Happy Nowruz 7008 - Presain New Year - International Earth Day 2008

1000 Years Mankind Dream From Khayyam, Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler to Dr. Von Braun In Nasa

View of Earth rising over Moon's horizon taken from Apollo 11 spacecraft.
Description: This view of the Earth rising over the Moon's horizon was taken from the Apollo 11 spacecraft. The lunar terrain pictured is in the area of Smuth's Sea on the nearside. Coordinates of the center of the terrain are 85 degrees east longitude and 3 degrees north latitude.

Khayyam (May 1048 - Dec 1122) was a Persian poet as well as a mathematician and astronomer. He was an outstanding mathematician and astronomer. His work on algebra was known throughout Europe in the Middle Ages, and he also contributed to calendar reform. Khayyam measured the length of the year as 365.24219858156 days. Two comments on this result. Firstly it shows an incredible confidence to attempt to give the result to this degree of accuracy. We know now that the length of the years is changing in the sixth decimal place over a person's lifetime. Secondly it is outstandingly accurate. For comparison the length of the year at the end of the 19th century was 365.242196 days, while today it is 365.242190 days.

Copernicus, Nicolaus (1473-1543),
Polish astronomer, best known for his theory that the sun is at rest near the center of the universe and that the earth, spinning on its axis once daily, revolves annually around the sun. See Astronomy; Solar System.

Galileo (1564-1642), Italian physicist and astronomer, who, with German astronomer Johannes Kepler, started the scientific revolution that flowered in the work of English physicist Sir Isaac Newton. In the history of culture, Galileo stands as a symbol of the battle against restrictions on freedom of inquiry.

Kepler, Johannes (1571-1630), German astronomer, born in Württemberg, who formulated and verified the three laws of planetary motion, now known as Kepler's laws.

The Apollo 11 commander, Neil Armstrong, set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m., EDT. Was he the
first man on the moon? Was there another human there when he said "one giant step for mankind?"Yes, Neil Armstrong was with the souls & dreams of many past scientists from Omar Khayyam, Galileo Galilei, and .....
The moon has been the object of man's curiosity for perhaps a million years - as long as he has been on earth.

Dr. Wernher von Braun

Wernher von Braun stands at his desk in the Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama, in May 1964, with models of rockets developed and in progress.

Dr. Wernher Magnus Maximilian Freiherr ('Baron')[1] von Braun (March 23, 1912 – June 16, 1977) was the second son of a German nobleman and high official in the Weimar government (who resigned when the Nazis took power). He became one of the leading figures in the development of rocket technology in Germany and the United States. Wernher von Braun is sometimes said to be the preeminent rocket scientist of the 20th century.

Brilliant Mind Of Today Space Traveling

Khayyam (May 1050 - Dec 1122) was another Iranian Pillar of Wisdom, the most outstanding and greatest Iranian mathematicians, astronomers, Scientist, Philosopher, and Poet. An English scholar by the name of Edward Fitzgerald translated nearly 600 short four line poems of Khayyam called Rubaiyat and brought him fame and world recognition.

He was the father of Algebra. His work on algebra was known throughout Europe in the Middle Ages, and he also contributed to calendar reform.

If we consider the Persian Poems as master of encryption by great thinker when public …. then review the following poems from Khayyam approximately 1000 years ago that are selected by Donn Allen, a graduate of Caltech who his interest in and deep admiration for Khayyam span approximately 45 years.

What was Khayyam real understanding of Universe 1000 years ago and why our we have not progressed faster?
Khayyam vision of physics, the structure of the universe, time and space and the world they make can be defined in the following poem:
Khayyam calls the Wheel of Time an Imaginary Lantern.

Methinks this Wheel at which we gape and stare,
Is Chinese lantern - like we buy at fair;
The lamp is Sun and paper shade the world,
And we the pictures whirling unaware.

Science fails to solve the mystery of the cosmos.

The Skies rotate, I cannot guess the cause;
And all I feel is grief, which in me gnaws;
Surveying all my life, I find myself
The same unknowing dunce that once I was!

This whirl of time, it simply causes pains,
As for my heart, my evil ways are banes;
Ah! worldly lore that winds in labyrinths,
Ah! wisdom forging newer iron chains.

Time is only a tyrant causing universal change and trouble.

