My Saudi Valentine is like a [censored], [censored] rose that's newly sprung in June

Saudi Arabia's religious police have banned red roses ahead of Valentine's Day, forcing couples in the conservative Muslim nation to think of new ways to show their love.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has ordered florists and gift shop owners in the capital Riyadh to remove any items colored scarlet, which is widely seen as symbolizing love, newspapers said.

Update: Michelle Malkin suggests we fight Sharia by celebrating Valentine's Day and includes a roundup of anti -Valentine fevah from the usual suspects.
