No Kosher Hotdogs for the Mullahs

Reader comment on item: Washington to Tehran: You Can't Come to My Birthday Party

Dr. Pipes,

There is an interesting sidebar to this story.

If all those devout Shiite Muslim Iranian diplomats were to turn up for the Fourth of July weenie roasts, what kind of hotdogs could they be served? Certainly not your standard American ballpark frank which contains prodigious amounts of pork! That would be a major diplomatic faux pas.

The alternative: Fill the diplomatic pouches with shipments of Hebrew National franks. But then what? Imagine the scandal back in Iran if it got out that Iranian diplomats were chowing down on anything made by a company called "Hebrew National", an obvious front for the Elders of Zion. Pity the poor diplomats. They would probably have to defect to the West just to avoid execution back home.

Who knows? Maybe that was Obama's secret plan all along.

Submitting....
