Iranian Mindset: God, Deep Humanity, Tolerance

The year 2012 raised many good questions about the West, and the difference between the barbarian world and the civilized world, and the difference between a human mindset and a barbarian mindset. Since the ancient time, Iranians believed that ‘those who don’t care about other humans and the human values (ie ‘those who have no sympathy for human pain’) are not humans and ‘the name of human they cannot retain’, and that’s why today’s Iranians ask: “Why are Westerners so selfish and so mean? Why do they live like animals, and don’t care about other humans and the human values, including sympathy, kindness, truth, goodness, etc?” Many don’t know why the Iranian people say such things, and why and how the Iranian mindset is different from the barbarian mindset or the Western mindset. As the wise Iranians say: “What Iranians say have a deep root in the Iranian culture. Since the ancient time, the Britons and the Europeans have had a barbarian mindset. The Britons and the Europeans were Human-eaters. They ate each other and drank human blood. But Iranians cared about the humanity, the truth, the goodness, the kindness, and other human values. And it’s a very big difference, that is still noticeable”. Unfortunately, most non-Iranians know nothing about the Iranian values and the Persian gifts to the mankind. As the wise Iranians say: “Many know nothing about Iran and the Religious Tolerance in Iran, because the West and puppet of the West systematically falsify the past, tell big lies, and destroy Iran’s image. Iran, as the Cradle of Civilization and the home of human values and modern religions, is the ancient land of tolerance and humanity. When the Europeans were eating humans, and when even the so-called civilized Romans loved the Gladiatorial Savagery and drinking human blood, and when the Arabs were eating locusts, were killing their daughters and were living in the Age of Ignorance and Savagery, Iranians were caring, talking, and writing about the humanity and the human values. And it’s very important”. But most non-Iranians know nothing about these issues. Recently, some asked us about the Iranian mindset. Such questions show that the good guys in all around the world want to know more about the hidden facts. Of course it’s obvious when you talk about the mindset of a nation, you talk about a very complicated subject. The civilized humans are not sheep, and you cannot claim that all of them think and behave in the same way. Diversity and different lifestyles, different thoughts, different views, different customs, etc are a clear sign of a civilized nation. As some say: “When you write about the mindset of a nation, it’s better that you write about the deep-rooted traditions, the deep-rooted values, and the common values among that nation”. And here, I try to write about some fundamental and deep-rooted traditions and values among Iranians, that some call it ‘the traditional values’ or the national values in Iran, and you can call it ‘the Iranian world view’, ‘the mentality of Iranians’, the Iranian values, or the Iranian mindset. Most people don’t know that Iran is the ancient land of human values and tolerance, mainly because the Ministry of Truth and the Orwellian West don’t allow people to know the truth. As the wise Iranians say: “The Mullahs and the Islamists, as the most anti-Iranian people in the world, are puppets of the West and hate Iran and Iranians. They clearly say that they are proud of the Arabic culture and hate the Iranian culture. They clearly say that they don’t care about the thousands of years of civilization in Iran. They just talk about the past 1400 years!, ie about ‘Iran after the Arab invasion’! But they even don’t tell the truth about the past 1400 years. They don’t talk about the Iranian culture and how Iranians lived, thought, and fought about the Arabs and others in the past 1400 years. They just praise the savage Arabs and those uncultured forces who tried to destroy Iran, Iranians, and the Iranian culture. In fact, there is no doubt that the Mullahs and the Islamists are the most anti-Iranian people in the world. They are Arabs, pro-Arabs, and puppets of the West. But if you want to know Iran and Iranians, you should forget the Mullahs, and should know the long history of Iran and Religious Tolerance in Iran”. Yah, “Tolerance” and “Religious Tolerance” in Persia has a long story. Many good books should be written about “Humanity” and “Tolerance” in Iran, and “Barbarism” and “Intolerance” in the West. The