My grief prolongs, I find it nev’r allays,
Your lot is swinging now in higher sways;
Rely ye not on Time, for under veil
A thousand tricks he juggles as he plays.

Ye mount on steeds and brandish steels in fight,
With all your boasts, in trenches soon alight;
The tyrant Time will never spare a life,
He breaks the Dukes by day and Knights by night.

As Spheres are rolling woes alone increase,
They land us just to sink in deeper seas;
If souls unborn would only know our plight,
And how we pine, their coming-in will cease.

Omar is at war with the Sphere and wishes to annihilate it.

Had I but on the skies divine control,
I’d kick this bluish ball beyond the goal;
And forthwith furnish better worlds and times,
Where love will cling to every freeman’s soul.

But the final solution is that the tyrant Sphere has no real existence, hence we best avoid all trouble by being content.

Aye hear me please, my old and dearest friend!
Think naught of world - it hath no root or end;
Sit quiet on thy balcony content
To view how Wheel would play its turn-and-bend.

Desire no gain from world, with bliss you trade;
In good or bad of Times you need not wade;
Remain sedate, so that the whirling Wheel –
Would snap itself and blow up days it made

Khayyam poems are targeting all forms of fanaticism and today we ought to nominate him as the pioneer against any kind of fanaticism. Khayyam is father of rationality and agnostic thought process of Persians.

Some in deep thought spirit seek
Some lost in awe, of doubt reek
I fear the voice, hidden but not weak
Cry out "awake! Both ways are oblique."

"And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop't we live and die,
Lift not thy hands to it for help -- for It
Rolls impotently on as Thou or I."

What was Khayyam vision of religion 1000 years ago?

In astronomy, equinox can have two meanings:

The moment when the Sun is positioned directly over the Earth's equator and, by extension, the apparent position of the Sun at that moment—see below.
The time at which the vernal point, celestial equator, and other such elements are taken to be used in the definition of a celestial coordinate system—see Equinox (celestial coordinates)
An equinox in astronomy is that moment in time (not a whole day) when the center of the Sun can be observed to be directly above the Earth's equator, occurring around March 20 and September 23 each year.



Now How Big Are We When The Sun Become Just A Pixel In the Big Picture?
Are We Feeling insignificant yet?
And, how big are the things that will upset us today?
Or, for that matter, the things that are important?

We Should KEEP LIFE IN PERSPECTIVE With Better Vision and Mission ....
Human Being Might Become Significant One Day If and When We Have Correct PERSPECTIVE, VISION, MISSION ... And Apply Our Destructive Power In Constructive Directions ….

The perspective we get on Earth, our planet appears to be big and sturdy with an endless ocean of air. From space, astronauts often get the impression that the Earth is small with a thin, fragile layer of atmosphere. For a space traveler, the distinguishing Earth features are the blue waters, brown and green land masses and white clouds set against a black background. We should love and respect our small beautiful mother earth planet.
Many dream of traveling in space and viewing the wonders of the universe. In reality all of us are space travelers. Our spaceship is the planet Earth, traveling at the speed of 108,000 kilometers (67,000 miles) an hour. In order to control unlimited human greed and power in this century we must educate ourselves that as long as human being can not create self sufficient spaceship like earth then we must be wise how we use the earth resources and human being is not the only owner of this spaceship.....

For Immediate Release - Please post

Fellow countrymen, Happy New Year! Just as our custom is to weave blades of grass on Sizdeh-bedar, let us weave together among us the bonds of unity and our culture and prepare for the victory that belongs to us.

The Derafshe Kaviani is the ancient standard of the Iranian kings. It is the truest and oldest symbol of genuine Iranian culture. Today we fly it not only in celebration of the Iranian New Year, but in memory of Manochehr Farhangi, this peaceful soldier of true Iranian culture who died in this life to find his eternal place in the pages of the history of our land, a star blotted out from our sky to live forever in the pages of Iran’s history when it comes to be truly written. He was another soldier in the army of Yazdegerd III, the last true Iranian king. The battle of Qadesieh will go on till the foreign invaders are forcefully expelled from the land of Ahura Mazda.

Our Iranian banner, the Derafshe Kaviani, was burned once, 1400 years ago, by the Omar Ibn Khattab under the standard of Islam. But our banner will rise from its ashes and fly over Southern California parks during Sizdeh-bedar celebration on Sunday March 30, 2008 just as it did last October 15, 2007 over the Statue of Liberty and the footprint of New York’s Twin Towers.

