10 similarities between Israel and IRI
by Arash Monzavi-Kia

Similarities between the Jewish state of Israel and the Islamic republic of Iran show that, there are many paths to ruthless conduct. Funny or tragic enough, each of those regimes uses the other to justify its cruel actions, oppress its dissidents and minorities, and frighten the public of the bogeyman!

1. Both are religion-based regimes, rooted in ancient Mesopotamian mumbo jumbo;

2. Both have large population of non-believers, who suffer in the hands of the more radical, vocal and organized zealots;

3. Both pursue a systematic suppression of ethnic and religious minorities;

4. Both have notorious secret services that are often accused of cruel acts of torture and murder;

5. Both have aspiration to lead the world, as a group of ‘chosen people’, with whom god has made a special covenant;

6. Both await the emergence of a messiah who will transform the whole world into a mono-religious “paradise”;

7. Both have parliamentary systems, but ones that disenfranchise large portions of their population;

8. In both countries, the leaders claim to be holier-than-thou, but are often revealed as rotten corrupts;

9. Non-believers in both countries are harassed, e.g. women with revealing clothes, or men thought to break religious laws (drinking in Iran, driving on a Saturday in Israel);

10. Both have clandestine nuclear programs, which have either resulted in weapons of mass destruction or are on their way to it.

Mehdi,

by Arash Monzavi-Kia on

I didn't say they are the same, just similarities! So don't be defensive.

As for those rabbis poisoning our beloved president, just read your own statement: 'they even kissed him on his chick'. Considering how filthy our nutjob is; your agent-rabbis are by now either dead or suffering leprosy!

Arash - Similarity?

by Mehdi Mazloom on

Come on use your head. The Israeli Mossad is well known and feared around the world for its effectiveness of getting close and put their hand on any opponent anywhere, anytime.

What makes you think that, one or perhaps two of these "rabbis" are not Mossad agents. You see how close they can get to their targets.?

Oh, they even hand shook and kissed him on his chick. Could have been kiss of death for this little akh-mag.

have you read recen reports about Hassan Nassrallah. he was on his deathbed from poisenting. Only a team of 15 Iranian doctors who flew to Beirut saved his life................. for now.

Anonymous Persian - Muslim fair tales

by Mehdi Mazloom on

you write:

Most modern-day Jews, whether from Poland, Russia, Romania, Morocco or
wherever, are not descended from the Jews of 2000 years ago. Those Jews
in the Holy Land converted to Christianity (just like the people of
Syria, Egypt, and Iraq did) and later Islam.

I assume that you are a Muslim. A religion from which its founder had outright plagiarized and copied many of Jews (and Christina) tenants. later declared them as his original. The very concept of Hallal (Kosher), Millah (Circumcision), and many others. The funnies of the all. Muhammad being the direct descendant of Patriarch Abraham.

sure enough, when you can't argue with the other side on an equal level, then try to cut him by the knee, to remove the him/her from the scene.

Now, as believer of religion which came after Judaism & Christianity, how the hell would you know about Jewish history. How much do you and others like you have been taught about true history, the Jewish rebellion and the destruction of their 2nd Temple in Jerusalem in 70 ACE, and exile of those Jews to Europe and ME. IT has been proven through the Y-Chromosome research that Jews in Europe (and delsewhere) are indeed the descendent of their ancestosr expelled from Jerusalm.

Jews history in Israel is literary carved on every stone. Yet, morons and ill educated like you come here and define the history and legitimacy of a group of people whom you know next to nothing about.

If Muslims claim of legitimate ancestry in today's Israel is any valid, why don't you show me a 2000 year old Dead Sea Scrolls, written in Arabic, instead of Hebrew.

This type backward and primitive approach and disrespect to others with whom you disagree, are the exact causes why Arabs & Muslims are held in such a low standard, and considered no more then rag tag Bedouins who came from the deserts of Arabia and kept their backward cultural.

If you wish to be honored, you will have to earn it. Questioning other people legitimacy will not get you that honor. 


I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

Zion has to be among us. Among Jews, Zion = Zilch

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

Just let Zion troll around. What do you expect? Zion has to live up to that Avatar and name. Anonymous Persian represents everything good about the comments section. That FACT about the true ancestral lands is correct. But alas, when it comes to Israel and Zions, facts schmacts! Kiljoy powerhead all the way :)

It's funny how a nut like Zion can defend Israel and all the illegal stuff that government does, get not be called a terrorist by mainstream. YET When an Iranian-American does the same about Iran, they are automatically maligned. Zion is a nobody, vali we are Iranians among Iranians and it's because of the outside filth and bothersome foreigners we can't ever organize and have our peace.

Israel is a wreck. It's a disaster of a country. Personally, I'll take Iran any day over Israel. Many Jews have.