Ministry of Truth tells big lies about the West and the Cradle of Civilization (Iran). As the wise Iranians say: “When the Britons and Europeans were naked, savage Barbarians, who ate humans and drank human blood, Iranians were writing about many modern values, even politeness and vegetarianism! It’s what even the Greeks, from Plato to Xenophon, have confessed to it”. We will write more about the ancient Greece and the ancient Persia, but here lets focus on the humanity, tolerance, God, and Goodness in Persia. As some wise Iranians say: “Iranians have always cared about the humanity. As you know, humanity means : ‘kindness and sympathy towards others’, and the only nation that its motto is: ‘If you have no sympathy for human pain, the name of human you cannot retain’, is Iran. Since thousands of years ago, in the pre-Zoroastrian era, the Zoroastrian era, and the post-Zoroastrian era, Iranians cared about goodness, humanity, love and kindness. In the pre-Zoroastrian era, one of the main Iranian religions was Mithraism or ‘Kish-e Mehr’ that means ‘religion of love’. (Mehr means ‘love’, ‘sun’, etc). The main values in ‘Kish-e Mehr’ are the typical Iranian values, including truth, love, kindness, goodness, etc”. They also add: “Do you know about the relation between God and Good, and their Iranian roots? In Persian, Khoda means God. Khoda was pronounced Goda, and became God. In Persian, Khoob means Good. Khoob was pronounced Goob and became Good. But it’s not the whole story. In Persian, there is an important relation between Khoda (God) and Khod (the self), and also between Khobi (Goodness), and Khoda (God)”. In fact, it’s the base of “Iranian Mysticism” that finally became Sufism or Irfan. As some wise Iranians say: “The relation between Khoda (God) and Khod (Self) in Persia, is the base of Mysticism in all around the world. The ancient Persians and the Persian mystics talk about Khoda (God) and Khod (Self) and ‘annihilation of the self in God’ and ‘attaining union with God or becoming God’. It [can show you many things about] the individual and the godhead in Persia. The emphasis in Persian Mysticism is on a love in which the lover becomes annihilated in the beloved, or Khod (the self) becomes Khoda (God). And that’s why the Persian Sufis, from Bastami and Hallaj to today’s Arefs, say: ‘We all can try to be as good as God. We all can united with God’. They see God as the Good (Khoda as Khoob), and they love the Good (goodness). In fact, the Persians think that God is the symbol of Goodness, and that’s why they care about God that is the Good. The Persians (and Sufis/ Arefs) didn’t say that we are slaves of God; but they said that we are lovers of God, and God is a lover of us. In fact, the Persian relation with God and other humans was based on Love and Goodness”. In fact, for the Persians, God was, and still is, a synonym of “Good”, “Love”, or “Truth”, and it’s very important. As the witty Iranians say: “The Western barbarians are so ungrateful. When their civilization, and even their Good and God have Iranian roots , the Westerners are so ungrateful, and still behave like their Barbarian ancestors. In their barbaric culture, goodness, gratefulness, truthfulness, etc are meaningless. The human-eaters, that ate humans, can eat ‘shame’ and ‘humanity’, as well. And that’s why Westerners are such big liars and such ungrateful pigs, and many of them live like sheep”

As the wise Iranians say: “For Iranians, God, Good, love, kindness, human (Khod), sympathy, and the truth have always been synonym. The Persian Sufis called, and still call God ‘Truth’ (Hagh), and their ‘Ya Hagh’ (O Truth/ O God) is very famous. And that’s why today’s Iranians say: ‘If you live like a good guy, it’s not important that there is a God or there is not a God. If you live like a good guy, it’s not important that you are atheist, agnostic, Muslim, Jew, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, etc. If you live like a good guy, God is certainly with you and love you, because if God exists, God only cares about the truth, the goodness and other good values. And if God doesn’t care about the truth and the human values, it’s not God, but it’s Devil or Evil, and all good guys are its enemies’. Such modern views have a deep root in the Iranian culture”. Yah, and it can explain what we already wrote about God [3], but some could not understand it. When you are a good guy, it’s not important that God exists or God doesn’t exist. When you live like a good guy, you are happy, human, open-minded, and care about the