"A number of Iranians believe that what we hear about great Islamic civilization is in fact the Iranian rich heritage captured and redistributed by Arabs who lived in nomadic tribes of Arabia at the advent of Islam."
I am currently reading a book 'Saudi Arabia in the 19th Century' written by R. Bayly Winder. Throughout, it's one raiding party after another, one tribe pillaging the other tribe, cutting down their date palms, taking the women and children captive, riding off with 'booty' and total lawlessnes and mayhem! The saudi arabs were throughout history and still remain, a parasitic scourge upon the planet. I am not surprised they were 'inspired' to stitch together a 'religion' from cultured peoples around them. They needed the sanction of an 'allah' to continue their destructive, parasitic culture.
There is only one hope for muslims. The indigenous peoples who remain in their lands, that were forced into conversion to islam must demand seperation of 'church' from state. Only Democracy will save them.
What do the clerics fear the most? Why public hangings and stonings, why arrest a four-year old child? Why hang a teenage girl?
THE CLERICS FEAR THEY ARE LOSING CONTROL.
Please never forget to tell the world that PERSIANS are not arabs.
