So, the Persians willingly gave up their centuries old culture, 3 dynasties, land, autonomy, and Zoroastrianism for Islam ¿!? You sir are NUTS.

Let me introduce you to Philip the Arab:

Now take a look at his visage.

Let me guess, Are you one of those african-american beguiled by Mohammedan missionaries into thinking Islam is the religion of blacks? I have bad news for you:

http://www.islamreview.com/articles/neitherblacknorafrican.shtml

In Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1 no. 63, we read "while we were sitting with the Prophet, a man came and said, "who amongst you is Mohammed?" We replied, "this white man reclining on his arm..."

In volume 2 Hadith no. 122 refers to Mohammed as a "white person" and in vol. 2 Hadith no. 141 we are told that when Mohammed raised his arms, "the whiteness of his armpits became visible."

BTW, Mohammed sent letters to the Persian and Roman (Byzantine) Emperors asking them to surrender to Islam:

Tabaqat-i Kubra, vol. I, page 360; Tarikh-i Tabari, vol. II, pp. 295, 296; Tarikh-i Kamil, vol. II, page 81 and Biharul Anwar, vol. XX, page 389

"In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful. From Muhammad, the Messenger of God, to the great Kisra of Iran. Peace be upon him, who seeks truth and expresses belief in God and in His Prophet and testifies that there is no god but God and that He has no partner, and who believes that Muhammad is His servant and Prophet. Under the Command of God, I invite you to Him. He has sent me for the guidance of all people so that I may warn them all of His wrath and may present the unbelievers with an ultimatum. Embrace Islam so that you may remain safe. And if you refuse to accept Islam, you will be responsible for the sins of the Magi."

The Mohammedans besieged Constantinople itself but the Romans fought back and repelled the Arabs although losing the provinces of Syria and Egypt to them.

Persia, weakened after being defeated by Heraclius, situation worsened by the murder of emperor Chosroes II by his own son, couldn't withstand the Arab invasion and fell around 640 C.E.

Here, read about the Persian heroes who fought against the slavery brought by the Mohammedan Arabs to Iran: http://www.panaryan.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2752

"Today when the Mullahs and Ayatollahs rule Iran, we might tend to think that they have always been characteristic of Iran. Not many know that Iran was the first nation that waged a short but bloodied campaign of battles with the Jihadi hounds that were unleashed on an unsuspecting world by Mohammed. "Educate yourself on the Arab slave trade:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_slave_trade#Slave_markets_and_fairs

The Arab slave trade refers to the practice of slavery in West Asia, North Africa and East Africa. The trade mostly involved North and East Africans and Middle Eastern peoples (Arabs, Berbers, Persians, etc.), while others such as Indians played a relatively minor role in comparison. Also, the Arab slave trade was not limited to people of certain color, ethnicity, or religion. In the early days of the Islamic state—during the 8th and 9th centuries—most of the slaves were Slavic Eastern Europeans (called Saqaliba), people from surrounding Mediterranean areas, Persians, Turks, other neighbouring Middle Eastern peoples, peoples from the Caucasus Mountain regions (such as Georgia and Armenia) and parts of Central Asia (including Mamluks), Berbers, and various other peoples of often predominatly Caucasoid origins as well as those of Black African origins. Later, toward the 18th and 19th centuries, slaves were increasingly mainly coming from East Africa.

According to Robert Davis[1] [2] between 1 million and 1.25 million Europeans were captured by North African Barbary pirates, vassals of the Ottoman Empire, during the Ottoman invasions of Europe and Ottoman-Habsburg wars, and sold as slaves between the 16th and 19th centuries. These slaves were captured mainly from seaside villages from Italy, Spain, Portugal and also from more distant places like France or England, the Netherlands, Ireland and even Iceland and North America.
