The Raging Iranians: Iran Sends Forth its Hordes against 300



First 24. Then 300. It must be something about TV shows and movies with numbers in them that upsets Muslims. (They seem okay with 23 though)

Iran, proud member of the Religious of the Perpetually Enraged, is currently enraged over 300, a movie based on a graphic novel based on a famous historical event that portrays the Persian empire badly.

Now keep in mind that Iran is as much a Persian nationalist venture as it is a Muslim theocracy. Persians are a minority in Iran, oppressing the majority Azeris, but Persian language, culture and history dominates the Iranian population with the force of law and Persians have clear advantages when it comes to their careers, positions and social standing. Iran's ruling class therefore have as big a stake in Persian nationalism as they do in Islamic theocracy.

Considering the general lack of accomplishment by your average Middle-Eastern state, which would look more like Sub-Saharan Africa, if it wasn't for the oil and the dueling superpowers courting them for their support, they need to believe that they're the descendants and heirs of great civilizations.

Egypt postures as the descendants of the Empire of the Pharaohs, even though Arabs and Egyptians are separate peoples and the Arabs were simply mixed breed nomads who took over the region.

Lebanon, Jordan and Syria all appropriate the heritages of peoples who came before them and whom they uprooted and massacred and then massacred all over again during the rise of Islam. They appropriate the history of peoples they had nothing to do with. (This puts into perspective how Palestinian Arab spokeswoman Hannan Ashrawi could claim Jesus was a Palestinian.)

The Persians of Iran need to insist that they're the heirs of the Persian Empire and claim credit for its achievements, yet paradoxically modern day Islamic Iran ruthlessly persecutes the Zoroastrians and other remaining people who actually believe in the religions of the period of the Persian Empire.

This cognitive dissonance though does not interfere with Iran's outage over 300, claiming that it is made by Warner Brothers, "a studio owned by a rich Jew." (Iran has yet to enter the 20th and grasp the concept of a multinational corporation. For the record Time Warner\AOL's current CEO is Wayne Pace and as Adam Sandler puts it, Not Jewish.)


There's even an Iranian petition demanding an apology for Warner Brothers' "irresponsible, unethical and unscientific actions." The petition contends that, "its broadcast guarantees the violation of undeniable international legal rights."

"It is a proven scholarly fact that the Persian Empire in 480 B.C was the most magnificent and civilized empire," the petition goes on to say. Apparently its writer is unclear that magnificent and civilized are adjectives and scholars cannot prove that an empire was the most magnificent and civilized.

"While announcing our disgust at such a heresy, we demand an immediate historical review and quick apology from the responsible people." Or presumably beheadings will follow.

But it's the petition signatures that provide us with the delightful treasure trove of illiterate Muslim insanity prized by any true collector. Enjoy.

Mohamad - This is a lie through their teeth!

maherian - Iran hase old nation aroud the worldwith best people

(So that would be Japan, right?)

Saeed - This Film is not SQUARE (No, it's GROOVY)

Abi - after Borat Nothing surprises me, It is sad.

Wolfgang Lindner - In Germany, as well as many other European countries, thousands of people walked out of the theatres in the opening of this movie to show our protest against American’s obvious attempt to look down on cultural values of a nation! We are with you Persians! American’s are doing to you what they have done to us, the French, the Italians and even the Greeks who are supposedly the winning party in 300! (Well with the French and Italians on your side, plus the Greeks, how can you lose? Cheer up Iran, the Germans are rising... after they already paid for their tickets.)

Though they probably should have gotten that Harry Potter guy to help them fight, he's cool, wish I could meet him. But wow, I didn't know Iran is such a HORRIBLE place to be, that sucks for them though they should take better care of their magic rhinos though.

behnam - i am very angry as i can not say any thing (a delightful paradox)

Prof. Ali M. Oskoorouchi - I am not sure if I can hide the truth about unprofessional practice of Warner Bros., when questioned by our students in class

Parsa - We are opponent about producting and showing the "300" film ,because this film unreal and affrontive for Iranian .

Mahyar - My fellow Persians this battle depicted in the 300 did take place at a ratio of over 3:1. But that's not to say that the movie had the right to completely disregard the reasons for the formation of the empire and the impact of this unification. We have only ourselves to blame for allowing the Muslims to burn down our libraries and render the interpretations far from the truth. The best thing you can do to preserve what remains of out history is to find a Quran and burn it; trust me there's nothing more satisfying. As a former muslim I grew up in and around mosques and was brainwashed by the best. I am thankful everyday for having the vision and the ability to see beyond mohammads arab, selfish, and brutal ideals and sales pitch. Be Persian, Always!!!

Mahdi - shame on zionist movie maker company

Fathemeh Bahremand - If you are in need of true historical stories i can offer you free of charge

shakoor - nothing only all thing for money!!!!

RAMIN JAFARY - you son of the beach

SHIVA - KHAK TOO SARETOON!

(luckily a Western liberal comes to apologize for us all)

TomTom - Ohh My God... I don't know what can i say... JUST, I'm so sorry...

Is there anything the Iranians aren't angry about. Sheesh .. I'd be a little angry myself that something as harmless as a fairly great comic-book movie garnered that many petition signatures, but I can't be because they just make for such entertaining reading .. thanks for posting that

Sultan Knish said...

well the one thing they're not allowed to be angry about is their government

so the government knows it's important to create those 2 minutes of hate to channel their anger outward and reinforce all the plots being "spun" against them

James Biga said...

So let me get this straight. The Islamists disavow anything that happened prior to Mohammed as dark and evil times. Yet, when those very people are represented as dark and evil by a westerner those islamists go into a tizzy? Hypocritical as usual. At least they are consistant.

Sultan Knish said...

pretty much, when it's convenient then they disavow it, but when they need it to prop up their image as a great civilization they drag it out of the closet again

Irina Tsukerman said...

Wow. What a way to occupy people's minds with nonsense... and distract them from the real issues!

Just like any good dictatorship.

Sultan Knish said...

and of course dampen the public's enthusiasm for pop culture by appealing to ethnic nationalism, where islamism has failed

Bill Demidov said...

Persia was a faggot nation.
Their rulers were all fags and creeps and mental cripples who were not much better than the Roman emperors. Real looney tunes.
Herodotus tells us the straight scoop on it all.
Spartans didnt like them much, also called the Athenians boy lovers, which in point of fact they were.
Most Arabs today are pedophiles for that matter.

Lemon Lime Moon said...

Summing things up:
Movie is Great!
Spartans Rule, Persia Sucks. end of story.

Wilbur said...

The Spartans kicked major Butt on them there Persian flouncers.
Took thousands of them lily livered limpwristed Persian fancy pants to whoop on a couple of Spartans!
Makes me chuckle.

Spartans Rock.

Sultan Knish said...

and persians smell like spoiled cheese
