Teheran (AsiaNews) - The expansion of the culture of martyrdom is the "decision" of General Mohammad-Reza Naghdi, head of the Basij paramilitary group - which operates under the command of the Revolutionary Guard and has distinguished itself in the violent repression of opposition demonstrations - taken together with the Ministry of Education.

The general added that he was pursuing the goal adding “values of divine defence of the Iranian nation” into the classrooms and books. The "Divine defense” (defae moghadas) is a term coined to refer to the 8-year war Iran had with Iraq for most of the 1980s, when tens of thousands of children and young people, used as the first wave of attacks, lost their lives.

The "demand" made by Naghdi, reports Rooz, the voice of Iranian exiles, is to confront what he called the “soft war” and promote “the expansion of the culture of selflessness and martyrdom". Moreover, he expects this in educational programs, particularly from the “research and educational planning organization.”

Keep this Arab Islam and its terrorism for your self and the all the Islamic countries who are last in human development ( in every sense of the word). Islamists (like you) have no country, because Islam prohibits love of country and is based on spread of the cult (show me where in Quran it says love your country).

So if you Stateless guys want to kill yourself for Islam, and Arab Martydom, what does that have to do with Iran and Iranians.

Martydom culture as a patriotic weapon, as it was demonstrated during Iran/Iraq was by Iranian patriots is far different than terrorism and teaching datred as your country does in its schoold as the following article points out:


It is still not late to educate yourself!