truth, and if there is a God, it’s with you and loves you. When you are a good guy, you are a real human, not an animal, and it’s the main issue. And if God exists, but doesn’t care about truth, goodness, kindness, happiness, and other good things, it’s certainly Ahriman (Evil) as the ancient Iranians said, and we are certainly its enemy. Since the ancient time, the wise Iranians said such things. And it’s what people like Nietzsche could not understand it. As some wise Iranians say: “Nietzsche tried to know the ancient Persians and Zarathustra, but he could not understand the Persian religious tolerance and the Persian Mysticism. Nietzsche said: ‘God is dead’, and he thought it’s what even the ancient Persian said. But Nietzsche was ignorant, and when he said: ‘God is dead’ he meant ‘Good is dead; Goodness is dead; Good guys are dead’. But Iranians said: ‘If God is not Good, God is dead’. But if God is Good, Goodness, Love, or Truth, God is always alive and lives inside us’. It’s what Nietzsche could not understand it. Of course, some believe that Nietzsche truly said that ‘Western God is dead’, because Western God was god of intolerance, inhumanity, injustice, ignorance, tyranny, and other bad things”. They also add: “In the barbarian cultures and in the West, God was a synonym for ‘tyranny’, ‘dictator’ or ‘master’ who tries to kill, punish, and torture humans, aka his slaves. But Iranians saw God as Good, Love, or Truth”. It’s important, but unfortunately, most non-Iranians don’t know the Persian Mysticism or the Sufism, and don’t know that the first Sufis were followers of the Iranian culture and the ancient traditions in Iran. The Iranians Mystics or Sufis only cared about the truth, and that’s why many see them as good guys. We and many other Iranians care about Sufis or the ancient Iranians, only because they cared about the truth and the human values. As we said before, anyone, religious and irreligious, that cares about the truth, is a good guy, a real human, and a member of the tribe of the good guys. But what we say is like what the ancient Iranians said. Unfortunately, most people don’t know the great men of Persia. As some say: “Most people don’t know the famous Iranian Sufis, for instance, Abul Hassan Kharaghani (962?- 1033?), that lived in the 10th century. He, like other Iranian Mystics, was a good guy that cared about the truth and the Iranian values. Attar (1145?- 1221), the great Persian poet, wrote about Kharaghani and played the role of his biographer. Attar himself was a great Sufi that was beheaded by the invading Mongol army in 1221. Attar devoted a large part of his book Tazkeratul-Owliya (Biography of the Saints) about the personality, state and stories of Abul Hassan Kharaqani, because Kharaghani was a good guy who said: ‘When a human knocks your doors (and ask for your help), you should feed him and help him, and you should not ask about his religion or his race‘. Kharaqani said: ”I am neither a Sufi, nor a scientist, nor a pious. What if there were neither the Hell nor the Heaven; [At that time] we could see the real humans!’ Kharaqani said such things when the Europeans ate each other, and loved eating human flesh and human blood!”. It’s very important. In the recent years, even the BBC was forced to publish a short article about Kharaghani. They said: “Abul Hassan Kharaghani had this message at the entrance of his [school]: ‘Whoever enters my place, feed them without asking about their religion. Because if they were favor by God who saw them worthy of the gift of life, then they are certainly worthy of being fed at the house of Aboul Hassan’. At the house of Aboul Hassan, none is distinguished by their color of skin or their race. He respects all religions on an equal base. His thinking is service to human beings”[3] But unfortunately, most people don’t know the great men of Persia, and also the Persian culture and the Persian gifts to the mankind. Non-Iranians, in the best case, know a little about a small group of great Persians, including Cyrus the Great, Rumi (Molawi), Sadi, Hafiz, Ferdowsi, Khayam, Attar, Jami, etc. But many great men of Persia -people like Zoroaster, Mazdak, Mani, Kharaghani, Ansari, Bastami (Bayazid), Hallaj, and many others- are still unknown. As the wise Iranians say: “The West and the Ministry of Truth have always been the enemy of the cradle of civilization (Iran). They were so jealous of Iran and Iranians, and tried to falsify the past. But Iranians have always fought against the bad guys. People like Ferdowsi and Attar have always wrote about the great men of Persia and the Persian civilization”. Unfortunately, many great men of Persia are little-known. For instance, most people don’t know Kharaqani, Bastami, Hallaj, or Ansari. As some Iranians say: “Bayazid Bastami (805- 874) was among the first Persian Sufis after the Arab invasions. Bastami’s grandfather was a Zoroastrian. Bastami is regarded as being one of the most influential mystics due to the fact of how controversial he was at the time. Bastami said: ‘Don’t go to Mecca and turn around Kabeh; Come here and turn around us!’ But many can’t understand him. Kharaqani was one of the students of Bastami, who knew Persian Mysticism and played a major role in placing the concept of divine love at the core of Sufism. Bastami was one of the first to speak of ‘annihilation of the self in God’. Khajah Abdullah Ansari (1006- 1088) is another Iranian that was so open-minded. He was Kharaqani’s student. Ansari said: ‘If you can walk on the water, you are just a mote; If you can fly in the sky, you are just a fly!; But if you want to be somebody (ie a real human), you should have sympathy for human’s pain, instead of breaking hearts‘ And Iranians said such things, when Europeans were still barbarians. The world should know more about Persia and the Persian gifts to the mankind”.

The Persian history can show you many things about the Persian values. As some say: “Ansari and other Persian Sufis tried to think and behave like the ancient Persians, and that’s why they said: ‘We should not break any heart‘. They cared about goodness, kindness, sympathy, love, and other Persian values, aka the human values. The great Persian Mystics, including Ansari, said: ‘Win hearts, and don’t break any heart, and it’s the real job of the real humans‘. Ansari said: ‘Praying is the job of old women; Hajj is traveling and tourism; But feeding (and helping humans) is the job of the real humans’. It’s very important, and not only shows the depth of the religious tolerance in Iran, but it shows that many Persians were really open-minded, and cared about the human values, not a special religion”. Think about it. Many Iranians, including the Iranian Arefs, were, and still are, tolerant and open-minded towards almost everything. They just cared about the truth, the goodness, and the human values, not the religion. And that’s why we and many other Iranians write or talk about them. They were not so stupid, when most humans were so stupid. And it’s important. As some Iranians say: “One of the great Sufi martyrs was Hallaj who was crucified in 922 (?) in Baghdad for blasphemy. He was a follower of Bastami and Kharaghani. His offence was the statement: ‘I am the Truth’ which signified that he had attained union with God. He said ‘we all are god’. He repeated Bastami’s words. Hallaj and Bastami said, for instance: ‘I saw the Kaba walking round me. Moses desired to see God; I do not desire to see God; He desires to see me’. But the savage Arabs arrested Hallaj and killed him. Hallaj talked about the secrets, as even Khomeini, the founder of the Mullah regime said! Khomeini loved to pretend that he is a Aref or Sufi. He praised Hallaj and other Sufis. Khomeini, in one of his famous poems, said: ‘Hallaj’s offence was ‘telling the truth’, and revealing the secrets; I love to [become a Sufi martyr] like Hallaj’ ! Most Mullahs that are great evils, and great enemies of Iran, Iranians, and Sufis pretend that they are Arefs or Sufis!, because they know that the Iranians only see Arefs or Sufis as the good religious people”. It’s important. As some wise Iranians say: “Even the Basiji thugs and the savage Mullahs that are enemy of Iran, Iranians, and the Iranian culture, pretend or claim that “Being Arif or Sufi is the most high rank positions in Islam and near God!” But these savage Arabs are hypocrites, and hate the Iranian values, including the values of Arefs and Sufis, ie Truth, Goodness, Kindness, Sympathy, Love, Tolerance, etc”. It’s a good point. But not only the Arabs and the Mullahs, but even the Greeks and the Christians were followers of the Iranian Mysticism, and of course, they ‘shitted on it and destroyed it’ (Goh Zadand Behesh) as the witty Iranians say. As some Iranians say: “In the ancient Greece, many things had Iranian roots. They called Iranian Mysticism ‘gnosis’. As the Greek historians said: ‘We have witnessed the Iranian Mysticism in Zoroastrianism, where man joins God by performing good deeds, uttering good words, and thinking good thoughts‘ They were familiar with the Zoroaster’s advices