Hi Forum, I wanted to discuss something with you guys, I will try my best to shorten it as much as possible but please read it, It will Enlighten you about many things you wondered about Iran
I'm from Iran, I'm sure; now all of you thinking about bad things about my Government, and you have right to do so, but this doesn't mean we (Iranians) are bad as well, Forces of good always win in fairy tails but its not like that in real life, we lost to our government over and over, Haven't you heard about our protests? and died/caught protesters? Our government is cunning, and its not a rabble of Terrorists,Its something much stronger and Complicated, all of our country is infested with hidden agents(they called "Basij"), you don't know who they are... and they report everything which is against the government, no Activities ever made against the government because all of them failed
but we were not like this, We have one of the greatest Histories in the world, we grew the roots of what we call "Democracy" today, in 530 BC the Persian King(shah) Cyrus(Kourosh) the Great Announced that no Government can have any effect on normal behavior of people thus Creating a freedom belief which lasts even today and is Implemented in modern countries
There are History books of Persian Empire(Persia) and there are stories written according to them by just adding some legend into it, I knew the story of Prince of Persia(the movie) 7 years ago, when I bought its story book from a Local bookstore, what you have seen in the prince of Persia the movie is just a small taste of our Culture and Beauty of our women (but our women MUST wear Islamic Clothes like scarf and etc.. so their beauty is hidden and no one outside of the world is aware of it), the ruthlessness of our last Government(the one before Islamic Republic) caused this to happen, they are to blame
The only Logical Religion in the world Is the old Persian Religion called "Mehr", also called "Mithra", its called Aien Mehr in our language(aien means Religion) the Religion spread to India, Anatolia, Armenian Empire, and Sarmatia
but all of them changed their Religion after a while, Indians changed to many other religions, Anatolia Eliminated by roman empire and roman empire accepted Christianity, Armenian Empire also accepted Christianity and Sarmatia got Eliminated by Russians,and we forced to change to Islam by Arabs, the Religion is a myth now and there are so few left who follow it, how pity..
