  • A bit of Iranian history

    Just so every one knows, Iran has a colorful history tied in with Adolf Hitler. It was formerly known as Persia, but after Hitler allied with the Persians, they became Iran, which is the local way to say "Aryan." Much of the Arab world's hatred for the jews goes back to biblical times, but more recently it was resparked by Hitler in the earlier part of the 1900s.

    "The shah became a stalwart admirer of Hitler, Nazism and the concept of the Aryan master race. He also sought the Nazis’ help in reducing British petro-political domination.

    So intense was the shah’s identification with the Third Reich that in 1935 he renamed his ancient country “Iran,” which in Farsi means Aryan and refers to the Proto-Indo-European lineage that Nazi racial theorists and Persian ethnologists cherished.

    The idea for the name change was suggested by the Iranian ambassador to Germany, who came under the influence of Hitler’s trusted banker Hjalmar Schacht. From that point, all Iranians were constantly reminded that their country shared a bond with the Nazi regime."

    "He [The Mufti] called upon all Muslims to 'kill the Jews wherever you see them.' In Tehran’s marketplace, it was common to see placards that declared, “In heaven, Allah is your master. On Earth, it is Adolf Hitler.”

    Scary stuff. This is why just last year, the Iranian president publicly denied that the holocaust ever existed. Everyone should read this fascinating article to learn a little more about the sentiment we are dealing with. It is a real eye opener.

      Great 'news' from the JTA here. They may as well have written the headline 'Nazi party alive and well in Iran' followed by an open call to arms.

      Get ready for the dying breath of the neocons, because this is what it's going to look like.

        "Iran seen to have worked with Nazis"

        The former Shah of Iran, anyway. The one who was overthrown. Kind of a needlessly inflammatory piece.

          I hear the Germans once worked with the Nazis as well. Maybe we shouldn't trust them, either.

              A bit of Etymology:

              In former ages, the names آryn and Persis were used to describe the region which is today known as the Iranian plateau. The earliest Iranian reference to the word (airya/arya/aryana etc), however, dates back to the Iranian prophet Zoroaster (est. anywhere between 1200 to 1800 BCE, according to Greek sources, as early as 6000 BCE[10][11] and is attested in non-Gathic Avestan; it appears as airya, meaning noble/spiritual/elevated; as airya dainhava (Yt.8.36, 52) meaning the "land of the Aryans" and as airyana vaejah, "the original land of the Aryans."[8].....

                I've always felt uneasy about France. They let the Nazis in with suspiciously little resistance.

                    I don't get it - why would Arabs buy into a "master race" of which they're not a part??

                      Because Nazi scientists believed they were related somehow. And the reason the US was behind the Shah was because Iran was playing BOTH sides of the fence. They were taking part in carrying it out AND offering safe passage to refugees who could cough up the cash.
