  • My interests in other cultures

    Having a friend in another country, is like having a home there... So I would like to have a home everywhere. :)

    However, since it's my dream to live in the US and especially Boston, for the love I have for Red Sox and the Patriots, I hope to meet some Bostonians here... :D

    But all are welcome...

  • Something to tell the world!

    Iran has never been an Arabic country and never will be! Iranian people have very strong ties to their history, culture and language, which are distinctively Persian. We are very proud of our rich heritage, strongly admire our former King of Kings, especially Cyrus the Great and his legacy of introducing human rights in a political setting of the first humane and equal Federal World Empire. Another reason for which Persians dislike being mistakenly identified as Arabs is because Arab Islamic army conquered Persia in a very brutal way and forced us to change our religion, and customs by the edge of a sword. When Arabs conquered Persia they destroyed our style of Humane Federalism, Equal Rights, Freedom of speech and Freedom of religion and replaced those factors with central brutal government, prejudice and slavery. But Persian culture and rich history conquered them! Persia is the only country which didn’t become an Arab country (like Egypt, Babylonia, Assyria, Phoenicia and all the other ancient countries conquered and destroyed by Arabs) and in spite of centuries of invasions and foreign rule by Greeks, Arabs, Turks, Mongols etc. Persia has retained its own strong identity.

  • I wish people knew more about...

    I wish people knew more about Iran, our people, our culture and our country before being so judgmental, rude and racist towards us. It's true that we have the worst government, but they don't represent the people, and the beauties of our country.
