Iran's Aryan Obsession

Most people don't know that Iran's leader at the time was a big fan of Adolph Hitler. "Iran" - the name given to Persia in 1935 - was intended to connote a connection to the original Aryans. The "Aryans," you may recall, were a big hit in Germany. German scientists, when not trading the Arc of the Covenant back and forth with Dr. Indiana Jones, were using the pseudoscience of the time to prove - measuring noses, foreheads, and skull bumps - a racial linkage back to the original Aryans. Given the state of DNA technology today, this story would be funny if it weren't associated with the last major global conflict which destroyed much of human civilization and killed tens of millions of people.

Actually, Iran has always been the name of Iran. "Persia" simply asked the rest of the world to call it by its true name. Persia is the greek word for the country. Like "Germany" is the English word for Deutschland.

Aryan is a term abused by Hitler.

The word Aryan originally described an spiritually enlightened Zoroastrian monk. Iranian Kings considered themselves elevated, close to God; therefore, "Aryan."

Indeed, even the Bible points out some of these anointed kings, such a Cyrus. Isaiah 45.

The first use of the term Aryan as an actual genetic feature goes back to King Darius who makes reference to his Aryan heritage back in 500BC.

Why did Hitler use the concept of "Aryan"? I don't know but its funny how the word "Caucasian" actually refers to those from about the Caucasus mountains, currently in South Russia... just north of Iran. In fact, that region was a part of Iran, for its history, until the mid 1800's. So guess who's "Caucasian". Not "Anglo", but "Caucasian".

Please stop trying to say Iranians are trying to copy some college drop out named Hitler. Actually, Hitler re-iterated most of what Henry Ford wrote in "The International Jew". It was, after all, the collapsing world economies after the post automotive boom that fueled fascism and nationalism.

As a final thought, Hitler killed Semitic people. He moronically associated Semitic people with "Jew". Being Jewish is a religion. A person can have blond hair and be Jewish--I know a good friends! Anyway, Hitler was anti-semitic. That does not mean he ONLY killed Jews. That mean he killed Arabs. Many of them Jew. You can't "profile" a Jew. You CAN profile an Arab: Today the same Antisemitism continues in the world. Ironically, often from western rooted Jews living in Israel. Its a racial thing. Religion is just a tool. Chew on that one.

A VERY FANTASTIC EXPLAINATION OF THE ARYAN TRUE ORIGIN. I AM IMPRESSED TO SEE FINALLY PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING THE TRUTH. IRAN HAS ALLWAYS BEEN CALLED IRAN SINCE ITS INCEPTION SOME 5000 YEARS AGO FIRST BY THE "PISHDADIAN" DYNESTY OF IRAN. GOD BLESS THE TRUE ARYAN PEOPLE OF IRAN, GOD BLESS THE JEWS WHO WERE AND STILL ARE THE TRUE FRIEND OF IRAN.