and other old Persian texts, in which the ancient Iranians wrote about kindness, sympathy, love, goodness, etc, in more than 4,000 years ago”. It’s important. As some scholars say: “Zoroastrians follow the creed of ‘good thoughts, good words, good deeds‘ and uphold virtues of honesty, charity and hospitality. The concept of purity versus impurity is central to Zoroastrianism. In ancient Persia, there were elaborate codes to preserve food from impurities such as skin, nail clippings, sweat, blood, etc. It was forbidden to eat or drink from a common cup. But at the same time, the European Barbarians ate humans and children! Unfortunately, many Greeks were savage or ungrateful, and that’s why they told big lies, and tried to destroy the Persian Texts and the Iranian libraries. The non-Aryan (non-Iranian) Greeks had a barbarian culture that was opposite to ‘good thoughts, good words, good deeds‘ and other Iranian values. And at the time of Alexander, the Avesta was destroyed or dispersed by the Greeks, who translated into their own language those passages of which they could make use”. We would write more about the ungrateful Greeks later, but as some Iranians say: “The West and its Ministry of Truth could not hide the truth for ever. Even after the 18th century, when the British Barbarians and their Ministry of Truth tried to rewrite the human history, they could not omit the role of the Cradle of Civilization (Iran), because Iranians, their great influence, and their Iranian values were already everywhere”. They also add: “Even some one like Friedrich Nietzsche (1844- 1900) published the four parts of his Also sprach Zarathustra (Thus spoke Zarathustra) from 1883 to 1885. For Nietzsche ‘Zarathustra’ was a hero or an open-minded intellect. Even when you read the Greek historians’ books, that are full of lies and falsifications, their clear confessions, their paradoxical lies, their stupid paradoxes. and their stupid lies can show you who were the ancient Iranians that cared about the human values”. They also add: “Not only in Christianity, but in other major religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism, you can see the signs of Persian Mysticism. The ancient Persian doctrine taught that there were two original principles of the universe: Light, the good one; and Darkness, the evil one. Light is characterized by knowledge and feeling and acts by design and free will, whereas Darkness is ignorant and blind, and acts at random. Mankind’s role in this life was to release the parts of himself that belonged to Light or Goodness“. Most non-Iranians know nothing about the Persian values, Persian tolerance, Persian Mysticism, Persian Dance, Persian Music, and other parts of the Persian culture. As some say: “There is a Persian dance in which the Iranians actually felt they had reached union with God. This Persian dance was called Sama. In Persia, dance, music, celebration, and being happy was part of the Iranian culture, at least since the Jamshid era (15,000 years ago). Iranians believed that joy, happiness, love, good thoughts and good emotions belong to God and the real humans, and sorrow, bad thoughts, negative emotions, and badness belong to the Devil, the bad guys, and the Deev [Deev can be the Persian root of Devil]”. They also add: “The Arab God and the Jewish God (Western God) is full of hatred, darkness, tyranny, and bad thoughts. He asks his slaves to kill other humans. He tortures the free men. The Jewish God (Western God) is a genocidal God that love genocide. But the Persian God is a synonym of Good, Love, and Truth. He is full of love, kindness, goodness, and good thoughts. And it’s a key difference. The Mullah’s God is a Jewish/ Arab God, not an Iranian God. Mullahs are like Zahak or the Deev in the Persian mythology. And Iranians have always fought against the evil forces, including Zahak and the Deev. It was Iranians that put an end to the Umayads (661-749). Behzad Khorasani, known as Abu-Muslim, was a Persian that put an end to the savage Arab dynasty. It was Persians that fought against the Arabs, the Mongols, and all other barbarians. It’s Persian religion and Persian Mysticism that is the glorious peaceful religion Philosophy of the world. No one can deny it, because there are many many texts and evidence about it. Even Ministry of Truth could not destroy all Persian texts”. They also add: “Iranians wrote about those concepts and those values that the European human-eaters (Adam-Khor) and the Arab locust-eaters (Malakh-Khor) even could not think about them”.

