Who Really Are These Barbaric Persians?

Recently, we are witnessing the Media outlets accelerate their war drums and calls for an attack on Iran.

We hear them say:

"Iran is a country full of terrorists."

"Iran is a country full of barbarians."

"Iranians hate the West because of their lifestyle."

"Iran is going to nuke Israel."

The Media's Multi-Billion Dollar funded propagandas are repeated over and over until people start to believe it as fact.

However, let us not judge a society too quick.

Let us look at the following Iranians:

-Omid Kordestani

Was the Senior Vice President for Worldwide Sales and Field Operations of Google until April 16, 2009.

In the May 8, 2006 issue of Time Magazine, Kordestani was named one of Time's "100 People who shape our world".

Kordestani is one of the wealthiest residents in Northern California. San Jose magazine estimates his net worth at $1.9 billion.

He was selected as The Persian Person of the Year in 2007 by Persian Awards.

(VERY Intelligent Man, One of The Most Notorious Marketers in the World)

-Firouz Naderi

NASA director of Mars project.

Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)

2005 recipient of Ellis Island Medal of Honor

2004 winner of the Liberal Prize

NASA’s Outstanding Leadership Medal

Space Technology Hall of Fame Medal and NASA’s highest award – the Distinguished Service Medal.

-Nouriel Roubini

He began academic research and policy making by teaching at Yale while also spending time at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Federal Reserve, World Bank, and Bank of Israel. Much of his early studies focused on emerging markets. During the administration of President Bill Clinton, he was a senior economist for the Council of Economic Advisers, later moving to the United States Treasury Department as a senior adviser to Timothy Geithner, who is now Treasury Secretary.

Prospect Magazine, in January 2009, voted him #2 on its "list of the world’s 100 greatest living public intellectuals". He has recently appeared before Congress, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the World Economic Forum at Davos.

-Alia Sabur (20 years old)

Currently the world's youngest professor. She is professor in the Department of Advanced Technology Fusion at Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea.

On 19 February 2008, the Guinness Book of World Records named Sabur the World's Youngest Professor, a designation that had been held by Colin Maclaurin since 1717, when he was appointed professor of mathematics at 19 years and 7 months of age.

-Manny Mashouf

He is the founder and present chairman of the very popular clothing brand Bebe.

-Farzad Nazem

Was Yahoo!'s chief technology officer and one of its longest-serving executives.

-Pierre M. Omidyar

Is the founder and chairman of Ebay. (Amazing because millions of people who use the site everyday think Iran is a threat, but they don't even know that the site they are on was invented by an Iranian)

-Sina Tamaddon

Is Senior Vice President of Applications for Apple Inc today reporting directly to Steve Jobs.

-Christiane Amanpour

Is CNN's chief international correspondent and anchor of Amanpour, a 30-minute interview show.

-Rudi Bakhtiar

Journalist who has over a decade's experience working for major international news outlets CNN and Fox News Channel.

-Farzad Bonyadi

Has won 3 World Series of Poker bracelets.

Yes, I am afraid I too hear the drums of war once again.

It's almost like sensing a tightening rubber band, before long you know something will snap.

So the question to ask yourself is this?

Who really are Iranians?

Are they just a bunch of terrorists trying to destroy the West simply because of their lifestyles?

Or, is it that the Media will lie over and over to get what it wants, which at the end of the day is always: Money.

War is a Big Business and creates tons of Money for the people running the show.

Everyone just wants to live in peace, and it is only a few people in each country that are fanatics and are hell bent on destroying the planet.

As soon as we put ethnicity, religion, color of skin, etc. aside, then we can all accelerate Humanities Consciousness and become One in the Infinite.

Don't judge a society too quick.

Think For Yourself.

I think you make a good point, a lot of people don't understand what amazing people the Iranians are.

I, do not feel threatened by their nation. BUT. What would the people do if the leadership attacked Israel with a nuclear weapon? They couldn't do anything! They have no weapons, no power to control the government.

The dogs of war are baying.

Every country who wages war is indecent and foul.

They are also ignorant, because another war will be the end of mankind.

And we could have saved this planet, if not for war and greed.

Star, and flag OP. This is one of the best threads, absolutely most refreshing, and I think is original, that I've seen in a while.

People need to realize that those folks are just that!!!!!!!!!!! Folks like are back in the States. People the World over are basically the same, but the Elite brainwash especially the US into believing differently. Why?????

The US is gearing towards being the World's army, or more correctly Police force.......stay in line, or else. So again OP, I think what You did was show that Iranians do count; that they are not only human, but very productive. They add to the World in a positive light

Notably All of the Persians/Iranians in the op do not live in Iran under the present Iranian government and most of them are Americans of Iranian descent living in California for the most part. Rather an odd thing to compare these Iranian/Americans to the present ruling elite in Iran dont you think?

Easy on the facts there pal, or our Western media dispersed war-programming may not "rally the masses" enough to garner the "public opinion" TPTB wish to foment in favor of imposing "Democracy" on the Iranians.

Real Problem: Iranians are not "doing business" in the manner which TPTB prefer - ie...dropping the Dollar for the Euro.

Real Reaction: Ramp-up the MSM propaganda to further demonize the Iranians (in typical inaccurate sweeping-generalization fashion), thereby growing consensus among the continually hoodwinked masses that "something must be done" to deal with these "barbaric terrorists".

False Solution: "Liberate" the Iranians (invade, occupy, set up puppet-government, and above all - bring the Iranian Central Bank under Western financial oligarchic control).

That's how I see it.