May Ahura Mazda preserve Iran

Derafsh Kaviani

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Depiction of Derafsh -e- Kaviani based on Ferdowsi's descriptions in Shahnameh.The Derafsh-e Kavian (Derafš-e Kāvīān, Middle Persian) was the legendary royal standard of the Sassanid kings.[1] The banner was also sometimes called the "standard of Jamshid" (Derafš-e Jamshid), the "standard of Fereydun" (Derafš-e Fereydun), and the "royal standard" (Derafš-e Kayr).

The name Derafš-e Kāvīān (Modern Persian: Derafš Kāvīāni درفش كاويانى) means "the standard of the kay(s)" (i.e., kavis "kings") or "of Kāva."[1] The latter meaning is an identification with an Iranian legend in which the Derafš-e Kāvīān was the standard of a mythological blacksmith-turned-hero named Kāva (Modern Persian: Kāveh), who led a popular uprising against the foreign demon-like ruler Dahāg (Modern Persian: Zahhāk). Recalling the Sassanid-era legend, the 10th century epic Shāhnāma recasts Zahhak as an evil and tyrannical Arab, against whom Kāveh called the people to arms, using the blacksmith's leather apron on a spear as a standard. In the story, after the war that called for the kingship of Fereydun (Middle Persian: Frēdōn) had been won, the people decorated the apron with jewels and the flag became the symbol of Iranian independence and resistance towards foreign tyranny.

By the late Sassanid era (224-651), a real Derafš-e Kāvīān had emerged as the standard of the Sassanid dynasts. It was thus also representative of the Sassanid state - Ērānshāhr, the "Kingdom of Iran" - and may so be considered to have been the first "national flag" of Iran. The banner consisted of a star (the akotar) on a purple field, was encrusted with jewels and had trailing red, gold and purple streamers on its edges. The term akotar was significant since the star also represented "fortune", and the capture and destruction of the banner on a field of battle implied the loss of the battle (and hence the loss of fortune).[2] Following the defeat of the Sassanids at the Battle of al-Qādisiyyah, the Sassanid standard was recovered by one Zerar bin Kattab,[1] who received 30,000 dinars for it. After the jewels were removed the caliph Omar is said to have burned the standard.[1]

As the symbol of the Sassanid state,[3] the Derafsh-e Kavian was irrevocably tied to the concept of Eranshahr and hence with the concept of Iranian nationhood. Thus, in 867, when the Saffarid "Yaqub Layt 'claimed the inheritance of the kings of Persia' and sought 'to revive their glory,' a poem written on his behalf sent to the Abbasid caliph said: 'With me is the Derafsh-e Kavian, through which I hope to rule the nations'."[2] Although no evidence that Yaqub Layt ever re-recreated such a flag survives, star imagery in banners remained popular until the ascendance of the lion and sun symbol.

derafsh as pronounced by the sherazi's and darafsh being the pronunciation of the rest of the dynasty that settled in tehran.

Commemoration of Battle of Qadissiya - 1368 years later

Derafsh Kaviani


To all true Iranians:

Feb 19 is the commemoration day of the start of the battle of Qaddissiya.
Qadissiya battle started on Monday February 19, 636(A.D) and lasted for four(4) days.

On the flat plains near the Euphrates river in modern Iraq between Kufa and abu sukheir.

The Sassanian army under the command of Lt. General Rostam-e-farokzad(In Pahlavi- Eran- Sepah-bod) and the Arab army of caliph Omar under the command of Sa'd ibn Abi waqqas clashed.

Many Iranians fought bravely and died( more than30,000 dead) in this battle trying to defend Iran from the nomadic Arabs attempting to convert Iranians to their Islamic religion.

At the end of the battle Lt. Gen Rostam was killed and the national flag (Darfash-e-Kavian) was captured by the Arab nomads.

This flag was taken to Caliph Omar who promptly removed all of the magnificent jewels set on it and then ordered it to be burned.

After the battle the Arabs went to the capital Ctesiphone, the glorious capital of Sasanian empire and the largest city in the world at that time, the city was invaded, sacked, and functionally destroyed by the armies of Islam.

The great Carpet of BAHARESTAN, woven with threads of gold and silver in the great arched hall of the palace of Ctesiphone was cut up by the Arab nomads and distributed as war booty.

