Reader comment on item: How Israel Can Win
in response to reader comment: Iran is Aryan

Submitted by A.B. (Canada), Dec 30, 2012 at 16:54

... the saviour of Jewish people was also an Iranian; King Cyrus the Great who saved the Jews from annihilation was the king of Persia, an Iranian - hence an Aryan,

The Babylonians regarded King Cyrus as "The Liberator", After his conquest of Babylon, Cyrus the Great authorized, encouraged and supported the return of Jews to the land of Israel, and for that, Cyrus is addressed in the Jewish Tanakh as the "Lord's Messiah". Glorified by Ezra, and by Isaiah, According to Jewish history,; Cyrus is the one to whom "Yahweh, the God of heaven" has given "all the Kingdoms of the earth".

It's important to remind your jewish readers that Iranians have been the saviours of the Jewish people for thousands of years; from the time of Cyrus to Hitler's occupation of Europe, iranians have always supported the jewish people.

[don't] ... forget to mention this important historical fact - so fundamental to the Jewish identity.
