Iran Parliament Calls to Close Strait of Hormuz

Stop fundamentalism – An urgent legislation has been approved by the Iranian Parliament’s National Security Committee to encourage the Iranian government to close the straits of Hormuz to oil cargo headed for countries that are participating in the Iranian oil sanctions in Europe.

The proposal was signed by 100 members of the Islamic Parliament by Sunday, said a committee spokesman to reporters.

European countries allowed a six months wait period before a complete oil embargo against Iran went into effect yesterday. This was intended to give time to the Iranian regime to negotiate a favorable deal with the west regarding its nuclear enrichment program.  Many observers believed the Iranian nuclear program is in fact a clandestine weapons program.

Western countries and many Middle Eastern countries fear that Iran having a nuclear weapon will destabilize the region and spark a nuclear race.
