An American web site (CafePress) is offering T-shirts, baby clothes, mugs and teddy bears with "Nuke Iran" logos. If you have the time, please write to them and tell them what you think...This is particularly distressing. I think we need to act to stop such ugly displays. It doesn't matter what you think of the Iranian nuclear crisis and/or the American response. It is beyond question that 'nuking' by the US is both a terrible strategic mistake and a humanitarian disaster.
Although CafePress may not be responsible for the design itself, they are still accountable for (at least providing the means for) spreading such despiteful items and hateful ideas. I think it is imperative on all those with a loving feeling about the people or even the land of Iran and neighboring regions to do the least they could to stop the spread of such venomous ideas.
I wrote the following e-mail to the CafePress who provide the venue for individual sellers to sell their designs. If you don't have the time to compose an email yourself, I suggest that you use this text as a template or just copy-past and send it to the addresses listed below. Don't forget to sign at the bottom, and spread the word!!

Subject: Nuke EM' Design
I am writing to draw your attention to the items with the Nuke EM' logo and a nuclear mushroom cloud on a map of Iran, on display on your web site at the following URL:
and to express my horror and disgust to see your online store is selling or providing the venue for selling such a clearly inhumane and hateful design that glorifies human death and destruction. This design not only spreads support for a distressing threat to the Iranian lives and others living in a wide region, it is a disgrace to the American dignity and just support of freedoms around the world. I feel sad that I need to remind anyone in the 21st century that "Nuking" a country is not a matter of passing entertainment, but an act of mass destruction in which millions of lives are directly affected with deadly results.
I strongly urge your executives to act sensibly and take the items with this design off your online shopping windows immediately and unconditionally.
