A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Are You Muslim , Iranian, or Persian…Which Is It?

Posted by Mark on March 15, 2007

So Iranians are outraged by the movie ‘300’. Uh….all together now- WAHHHHHH!

The hit American movie 300 has angered Iranians who say the Greeks-vs-Persians action flick insults their ancient culture and provokes animosity against Iran.

“Hollywood declares war on Iranians,” blared a headline in Tuesday’s edition of the independent Ayende-No newspaper.

The movie, which raked in $70 million in its opening weekend, is based on a comic-book fantasy version of the battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C., in which a force of 300 Spartans held off a massive Persian army at a mountain pass in Greece for three days.

One slight problem. Iranians conveniently FORGET that the battle of Thermopylae takes place 1000 years before MOHAMMED’S BIRTH. So why the outrage? Muslims are steadfast in their belief that Islam and Sharia law constitutes their entire existence, to put it bluntly, they don’t recognize any history prior to his birth.

“It is a new effort to slander the Iranian people and civilization before world public opinion at a time of increasing American threats against Iran,” it said.

Oh….shut your Arab pieholes!

Persia existed before and after Mohammed. Iran as a nation, with it’s current boundaries…didn’t exist until 1935.

  1. The problem is Iran does not see itself as Arab, but Pershian. Still muslim, but Iran has a strange mix of culture that integrates the two. I still find it funny that History upsets them, when they love to rewrite it at will.

    It’s worse and more complicated than that. They roll out there outrage as a matter of convenience. Currently, 50% of the population is Non-Persian:http://zope06.v.servelocity.net/hjs/sections/middleeast/2005/document.2005-11-27.8841263680

    So, if the other 50 percent claim to be true Persians…then they should let go of their Muslim outrage, their Iranian outrage, and their pretense of ‘Arab brotherhood’. Stop supporting and funding Hamas and Al Qaeda and Syria and Name An Arab State.

    Reminds me of the big stink the Jews made over The Passion of the Christ…… a fabulous movie by the way. I cried through most of it.

    you are utterly wrong.

    iran has existed as a country for thousands of years.

    in 1935 it just had a name change. iran stands for land of arians because iran is mostly an arian country in constrast to the arab countries.

    most iranians are persians. there are very few arabs in iran.

    iranians are aryan. check it out at wikipedia.org

    iranians dont have much arab culture. so this is not true either. most of the things that are common which is not much has been stolen from the arabs.

    persians saved the jews from babylon.

    ….and most persians dont like arabs.

    so read these facts before you post like this containing mostly incorrect information.
