to be frank, i dunno why you waste your time rationalizing with these jokers. they only understand one language. but on your point on why did persians not take to arabic inspite being islamicized. one reason could be that persia has dominated that region up till Greece, after fall of Babylonian, Mesopotanian n Assyrian states. Persians think of arabs as inferior. the whole shiite bs of ali and hussein was basically support of persians towards anti-arabism. but its all very complicated indeed.

no one in the east of tigris was conscious of any fanatic 'religious' thing. so they didnt know what hit them. even in India, ppl took a long time to realise that. but persia is surely the saddest tragedy in history. probably more tragic than indian experience. hope remaining zoroasters start a nationalist movement. they can take clue from zionist ideology. anyways, average persians are not morons. they are not practising muslims and they take pride in their culture and heritage. the court of cyrus and darius sans the jokers of ali need to happen in persia.
