The Islamic regime is to submerge part of Iran's past in a shameful historical cleansing, in order to avoid facing more nationalistic problems with future generations. The construction of a very controversial dam project is near completion and soon, the tomb of "Cyrus the Great" and "Persepolis" would be submerged under water. Cyrus the Great (580-529 BC) (known as Kourosh in Persian; Kouros in Greek; Kores in Hebrew) was the first Achaemenian Emperor and founder of Iran, who issued a decree on his aims and policies, later hailed as his charter of the rights of nations. Inscribed on a clay cylinder, this is known to be the first declaration of Human Rights, and is now kept at the British Museum. A replica of this is also at the United Nations in New York. It's believed that the Islamic regime's decision to destroy Cyrus' tomb is due to clerics' fear of what he did represent and the increase of nationalistic sentiments among Iranians. These fears have been boosted as more Iranians are turning from Islam and especially following the news on the future release of a British-US movie on the life of Cyrus the Great. The un-Iranian Islamic regime and its propaganda machine have already labeled the movie as a US-Zionist conspiracy intending to undermine Islam. The independent 80 million dollars budget movie is to be made outside Iran. The dogmatic Islamist clerics are considering as pagan anything related to Iran of before the Islamic invasion of 14 centuries ago and a direct threat to their backwarded and barbarian ideology. The Islamists have shown, at several occasions,, their animosity about ancient Iran and are considering it as something 'dirty' while ancient Iran was monotheist and was following Zoroaster guidances of "Good Thought, Good Deed, Good Speak". No slavery was existing in Iran of that time, while Arab conquerors were killing or taking as slave all those who were not accepting the Islamic religion. Many theologists believe that the Abrahamic religions are all inspired from Zoroastrianism. It's to note that the Islamic republic regime is usurping Iran's chair at the UN and it's a member of UNESCO.
