You our dear Sayed? You and Iran and to paraphrase what you wrote:
You our dear sayed and the rest of the people of Iran are victims of Islam and Arabian imperialism.
The great people of Iran have no like for the ignorant arabs and were dragged into islam but they still hold onto their great language and opted for Shi3a Islam as they did not want to be sunni like the Arabs. But the ultimate insult to the Arabs and arabian imperialsim is that according to Ali Dashti 70% of al-3ulum al-islamiya were written by Iranians and not by the ignorant arabs. In other wrods it was the Iranians that shaped Islam and not the ignorant arabs.
And can you imagine the Arabic language without the work of the likes of Sibawayhe or without the Nestorian Huenin ibn Ishaq?
So what were the Arabs doing in the meantime? They were doing what they always did: loot, destroy, rape, enslave, collect jizya and tell everyone that this is the wish of their Arabian god Allah.
Cutlure, learning and art? This was not on the agenda of the arabs!
So much for Arabian imperialism and for islam.