Note:- this looting is still going on 1368 years later.

Gondi Shapour university and library were destroyed and its books were burned by the invaders. Most of Sasanian records and literary works were destroyed.

This day Feb 19 should be commemorated by all Iranians nationally and internationally.

This is our real national "Ashura" not the one the Mullahs force us to commemorate.

Instead of going on a pilgrimage to Mecca and Karbla we should all go to Qaddissiya to remind ourselves of the truth of what has happened to us over the past 1368 years.

It is our duty to inform the world as well as remind the Arab world itself of their crimes and barbaric behaviour against the people of Iran during this period.

Arabs should be reminded of their massacres of Iranians in the city of Estakher and other areas.

They should be reminded of their racist policies and their looting, pillaging, raping and abuse of Iran and its people for the 200 years of their rule.

We should do our utmost to ensure that it will never happen again.

In memory of the fallen of battles of Qadissyia and Nahavand.

Payandeh Iran


Commentary by "AmirN":

It is by forgetting our real history that we have allowed Islam to continue to strangle our country. Any Iranian who chooses to follow the bogus religion of the Arab pirates of the desert must question whether he or she is true to Iran.

By forgetting or neglecting Iran's history we only bring shame to the memory of our forefathers and to ourselves. We bring shame to the great nation of Iran.

I will now leave you with a few verses from Persian's Poetic Past:


The sands of time have always known
That civilization which has grown
In that plateau we call Iran
Land of the lion, land of the sun

Kourosh brought unmatched glory
Dariush’s Persepolis told the lasting story
Strength came from tolerance and freedom
Justice and nobility flourished in this kingdom

The greatest empire ever seen
Their lasting legacy was unforeseen
Masters of the world
The Persians’ achievements must be told

Wise words of Kourosh, baked on a cylinder of clay
Respected foreign cultures, and their right to freely pray
Women were respected, and slavery abolished
Kourosh was Great, for the human rights he polished

To conquer foreign lands requires minimal exertion
But to unite an empire, is a remarkable contention
Always building and improving, and never standing still
Dariush was Great, for his administrative skill

The Royal Road, with Sardis at the end and Shooshan at the start
Was an awe of transportation, connecting Persia’s heart
Who carved the Suez Canal, giving commerce speedy wings?
King Dariush, son of Hystaspes, an Achaemenid, the King of Kings

The father, with passion and pride, passed to his son
His love of law, beauty, architecture, and care of Iran
Dariush began building, but Xashayar finished these perfections
Xashayar was Great, for his magnificent creations

And what of Marathon, Thermopylae, and Salamis?
Did the Greeks truly receive such bliss?
Herodotus embellished, told lies for the West
For the Persians, these were skirmishes at best

But every golden era must someday end
So too Achaemanesh’s dynasty would bend
Alexander’s army won, but could not see
Win or lose, Persians’ hearts always stay free

Revenge, envy, and wine made Alexander yearn
The pride of Persia, Persepolis, to burn
The labor of years, by a thousand artisans employed
Took one lunatic one night, for this jewel to be destroyed

Greatness comes, from a worthy contribution
To humanity, to art, to law, or a scientific institution
Those who burn and loot deserve our hate
So answer this, was Alexander truly Great?

Now who were the barbarians, the Persians or the Greeks?
Our lowest troughs, still higher than their highest peaks
The art of empire, the Greeks could never master
Constant feuding and civil wars, left Greece in a disaster

Parthians picked up the torch of our land
Put Iranian rule back in Iranian hand
They showed Greece and Rome, to name just two
That Iran possesses great horses, and great men too

Like a Phoenix, from the ashes rising
The Sassanians arrived, with Iran reorganizing
Power, wealth, and wisdom again flourished
The rule of Ardeshir, Shapur, and Khosro let Iran be nourished

Life was based on three simple needs
Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds
Monotheist religion, for all its evil and its good
Came from Iran, from where Zarathustra stood

Rome, for all its power and its legions
Couldn’t touch Iran’s vast regions
Many times Rome tried but failed
Every time cataphract armor thundered and hailed

But Sassanian wealth and beauty caught the eye
Of a desert tribe, whose religion was a lie
Like desert snakes, they ruthlessly attacked
Until beautiful Ctesiphone was sacked

