: The Last Frontier of Greatness
The vast land of
was once inhabited by a relatively small number of indigenous people.
These "Indians" had lived throughout the land for thousands of
years, and they will always remain the true fathers of

Later, more European immigrants came, and American settlement finally
outgrew the Indian fathers.

In many ways,

"the best days are ahead." Like the ancient Persian Empire once

Like the Persians who were the first world managers and the most tolerant

Babylonian captivity, financed the reestablishment of their nation, and

Unfortunately, tragedy reigns in the land of the old Persians. The
remnants of great Persian Empire were swallowed up by the Muslim hordes of

spirit. Zoroastrianism, the original Iranian religion, was not an
effective barrier against the radical, murderous religion from the

today. The Persian renaissance lies in the spirit of the Iranians
themselves. This spirit alone can overcome Islam.
Islam is a stultifying, iron cowl. Today, after 1400 years, Islam is again
the greatest threat to existence of the free world and the civilization of
Christianity. True Muslims are a liability to all countries that
host them. Persians underestimated the destructive power of Islam,
must not do this time.
It was apparent on September 11, 2001 that Americans had already
underestimated the fury of Islamic madness. There must be no
weakness in American resolve now.
That day also proved as never before that ordinary people can do
extraordinary things. Ordinary people became heroes in care and

sacrifices to achieve positive change.

A Pakistani newspaper allegedly offered a reward to anyone who killed an
American, any American. So, an Australian dentist wrote the following:
Let everyone know what an American is so he'll know when he has found one.
An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish,
Polish, Russian or Greek or Persian.
An American is forever a Comanche, a Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho,
Apache, Seminole or any of the people known as Native Americans. An
American might also be a Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or even a Muslim-who
has learned to put his religion in its proper place.
So try to kill an American. Hitler tried. So did General Tojo, Stalin, and
Mao Ze-Dong. Americans are not a particular people from a particular
place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone
who holds to that spirit, anywhere, is an American. Americans have defined
