible things are called Extremists which is not allowed in Islam. Islam does not condome suicide bombings and killing innocent people. And for the record its not a cult but a religion, maybe you should all go do some research on Islam before you such horrible comments.

Gosh whoever wrote this article is a biased bitch!!!
