They never give it up, do they?
First it was Alexander, then '300' . They never show Persians in a good light.
They never make a movie about Cyrus's triumphant entry to Babylon. They never create
a movie about How Persians dominated most of Greek islands without war, and just with
Diplomacy. They never make a movie about How Darius build the suez canal, 2000 years
before there ever was such canal.
Granted this movie is going to be forgotten too, in a couple of months. But it's their triumphalism
and our modesty and humility in the face of a propaganda campaign that makes me angry.
That's the real reason why Persians are understandably angry. They're about 100 years late, in that anger, or perhaps 400 years, depending how you determine the exact time, that our falling behind, started. But they are angry and they have signed this petition AND this one with their broken english from all parts of the world to register their anger.
The Battle of Thermopolayee was a stupid act by Spartans. What did they expect?
Did they expect that Persians would offer their necks to their enemies so that
they can chop it off ? Of course the Persian army killed all of them!
That being said, Xerxes, (خشایار؟ ) was an incompetent idiot, Persia lost Egypt too under his reign.
China has waken up after a couple of centuries of bad luck !
India boasts about being a super power, openly enriches uranium and builds and tests
a nuclear weapon, while is stuck in a land dispute with its nuclear powered neighbor.
and Iran, that oldest of multi-national empires and world powers, what does she get ?
At one time, the biggest Philosophers and scientists were Razi, Aveecina and Farabi.
All three were PERSIAN. Not arab, not Muslim Persian.
(Do we call Isac Newton a Catholic Scientist? Or do we call him a British Scientist ? )
Razi was born in Ray a small city near where Tehran is now, Farabi was born in Farab,
solidly in Iranian territory, and Aveecina was born in North East of Iran and is burried
Kharizmi's parents were born in Khawrizm which is also in North East of Iran.
When we Iranians are going to wake up?
When are we going to realize, they are taking every thing away from us?
What Occupied Islands ? Iran withdrew from the Islands to leave the matter as a "status quo" It was a "time out" declared, no one was supposed to flag the islands. Then the Sheikh of
Sharjah, moved in. It was a violation of "Status quo" Since the Sheikh of Sharjah, violated the
status quo, he and his companions were forced out.
I am certainly not going to loose sleep over that.
I'd say Iran Liberated the Islands from Occupation of Arabs.
So they are "Liberated Islands"
Persian Gulf, was called Persian Gulf, before Arabs could have any appreciable presence.
'300' Spartans, were slaughtered by the Persian Army.
I'd say Fine By me.
To my Arab friends: We are not your problem, and we are not the solution either.
Get off of our back !
