Islam's Victimization of Iran
July 1, 2009
Some 1400 years ago, across the arid Arabian Peninsula roamed disparate
savage tribes in a constant state of war with one another. Acts of
violence, pillage and slave trading were their way of life. Out of
necessity and expediency, they refrained from active warfare for only
one month a year—the month of Moharam (the forbidden month). Even during
this lull in active warfare, the various tribes rearmed and prepared for
the next eleven months of bloodletting. Violence of the worst kind and
form was their way of life.
Although the ongoing warfare inflicted great suffering and death, it
remained the major means of livelihood for the survivors in the harsh
desert that sustained little other than the hardy goats, desert-suited
camels and the indispensable vehicles of war—horses.
Violent death ruled. The victor had a reprieve for a time ‘til he became
Then there was a new summons. An orphan from the tribe of Quraish by the
name of Muhammad, the son of the late Abdullah, offered the savages a
deal they couldn’t refuse. He said that they should stop worshiping all
the various idols in the idolatry of Mecca and turn to the one and only
god, Allah, one of their numerous idols. He said it is Allah who is the
creator of the universe and Allah has another world of immense bounty
and pleasure. He promised the savages that by embracing Allah, banding
together and carrying out his commands they assure themselves of great
worldly spoils as well as eternal admission to a glorious paradise.
Muhammad promised further that instead of warring against one another,
as they have done for millennia, for pittance of reward, they could
venture out beyond the impoverished desert into a world of great wealth
and bounties. Muhammad motivated his rapidly growing body of followers
to rally around him by proclaiming, (1) if they are victorious they will
have the treasures of the infidels as well as their women and children
as slaves to hold or sell, (2) if the faithful kill the infidels in
doing the work of Allah, further reward awaits them in paradise and, (3)
in the unlikely event that they are killed, they find themselves in
Allah’s glorious paradise for an eternal life of joy and bliss.
The outlandish, frequently confused and often contradictory incoherent
rhetoric of Muhammad made the less gullible few question his sanity.
They dismissed him as, "Insane Poet.” Yet, the generality of the savages
found in him their savior—the one who would lead them to all the good in
this world and the next. It was a win-win proposition for them. Win and
you are rewarded handsomely, lose your life, and you go directly to
heaven. How could they refuse?
Muhammad preached that earthly life is a small price to pay for eternal
life. It is the next life that the faithful should seek. Hence, Islam
can rightfully be considered a cult of death, not life. It will never
run out of volunteers to sacrifice their life until Islam itself
Gladly placing their lives on the line, sword in hand, on the steed of
greed, the well-adapted killers of Arabia sallied outward under the
banner of Islam. In a space of a few centuries, these savages rampaged
through much of the civilized world and inflicted death and great
destruction in their path.
An early victim of these marauding conquerors was Persia—Iran—arguably
one of the greatest civilizations known to humanity. It was the ancient
Iranians who gave humanity its first
charter of human rights,
championed the ideals of tolerance, justice and autonomy of the diverse
peoples in their vast empire. Islam systematically destroyed that
civilization and, over time, tried its utmost to replace it with a
barbaric way of thinking and behaving. Millions of Iranians resisted the
savagery and paid with their lives. Some were forced to live under
jazyyeh—pole tax levied on non-Muslims.
Others lost their identity and heritage and embraced the ways of their
new rulers. It is this band of savages, an oppressive tyrannical
minority that is presently ruling Iran. Yet, even under the rule of
Islamofascism, the overwhelming majority of Iranians of various
ethnicity and religion, remain faithful to their ancient creed—a creed
that was given to the world by Zoroaster. The faith of Zoroaster, based
on the triad of Good Thoughts, Good Speech and Good Deed, constituted
the standard of life for the Persian. Other teachings of the faith of
Zoroaster, arguably the most ancient divine religion, have inspired the
teachings of other faiths.
The influence of Zoroastrianism in Judaism, for instance, is so
compelling that some religious scholars have called Judaism, "Moses
through Zoroastrian eyes.” Furthermore, it was during the rule of the
Zoroastrian kings of Persia that the Old Testament was for the first
time recorded in written form. Teachings such as Good and Evil, Heaven
and Hell, Resurrection, and Paradise derive from the Faith of Zoroaster.
In reality, both Judaism and Christianity have their roots in
W.Y. Evans-Wentz, an Oxford professor, one of the world’s leading
authorities on Eastern mysticism and religion, contends, "Without
Zarathustra there would be no Christ.”The
spiritual bond between the faith of Zoroaster and Christianity is
further evidenced by the travel of the
three Zoroastrian Magi
who anticipated the birth of the infant Jesus and traveled from Iran to
celebrate his birth.
It is evident that Islam succeeded in destroying the magnificent Persian
civilization, or at least stifled it to a great extent. Presently, once
again with renewed vigor, Islam is aiming to destroy another
civilization—the Judeo-Christian civilization, a civilization that
constitutes a living falsification of the Islamic primitive and backward
creed. Islamofascism presents a clear and present danger, not only to
Western civilization, but to the entire civilized world as is evidenced
by the ruling Islamists in Iran.
today, on the one hand, has the potential of rapidly becoming a nuclear
state and becoming a formidable adversary that would not settle for
anything less than the total subjugation of the free world. On the other
hand, in Iran’s people and culture is a genuine potential for replacing
the doomsday-bent Mullahcracy and making Iran the free world’s
staunchest partner in the Islamic world.
The overwhelming majority of Iranians of today stand shoulder to
shoulder with the civilized free people of the world to defeat
Islamofascism. The Iranians have not forgotten their heritage. They have
pride in their ancient creed of light—that of
