“Another reader wrote on the website: “For us who were listening on the radio, whenever Morsy said ‘Syria’, the Persian translator, who did not have the required integrity, translated it as ‘Bahrain’!!”

Bahrain is not a country, it is a militarily Sunni occupied province of Iran.

Really? Maybe Shia is occupying Iran. You used to be Zoroastrians before the Shia came in and forced conversion on those they did not kill like Islam did about everywhere and still does now.

Our media sure was quiet about the whole crushed revolt in Bahrain. The oil sheiks own our media. Our foreign policy is a disaster. We're helping the muslim brotherhood/al quaeda take over the rest of the middle east but defending the Saudis who are arguably even bigger islamorascists.

We need to wake up about who the enemy is. It is islam - the particular flavor of islam doesn't matter - it all still tastes like s**t.

well, Bahrain used to be part of Greater iran. And also 70% of the population are Shia.

But good point about 'Islam occupying Iran' --> more Iranis will realise the illogic of this as they fight their war with the Sunnis.

The other really bizarre bit about that idiot making that comment is that s/he is calling itself “Kermanshahikurd”.

Kurds are predominantly Sunni, whether in Iranian provinces or outside.

Kermanshahi-Kurds are still predominately Kurds but Shia, though, comparatively, only represent a minority officially Shia population, among Kurds in general.

Ultimately, they are KURDS & Iranic, regardless of Islamic denomination or general religious belief.

That seems to escape that commentator, and clearly suggests how convoluted matters have become, even among some major ethnic grps.

Only goes to demonstrate how the shite Islamic mullahs & their minions, like the Safavid & Qajars before them, have actively tried & try to drive a wedge between various Iranians. And, their efforts don’t stop with their Shia sh*t either..

Life used to be simpler before Shite hit the fan..

Me thinks Israel should now conquer & convert everyone in Iran to Judaism...

We must remember that not so very long ago, Iran was ruled by the Shaw. He was western leaning, their country prospered in a relative perspective. Now the Mullahs have moved them back to 700 AD.

I watched and cheered the Iranians during the #Iran Election phase a few years ago. Consequences of that outburst? A lot of bright young people lost their lives.

Iranian Mullahs are vile, hate filled, evil vermin. And unfortunately our would be ruler who inhabits 1600 Penn. Ave. supports them against We the People.

Thanks for the perspective.

Not long ago Iran was a nation that worked openly with the US. Hard to imagine a nation growing out of Persian culture, but conquered by Islam, could slip so far into the cesspool.

The evil called Islam, makes all their neighbors crazy. That is, those who are not conquered by Islam.

Obozo wants to take us down the same path. The very idea that he would have 20,000 Muslims involved with the Dem National Convention. Unfortunately the press largely ignored that.

Another perspective:

We really won’t know or have any real proof of what the majority of Iranians in Iran are or will be, until the mullahs & their lackeys/minions are killed or permanently gone from Iran. And, they will be, sooner or later.

Thereafter will be the only time Iranians in Iran will be able to CHOOSE of their own volition.

But, I can tell you for sure that the longer the mullahs et al stay in Iran, the less Iranians will be inherently moslems (shia in particular).

Iran was much more of a religious, shia, moslem country especially *inwardly* during the late-Shah than it is now.

The new generations in Iran, since the mullahs regime & since the Shah, have had the opportunity to live under a TRUE Islamic regime, experience, and also via the internet & otherwise do research into their pre-Islamic past.

They are much more discerning than they were during, let’s say, my generation under the Shah. My generation & just the previous one did not experience Islam it is full “glory” so to speak. We experienced a type of benevolent, kind, UNreal (shia) Islam, which was make-believe.

Most don’t realize, but there is also another unspoken tradition/rule for the *Average* Iranian, part of its ongoing culture from long ago, about faith or religious belief, that faith is & should be held privately, whatever it may be. One does not flaunt or impose it.

You may defend it if absolutely required, but you do not impose it on others. Even the pre-Islamic Sassanid Empire were aware & never went as far as the mullahs.

The fact that the Mullahs’ regime have deliberately dictated & enforced religious beliefs is UNacceptable, goes against the well-embedded, pre-Islamic culture & tradition, which still hold very strong grounds even after so many centuries of foreign invasions & instability in Iran.

Cyrus knew that repression was the least desirable method of conquest. He preferred to leave the culture intact and allowed religious freedom.

He freed the Jews from Babylonian captivity and helped rebuilt the temple.

Yes, Persian tradition flies totally in the face of Islam.

Is Islam is based on lies, deception, conquest and destruction. It is the religion of death, not life.
