The History of
Islamic Terror in Iran
The aim of this letter is to
address the future generation as well as the current Iranian youth. The time to
keep silence has passed and the time to speak the truth has begun. As I write
this letter to you today, I am perplexed and frightened to think about what it
will be like when you are born. My mind is filled with uncertainty for your
future. My soul is filled with pain and agony of the unknown.
Today, Iran is under
the occupation of the most savage form of the Islamic butchers. These are the
descendants of the same Islamic butchers who conquered Persia 1400 years ago
with the sword of Islam. These are the same creatures that plundered and burned
Iran and took Iranian women as slaves to the desert of Arabia. Even now the
Islamic Republic is selling the Iranian women in Dubai and other Persian Gulf
We have been
witnessing the exact brutalities, savageries and barbarism for the past
twenty-six years by the Arab-Islamic fascists upon Iran as our forefathers saw
1400 years ago. There are thousands upon thousands of our countrymen spending
their youth in the Arab-Islamic dungeons. People's rights are being violated on
a daily basis in the name of the same Islamic barbarism of 1400 years ago. It is
ironic how history keeps repeating itself.
I am telling you
this story, partly because it is timely, partly because it is good to know the
lessons that history teaches us. Iran did not have to turn out as it did. Truth
and provocative ideas ought to be welcomed in our society. Yet, with provocative
ideas and opinions one must be ready to embrace death. As we have witnessed, the
Islamic zealots do not tolerate opinions contrary to their own. Euripides said
many years ago, “A slave is he who cannot speak his thoughts”.
However, death is
the last thing on my mind. Actions are needed to correct the past mistakes and
that starts with you. You, the born and unborn, must know what is happening in
your country and what has led us to where we are today. You must know this and
do everything in your power to save your country and her people.
So, this is a
message to you and to the future generation. We cannot allow the same ruthless
Islamic zealots who went on their roofs calling upon an Arab God, “Allah-o
Akbar,” to impose an Islamic revolution on our society, to control and
interpret our history. Also, we cannot allow the guardians of the status quo to
define and control our future.
You must adhere to
the wisdom of Zartushtra, who was a messenger of peace and life, eternal love
and wisdom. He was also a messenger of “Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good
Deeds”. History has shown if only Iranians had adhered to those “three”
principles, Iran would have remained eternally prosperous and exalted.
Let me tell you who
and what the Arabs were before turning Islamic and bringing the wrath of their
“Allah” upon Iranians and other nations. Before the advent of Islam, the
Arabs were idol worshipers. According
to Waqidi, the Arabs had 360 gods for each day of the year and the largest and
the main God was called “Allah.” They were pagan, a polytheistic culture.
One wonders how could a group of desert dweller nomads, who lacked culture and
civilization, possibly attack an old Empire and advance so quickly!
dynasty, despite being a great and powerful Iranian dynasty had become extremely
corrupt and very unstable towards the end. Four centuries of theocratic
oppression of different religious groups, suppression of the peasants and lack
of tolerance had caught up with the dynasty. The decay and abandonment and
growth are part of the circle of evolution and also the birth of enlightenment
and blossoms of the truth. The rule of nature dictates to us that anything that
does not change with time stagnates and degenerates.
While the Sassanid
dynasty was in a chaotic and frenzied stage, across the desert a new cult was
forming and foaming with fever and zealousness. Being deprived most of their
lives from earthly pleasures and splendor and for centuries looking toward the
Persians and the Romans with certain awe, envy and fear, the Arabs were uniting
under the new flag of Islam and marching toward the Persian lands and later the
King Yazdgird III,
with the help of the Commander of Persian forces Rostam Farokhzad, became the
last King of the Sassanids. It fell to him to pay for the sins of his
forefathers. Before the war broke out with the Arabs, his vanity and
overconfidence, as shown by Iranian rulers and nobles time and again, brought
disaster to the nation. He was an inexperienced and arrogant ruler.
Rostam Farokhzad, a
very courageous and brilliant Persian commander, foresaw the consequences.
Yazdgird, sitting on the throne of the Aryan Empires, thought that the Iranian
Army, like the previous Armies was invincible. Farokhzad knew that the time had
changed. These were not the same Arabs and his military was not the same
Rostam Farokhzad had
realized that these newly motivated Muslims were fearless, as the today's
suicide bombers in our era seem to be fearless and do not value human life. He
knew that his soldiers were thinking about how to survive a war, yet, the Arab
Army, similar to today's Islamic overzealous militants, were embracing death.
The Arabs did not fear death because of the promise of a better life after death
by “Allah”. He knew he couldn't possibly win this war and the best option
was a diplomatic one.
Nonetheless, the war
began and the Arab army under its ruthless commander, Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas
approached. The Persian Army was defeated in the decisive “Battle of Qadisiyah.”
Rostam Farokhzad, the courageous Iranian general was murdered and Yazdgird’s
last attempt to gather forces to counter attack fell short. He wandered around
the country for many years and it is told that he was slain in one of the
villages in northern Iran.
Just how decisive
was the “Battle of Qadisiyah”? Even though the “Battle of
Nahavand” was the
last war of the Arabs with the Persians in which Yazdgird’s Army was
completely defeated, the “Battle of Qadisiyah” had already sealed the fate
of the Sassanids Empire just as the “Battle of Yarmuk” had sealed the fate
of the Byzantine Empire in the West and was the start of a new chapter of the
Islamic world and Islamic Iran.