Rostam-e-Farokhzad, the brave and capable general
Fought till the end, though his wounds were several
At Qaddissiya, he came to Iran’s defense
Alas, the Taazi army was too dense

With coercion and the sword
Islam was able to spread its word
A dark and sinister force was born
That to this day brings Iran much scorn

Some to India had to flee
Iran’s destruction was unbearable to see
Parsees, they are called to this day
Ahura Mazda, with them will always stay

But Iranian roots are strong and hard to kill
Iran was freed again, with such a thrill
The Saffarids would answer the nation’s call
To make Arab tyranny shamefully fall

Don’t mourn the Ashura, weep a Taazi’s death
Hassan and Hossein were foreigners, who weakened Iran’s breath
If mourn you must, then mourn, a national event
Like Gaugamela, or Qaddissiya, places of great lament

While Europe was stagnant in its Dark Ages
Persian scholars thrived, free from mental cages
From algebra, to astronomy, and architecture
Persians wrote the book, and gave the lecture

A time of great Persian thinkers had emerged
Where poetry and science, love and knowledge, easily verged
Saadi, Hafez, Rumi, Omar Khayam to name a few
Thanks to them, humanity exponentially grew

Arabs from time to time, try to falsely claim
These brilliant men, and their golden works of fame
Dream on, Taazi, and of this be sure:
These men were always Persian, and completely pure

Who could forget Ferdowsi, the greatest poet ever?
He gave us Sam, Zal, and Rostam, heroes both brave and clever
The Persian language, so eloquently resurrected
As The Shahnameh was written with all Arabic words neglected

Many other invaders would come again, much the same
From Genghis Khan to Teimur the Lame
They would loot, burn, and murder
The cities too proud to surrender

Though Turks and Mongols had military strength
They were lacking in cultural length
The Persian culture was too rich, to be absorbed into theirs
Instead they settled in Iran, and joined her proud heirs

It’s clear from this short and simple recap
That Iran had its share of glory, as well as mishap
Our generation is unfortunate, assigned the station
Of another dark chapter, in the book of our nation

Once again Zahak is in power
His snakes consume and poison every flower
He uses religion and superstition
To enforce his selfish and malicious mission

So once more dust off the Kaviyani banner
And fly it high, in a proud and fitting manner
Zahak and his snakes will die once more
And our nation we shall yet restore

Arabs, pack your camels, and form a line
Leave this land, let the lion roar, let the sun shine
Or get thrown out, by Kaveh, and his noble flame
Return to the desert sands, from whence you once came

Iran in its infancy reached the sky
Will faravahar’s wings expand, will Iran soar that high?
Just lift the veil, you’ll surely see
Iran’s brightest days lie ahead, when the Aryans are again free

Those who know not their history are deaf to the past, mute to the present, and blind to the future

Transcript of Obama's Message in Celebration of Nowruz

THE PRESIDENT: Today I want to extend my very best wishes to all who are celebrating Nowruz around the world.

This holiday is both an ancient ritual and a moment of renewal, and I hope that you enjoy this special time of year with friends and family.

In particular, I would like to speak directly to the people and leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Nowruz is just one part of your great and celebrated culture. Over many centuries your art, your music, literature and innovation have made the world a better and more beautiful place.

Here in the United States our own communities have been enhanced by the contributions of Iranian Americans. We know that you are a great civilization, and your accomplishments have earned the respect of the United States and the world.

For nearly three decades relations between our nations have been strained. But at this holiday we are reminded of the common humanity that binds us together. Indeed, you will be celebrating your New Year in much the same way that we Americans mark our holidays -- by gathering with friends and family, exchanging gifts and stories, and looking to the future with a renewed sense of hope.

Within these celebrations lies the promise of a new day, the promise of opportunity for our children, security for our families, progress for our communities, and peace between nations. Those are shared hopes, those are common dreams.

So in this season of new beginnings I would like to speak clearly to Iran's leaders. We have serious differences that have grown over time. My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties among the United States, Iran and the international community. This process will not be advanced by threats. We seek instead engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect.

You, too, have a choice. The United States wants the Islamic Republic of Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations. You have that right -- but it comes with real responsibilities, and that place cannot be reached through terror or arms, but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization. And the measure of that greatness is not the capacity to destroy, it is your demonstrated ability to build and create.

