I am an amateur ranter and this is my amateur take on all of us.It,s late & I,m tired and was short staffed today at office so if I suk, Parden my french
Yes, We are as a whole under Apartheid by Regime compare to the greater Islamic Ommah(A cash cow) but no I can,t blame IRI for all these.Some of it, is Us & Us only.
If Cyrus was alive today, Would He disown or commend our nationhood? or as Americans call it “state of the union”.
The Proud Arabia,s(Saudis nowadays) Ideals of Inseption as a Nation were the Islamic Shariaat and Unwavering pride in their Arabic heritage and social rules which has been with them and protected and pampered heroically.I respect & commend Arabs as a proud culture who preserved and stood guard for their Arab Identity against Turkish Ottomans,Mongol nomads,British forces and never backed off an inch of their culture & language, So today they can proudly call themselves Arabs. . America,s foundation was based on the principles of “God, Liberty and pursuit of happiness”.America is still called the “Land of the free and home of the Brave”. India,s inseption after Buda and Aryan teachings were founded upon her unwavered Hindism and distinct social system, so it can still be called proudly as Hindustan or Hindi or the land of Hindus.And a whole host of nations such as Greeks,Spanish,Ottoman Turkish,Russia and China are among the Proud nations who have held on to the original Theme and Ideas that created the base for their foundation as a nation.
With all due respect ,Can we Iranians call ourselves Irani as it was intended by the Original Founder of our “nation state” Cyrus of Anshan?
Now before you drop me all your routin Dubai type “Cho Iran mabashad tan…….” phrases ,think about it realy…Except Religion which is a sacred issue and I don,t think ,can even be on the Agenda I put the question to you to pick any other item on Cyrus list and check for yourself if we pass the test. I will save you from a boring long essays on virtues of an deserving Iranian..I will even save you from the old boring (and some times called racist by some folks) subject of Arabic alphabet & language rule over Farsi(even the name corrupted aka Parsi). But I will put to you the social values that old Iran held dear and we don,t.
1A-A nation who survives in her own land as “strangers”.some how Ignorant and some how quiet to her past,heritage,shared memory and fails to relay the message of Iran to her kids.Nowadays Kids probably know more about Darius the singer than King Darius….You would think that Kids outside Iran are better off on this Item, but the answer is a resounding no,,,They are even worse…How come? there is no IRI here!..
1-Role of Women in Society.We are a nation of Gender apartheid.The Vice Commander of the Sassanis Army which conquered Arab Yemenites was Ciruteh the Daughter of Ghobad cousin of King Shahpoor.
2-We are Quiet and passive toward Religious Apartheid.Sunni,Bahaii,, Zartoshti, Christianity, Jew(give me a break about Zionists…we know who you mean) .None can function in society as normal as a shia(Me) .
3-Lies , “Taghieh” and unsincere greetings.and we even dignify our lies as “maslehati” as a norm in general public.We have changed from a nation of straight talkers who put a grand value on Truth in Ancient times per historians ,,to a nation of ?
4-A nation in general Ignorant or quiet to cruelty & Injustice around her in her own land “So what they hang a few arazel o obash,,hagheshooneh” or thousands dead in 1988 as “”ina hameh az monafeghineh rajavi boodand, taghsireh khodeshoon bood raftan ba rajavi khaen””.I won,t even get into the rest of this…Yet historians say that Iranian in ancient times put a huge value on human life and Justice especialy for their countrymen.
5-Polluting the land, air and rivers even in “sizdeh beh dar” which is so Ironic.Ancient Iranians did not even wash their hands in Rivers,Bury their dead in the soil as not to pollute the environment.
So for all define and purpose we are left with a nutshell of our original theme.Can we atleast freez the name Iran in a mumify state until we figure out what to do about it. Meanwhile we can use a proper name that IR has chosen for us recently that fits the bill perfectly”keshvareh jomhooryeh eslami” and no I,m not being sarchastic, realy! or ghajars Shahs who called it”mamalekeh mahrooseh” or may be “United States of ……..”…my brain is dead…will fill up the blanks another day…
