Persians are a humiliated and disgrace peoples, who were forced to surrender the prophet of their people, its intelligence, its valour and their national identity in exchange for the inanity of arab cultural dictates - to become arab's punks!

Drought in Iran is Western Plot, Claims Iranian VP - Middle East-Israel National News 7/17/2012
Iranian Vice President Hassan Mousavi said Monday that the drought in southern Iran is part of a “soft war” launched against the Islamic Republic by the West, Fars news agency reported. “I am suspicious about the drought in the southern part of the country,” Mousavi, who also heads Iran’s cultural heritage and tourism organization, said at a ceremony to introduce the nation’s new chief of meteorological department.
“The world arrogance and colonist are influencing Iran’s climate conditions using technology... The drought is an acute issue and soft war is completely evident... This level of drought is not normal.” Iran has experienced several droughts in recent years, especially in the south where it was hit in recent weeks by violent sand storms that engulfed several cities, noted AFP.
Last year, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Western countries of devising plans to “cause drought” in Iran, adding that “European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump” their water on their continent.
The Palestinian question is no different than aboriginal questions all over the world. Every serious person knows it's wrong and every serious person knows its far too late to do anything about it ... but all progress and development is being stalled because of the deliberately ignorant who claim it wasn't wrong in the first palce and the deliberately dense who claim that it can be changed back to the way it was before.
It's not merely too late to change the situation to the "way it was before" – this, rather, is not even an option in discussion. What preceded the state of Israel, as you surely know, was British rule; before that - Ottoman; and so on in a long line of mostly imperial succession. I don't know of any movement that suggests the revival of any of the different political entities that "were before", except - of course – for Zionism.
What you seem to be alluding to as the natural and now irretrievable political arrangement of the region – a Palestinian state instead of the Jewish one – is in fact a complete novelty, and historically quite an awkward notion, surely not fated: there would never have been a "Palestinian nation" in the first place if not for the Jewish claims that loosely united belligerent Arabic clans of no national awareness or territorial commitment. Even the very name "Palestine" is, in a way, owed to the Jews: it was in the aftermath of their failed revolt against the Roman Empire that the latter gave the above mentioned title to the province formerly known as Judea - hundreds of years before the arrival of the Arab conquerors - an appellation that remained strictly geographical with no ethnic connotation until the 20th century.
You are correct in this: the issue at hand is that of an indigenous people fighting for its land; you are mistaken in this: it's not too late for the reversal of the unfortunate legacy of Empire. Indeed, the process has already begun: the aboriginal people is returning home. The Arabs, for that matter, are welcome to do the same.