So on the occasion of your New Year, I want you, the people and leaders of Iran, to understand the future that we seek. It's a future with renewed exchanges among our people, and greater opportunities for partnership and commerce. It's a future where the old divisions are overcome, where you and all of your neighbors and the wider world can live in greater security and greater peace.

I know that this won't be reached easily. There are those who insist that we be defined by our differences. But let us remember the words that were written by the poet Saadi, so many years ago: "The children of Adam are limbs to each other, having been created of one essence."

With the coming of a new season, we're reminded of this precious humanity that we all share. And we can once again call upon this spirit as we seek the promise of a new beginning.

Thank you, and Eid-eh Shoma Mobarak.

Happy Nowruz 7009 - Presain New Year - International Earth Day 2009

Peres spoke in Hebrew for most of the blessing, but then ended his address with a traditional Persian holiday greeting in Farsi: "May your Nowruz be a victory, and every day be Nowruz!"

"I think the Iranian nation will topple these leaders. Leaders that do not serve the people will, in the end, the nation will get rid of them," Peres said in the interview.

"On the eve of the new year, I appeal to the noble Iranian people on behalf of the ancient Jewish people and urge them to reclaim their worthy place among the nations of the enlightened world," Peres said.




پرزیدنت پرس نخستین شخصیت جهان درارسال پیام نوروزباستانی بودند:

«امیدواربه بازگشت ایران به دوران شکوه شایسته ایران هستیم»

پیام نوروزی رئیس جمهوری اسرائیل به مردم ایران:
برخلاف آن رژیم، برای ایرانیان آرزوی نیک داریم.

20 مارس 2009

پرزیدنت شیمعون پرس رئیس جمهوری اسرائیل با فرستادن پیام ویژه ای خطاب به ایرانیان، فرا رسیدن نوروز 1388 خورشیدی را به همگان شادباش گفتند و آرزو کردند که سال پیش رو، برای مردم با فرهنگ ایران، سال شادکامی و رسیدن به آزادی انسانی باشد.
پرزیدنت پرس پیام خود را با جمله ای به زبان فارسی آغاز کرد و آن را به زبان فارسی پایان داد.
رئیس جمهوری اسرائیل در آغاز پیام گفت:
ایرانیان عزیز روز نو و نوروز باستانی به شما خوش باد.
جشن باستانی شما، عید نوروز را شادباش می گویم. عید نوزائی که شادمانی و امید به دنبال دارد و روز نوئی می آورد، روزها تازه ای را نوید می دهد و سال جدیدی را به دنبال دارد که سال پر برکت باشد.
خوشا به حال شما که چنین عید باستانی دارید که نسل بعد از نسل آن را پاسداری کرده و جشن گرفته اید.
ملت اسرائیل یادبودهای تاریخی گرانبهائی از دوران هائی دارد که ایران در هر زمینه شکوفا بود و از جمله منشور حقوق بشر کورش کبیر را به جهانیان اهدا کرد و به ملت اسرائیل حق بازگشت به وطن خویش را به ارمغان بخشید و به این قوم امکان داد از اسارت امپراطوری بابل آزاد شود و به اورشلیم باز گردد تا بتواند بیت المقدس خود را از نو بنا کند.
به پاس این بزرگ منشی، ملت ایران و سرزمین ایران جایگاه ویژه ای در میراث تاریخ یهود دارند.
ولی حتی در عصر حاضر (و نه تنها در قرون باستان) روابط ایران و اسرائیل از دوران شکوفائی و برکت برخوردار بوده است. دورانی که ما اسرائیلیان تجربیات خود در زمین کشاورزی، صنعت، دانش و علوم، پزشکی و غیره را با شما ایرانیان در میان گذاشتیم و کوشیدیم بهترین روابط را با شما برقرار کنیم.
شوربختانه مناسبات دو کشور، امروز در تیره ترین سطح خود قرار دارد- این وضع ناشی از نیت های ناپاک رژیم ایران است که می کوشد از هر طریق ممکن علیه کشور اسرائیل و مردمان آن به اقدام بپردازد و اسرائیل را حتی به نابودی تهدید می کند.
من از خویش می پرسم که چگونه است ملت فرهیخته ای مانند شما ایرانیان، به سوی چنین تنفر کورکورانه ای کشیده می شود. چگونه مردمانی رهبری کشور شما را به دست گرفته اند که از یهودیانی که بدست نازی ها کشته شدند هتک احترام می کند، و می خواهند کشور دیگری را ویران و نابود کنند؟