Caricature1-zahak.jpg

“Many Iranian people are religious people. But they hate the Mullahs and the Islamists, who are anti-Iran and anti-Iranian evil forces. The Mullah’s God and the Mullah values are Arabic/ Jewish/ Western artifacts. The Mullahs and the Islamists, like their Western employers, love ‘lie’, ‘hypocrisy’, ‘savagery’, ‘censorship’, ‘tyranny’, ‘oppression’, and other evil things”, the religious Iranians say. And it’s hard to say it’s wrong. For the religious people in Iran, God means Hagh (Truth) or Khoob (Good), and such God cannot love those who tell big lies, kill and torture the people, and love tyranny, savagery, and inhumanity. As the religious Iranians say: “The Iranian people, religious or irreligious, care about Khoob (Good) and Khobi (goodness). The religious people in Iran see Khoda (God) as the symbol of Khoob (Good) and Khobi (goodness). So, the Mullahs and the Islamists, and other anti-Iranian jerks, that betray the truth and the human values, are bad people who are the pawns of the Badness (Badi) and the Devil”. In fact, as we said before, being religious or being irreligious is not the main issue. Some religious people are good guys, and some irreligious people are bad guys. And that’s why the wise Iranians say: “If you live like a good guy, and care about the truth and the human values, it’s not important that you are atheist, agnostic, Muslim, Jew, Christian, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, etc. Being human is important (Adam Budan Moheme)”. This view has a deep root in Iran, and it’s the root of Persian Tolerance. As some Iranians say: “Iranians care about their religious figures only because they think that these figures were good guys and cared about the truth, the goodness and the human values”. It’s really true. In Iran, most Iranians have always cared about the goodness and the good guys, not about a special race or a special religion. And it’s Persian Tolerance. As some Iranians say: “In Iran, Sufis or Arefs have been the most respectful religious figures, because they only cared about the truth and the goodness. In Iran, Irfan or Sufism has been a synonym for being goodness and caring about the truth. In Iran, ‘Persian Mysticism’ has a long history (more than 5,000 years), but what is known as Sufism is a Persian sect that was created at the end of the 8th century, and was an Iranian reaction to the Arabs. Sufism grew historically as a reaction against the Arab racists and the Arabic/ Barbaric version of Islam. Iranians said that in Islam all human are equal, but the savage Arabs believed that ‘all humans are equal, but the savage Arabs are more equal !” Unfortunately, the number of good English sources about “Persian Tolerance” and “Persian Mysticism” is small. And here I should thank the folks in all part of Great Iran (Great Persia), specially in Tajikistan, that have established several English websites (like this [1]) about Persia and Persian culture. All people in Great Iran are Iranians, and many of them are followers of great Persians and people like Ferdowsi, Attar, Nezami, Rumi (1207-1273), Khayam (1048?- 1123?), etc. We have already written about Attar and his book [3], or about Ferdowsi and his book [3], or about Seif Farghani and his poem [3], and we would write more about other great Persians, but it’s funny to know that most Iranian intellects and Iranian atheists/ agnostics had no problem with Sufis, or even they themselves were Sufis! [3], maybe because when God is nothing but the Truth and the Goodness, who can have problem with him/her, except the bad guys. As some wise Iranians say: “Sufis or Arefs were Iranian intellectuals. They talked about the Globalism, the humanity and the universal human values, when the Europeans suffered from the Medieval Barbarism”. They also add: “In about 4000 years ago, Zoroaster talked about ‘good thoughts, good words, good deeds‘. Before the Arab invasion, many Persian figures cared about the human values. For instance, Mani (216?