The return of yellow armbands

Canada’s National Post reports on a new law mandating identification badges for religious minorities … in Iran:

According to the Post, Iran’s 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on their clothes. Christians would have to adorn red badges and Zoroastrians would be have to wear blue strips of cloth. To go into effect, the law would have to be approved by Iran’s supreme leader and highest authority, Ali Khamenei.

If this is true, it obviously hearkens back to this.

Update: The rush is on to verify the report.
Update 2: Is this what it’s going to take for people to see the threat Iran poses?