LOL

by amirkabear4u on

Arash you have forgotten racism in your list. Both have this. Also both try to establish religion by force to make money. Your blog is going to make a lot of israel lovers fuming. So be careful!!!


Zion

Thanks Arash

by Zion on

That means a lot coming from you.
Irandokht, you too, believe me. :-)
I have provided ample arguments and links before. There is no discussion when facts are misrepresented.
As if your question was an honest inquiry to learn. Grow up, OK?

Zion, your arrogance is disgusting

by Arash Monzavi-Kia on

The depth of your arrogance is so appaling that makes it like, you are too used to pushing Arab women and children around at the Palestinian check points!

It is your skull that is made of bias stone and makes you oblivious to all that is wrong with your beloved rotten Israel. We Iranians mostly see our faults and admit to it; it is you who thinks that she is perfect and all knowing! You are probably just a biased bigot.

Zion is lying: Russia and Poland are Ashkenazi "ancestral" lands

by Anonymous Persian (not verified) on

Most modern-day Jews, whether from Poland, Russia, Romania, Morocco or wherever, are not descended from the Jews of 2000 years ago. Those Jews in the Holy Land converted to Christianity (just like the people of Syria, Egypt, and Iraq did) and later Islam. Large numbers of non-Jews in Russia, Morocco, and Yemen converted to Judaism many centuries ago. The real descendants of the ancient Israelites are the Palestinians, not the Ashkenazim of Eastern Europe or Sephardim of North Africa. Modern-day Israel is not the "ancestral" land of Russian or Polish Jews, but Poland and Russia are. Russian and Polish Jews have as much right to establish a state in the Middle East as Russian and Polish Christians do (in other words, none). This claim by Zionists is a fraud and has no basis in fact.

the real pity

by IRANdokht on

The real pity is in the way you turn any discussion or argument into personal insult and feel so righteous while showing how weak your reasoning really is that the only way to defend your view is to belittle others and insult them.

That's what's really pitiful

Zion

Yes you are confused

by Zion on

Which is little surprise, and it is definitely not the only thing you are confused about in your life, if I may say so.
Jews had to escape camps in Cyprus and elsewhere to get to their ancestral land, and fight the British to get independence. There is nothing racial in the fact that this land is the Jewish ancestral homeland, no more than a similar claim for Iran being the ancestral homeland of Iranians is a racist one, and Israeli state is founded on equality before law for all its citizens.
The amazing thing is, these are already discussed many times before in this website, and still you get to find skulls too thick to let facts get inside. Its pitiful.


IRANdokht

Zion

by IRANdokht on

Are you saying that the state of israel is founded on the idea that jews owned the land? is the racial motivation the reason for treating the people who actually lived there before the occupation as second class human beings? is that what secular means now?

IRANdokht


IRANdokht

how could it be?

by IRANdokht on

I am confused now: didn't Europeans kick out the "jews" and make them live in the middle of the muslim countries pretending they were sorry for having killed so many of them?  I thought being Jewish referred to a religion.

Gosh you learn something new every day!

IRANdokht


Zion

No it isn't

by Zion on

Israel is a modern secular state built on the inalienable right of the Jewish people to their ancestral homeland, and as a refuge for victims of anti-semtism in the world. The mythical account of the ancestors of Jews regarding their homeland, something that is shared by all ancient people with history regarding their lands, is not the "basis" of that right, but a cultural heritage of the people who have rights to that land because of their history. The right if every Jew to citizenship of Israel is at the core of the idea of the modern state of Israel, and has nothing to do with the promised land or chosen people mythology either.
Stop ranting about things you know very little about, if anything at all.


Arash Monzavi-Kia

Zion = shameless ignorant bully

by Arash Monzavi-Kia on

Chosen people, Promised Land and the right of EVERY Jew to citizenship is at the core of Israel's existence.

You are an ignorant and angry bully, who distorts every little bit of argument to her prejudice and bias.

Zion

Rubbish

by Zion on

As usual. Israel is not a religious state, it is not created on the basis of the religious notion of "chosen people", the religious groups hate the secular nature of the government (and those you on the picture you've chosen specially hate to the very existence of Israel) , the state encourages ethnic and cultural differences, women's rights, is a refuge for divers Arab dissidents and gays... .

You are sick. See a shrink.

I'm just wondering

by Kurush (not verified) on

most of your points are easily applicable to the USA as well. The white supramacist Anglo-Saxons have their Manifet Destiny which says they are the chosen people to rule the world, have the most massive nuclear arsenal in the world, have been ruled by a small minority since slavery era in which a small number of slave-holding families controlled the US policies, today they are the plutocratic minority; the Mesopotamian mumbo-jumbo is widespread if you go to one of those 'rapture' crowd assemblies; they have had one of the most notrious assassination clubs, the CIA; they have forever disenfranchised the minorities and the immigrants; their politicians are equally corrupt. Just a thought!