- 275?) was an Iranian that tried to complete the teachings of Zoroaster, and Manichaeism became a major Mystic religion in Sassanid era. With the assistance of the Persian Empire, Mani and his followers began missionary expeditions. Many Eastern Europeans, that had Iranian roots, became followers of Mani. Manichaean monasteries even existed in Rome in the 4th century. Augustine of Hippo (354- 430) converted to Christianity from Manichaeism, in the year 387. This was shortly after the Roman Emperor Theodosius I had issued a decree of death for Manichaeans in 382, and shortly before he declared Christianity to be the only legitimate religion for the Roman Empire in 391. But Manichaeism, like other Iranian religions have influenced Christianity a lot. In Hungry, and some parts of Europe, you still can see traces of Manichaeism in both Catholicism and in Protestant Christianity; Manichaeian symbols are present in folk art, in Protestant churches and even on the Holy Crown”. They also add: “Mazdak (455?- 524?) was another Iranian reformer who gained influence under the reign of the Sassanians. He has been seen as a proto-socialist. Mazdak was the chief representative of a religious and philosophical teaching called Mazdakism, which he viewed as a purified version of Zoroastrianism. Mazdak fought against the corrupt mobeds, who had started to support tyranny of the upper class. Mazdak emphasized good conduct, which involved a moral and ascetic life, no killing and not eating flesh, and being kind and friendly and living in peace with other people. In the 6th century, people like Mazdak that were open-minded or intellectual, and defended the truth and the humanity. But after the Arab invasion, the open-minded Iranians were called ‘Mazdaki’, that was a label like ‘Liberal’ in today’s world! The savage Arabs and the fanatics called the tolerant people ‘Mazdaki’ and thought it’s a bad label ! The savage Arabs called the egalitarian Iranians ‘Mazdaki’ and thought that it’s an insult ! The savage Arabs saw the Persian Tolerance as a great sin! They called the Persian freedom fighters ‘Mazdaki’, and used it as a synonym for irreligious! The savage Arabs killed many Persians, but the followers of Mazdak, Zoroaster, and other great Persians survived. In the 9th century, the Khurramites, that was under the influence of Mazdakism, led a revolt under the leadership of a Persian, Babak Khorramdin, against the Arabs and their Abbasid Caliphate and successfully defended large territories against the Arab forces”. They also add: “Iran is the home of the human values. Many good things in Europe have Iranian roots. The Europeans that were Human-eaters even could not think about the good things! (Akhe Europaei Adam-Khor ro che be in Harf-ha!) The Arabs that were savage Locust-eaters even could not think about the Persian traditions (Akhe Arab Malak-Khor ro che be in Harf-ha!) The Arabs just shitted on the Sufism. They converted the Sufism into a passive or shitty sect, but the first Iranian Sufis were great humans. People like Attar, Hallaj, Bastami, Ansari, Kharaghani, Rumi, and many others that are were Iranians, can show you what was the Sufism. They were open-minded, tolerant, kind, hospitable, and human”. Even in the recent centuries and before the British betrayals, Persia was still Persia. What John Chardin wrote in his “Travels in Persia” (1673-1677) can show you part of the truth. As some Iranians say: “Jean Chardin (1643- 1713), the wealthy son of a French jeweller, visited Persia and wrote about the 17th century Persia. He was not a friend, but he confessed: ‘the most commendable Property of the Manners of the Persians is: their kindness to Strangers; the Reception and Protection they afford them, and their Universal Hospitality, and their Toleration, in regard to Religion‘. Chardin also confessed: “The Persians are very civil, and very honest in Matters of Religion’. Chardin also added: ‘Persians believe that all Men’s Prayers are good and prevalent; therefore, in their Illnesses, and in other Wants, they admit of, and even desire the Prayers of different Religions: I have seen it practiced a thousand Times‘. Chardin also confessed: “The Persians are the most Civilized People of the East. They are upon a level with the Politest Men of Europe[!] Their Air, their Countenance, is very well composed, Lovely, Grave, Majestical, and as Fond as may be; they never fail complimenting one another about the Precedency, either going out or coming into a House, or when they meet. The Persians are the greatest Complimenters in the World'”. The bad guys just try to brainwash public opinion and falsify the past and the present, and I hope that all good guys in all around the world can think more about the barbarian mindset and the civilized mindset.
