Snow, Rain, Heat, Gloom of Night? Check. Pork, Nudie, Or Zionist Propaganda? Not so much.

I’m seeing this make the rounds on the old blogosphere (from Nina Shea). The United Postal Service’s guidelines for what you can’t send to Islamic countries:

  • Obscene articles (prints, paintings, cards, films, videotapes, etc) and horror comics.
  • Any matter depicting nude or seminude persons, pornographic or sexual items, or nonauthorized political materials.
  • Bulk quantities of religious materials contrary to the Islamic faith. Items for the personal use of the addressee are permissible.
  • Pork or pork by-products.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s absurd to have to subjugate ourselves to other country’s governmental rules, when we are there blowing up said people?

I’m sure there’s a very reasonable, non-kowtowing reason for this policy. Right?