شما پروردگار را باور دارید و ما نیز یزدان را می پرستیم. پروردگار زندگی و حیثیت، و نه خداوندگار کینه و کشتار.
من تردید ندارم که دور نیست آن روزی که روابط همزیستی بین دو ملت به وضع پیشین خود باز گردد و آن همکاری های سازنده بین دو ملت دوباره در همه زمینه ها شکوفا شود و در خدمت دو ملت و در راه آینده مشترک دو کشور قرار گیرد.
در این ایامی که رژیم کنونی در ایران سخن از انهدام اسرائیل می گوید، ما آرزوی شکوفائی و نیک بختی مردم ایران را داریم. ما کورش کبیر را به یاد داریم که در کتاب مقدس تورات با نام منجی پروردگار از او اسم برده شده است و به یاد داریم که یهودیان قرن ها و نسل ها در ایران ساکن بودند و در سازندگی کشور شما نقش داشتند و در راه اعتلای تمدن ایران زمین و فرهنگ یهود گام برداشتند.
ما امیدواریم و مطمئن هستیم که پلیدی و شرارت بالاخره از جهان رخت برخواهد بست.
نیاز چه کسی را تامین می کند؟
در راه نیک بختی همه ملت های جهان و مردمان دنیا، حتی اگر ابنای بشر با هم تفاوت و دگرگونی دارند، دلیل آن نیست که یکی دیگری را مورد تهدید قرار دهد، یا کسی از دیگری تنفر داشته باشد و یا درصدد نابودی او برآید.
در آستانه سال فرخنده نو، من به ملت فرهیخته ایران روی آورده و توصیه و درخواست می کنم که به اصالت باستانی خویش باز گردد.
من به نام امت باستانی اسرائیل، برای ملت کهن زمان ایران آرزو می کنم که هر چه زودتر جایگاه شایسته و والای خویش را در میان کشورهای فرهیخته جهان باز یابد و دوباره از احترام برخوردار گردد و مورد تنفر قرار نگیرد و همان گونه که در گذشته به فرهنگ جهان خدمت کرد، دوباره در آن نقش سازنده ای به عهده گیرد - و همان گونه که درگذشته مصدر خدمات جهانی بود، درآینده نیز دوباره در این راه گام بردارد.
من پیام خویش را با این جملات به زبان فارسی به پایان می برم:
نوروزتان پیروز و هر روزتان نوروز باد!

Thank you for your positive Nowruz message to Iranian People, Iranian-American community and praising non-Islamic features of Iranian civilization and innovations and their pre Islamic contributions to history of mankind.

Response: Top Harvard University Scholar Professor Richard Nelson Frye Lecture at UCLA Royce Hall - March 13, 2005
- Iranian is a culture.
- The second occupation of Iran By Muslims and Arabs happened again with the revolution 1978.
- Iranian poetry is world poetry, no one is better than the Iranian poets.
- Everyone in Iran is a poet.

Great majority of Iranian people and Iranian-American community reject referring to Iran as "Islamic republic of Iran" and legitimizing the Islamist Terror and Torture masters.

President Obama, you have two clear choices: Stand behind freedom-loving Iranian people, Iranian-Americans with over 95% majority and fully support them to fight for FREE Iran, freedom, Free Society, secular democracy and human rights or deal with the Islamist Mafia invaders and Occupiers of Iran who is in control of the Oil money with mercenaries security forces who have taken Iranian nation as hostage in past 30 years.

Radio Free Europe Breaking News March 19, 2009:
OMID Mirsayafi died in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison
OMID blogged about traditional Persian music and culture, not politics.

Demanding International Criminal Court (ICC), UN and President Obama ACTIONS NOW for crimes against humanity related to all the top leaders of Islamist Regime who are considered as Invaders and Occupiers of Iran and international criminal by great majority of Iranian people who have been hostages of regime in past 30 years ....

67 Active Petitions By FREE Iran Communities Against Islamist Mullahs Invaders and Occupiers Of Iran (Taazi) Which Are Supported By ActivistChat Might Be Considered As The Best Detail Response to The President Obama's Nowruz Message For Iranian People ....
