Iranian Islamic Regime Modern Claim to Ancient Persian (Aryan) Empire?

Reader comment on item: Iran Is More than Persia

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 7, 2021 at 14:15

Modern day Iran, or dependent upon how one may determine the existence of a national entity that is as composite as say, the United States, one must understand that as America was formed from a ideological premise of governance predicated upon Judeo-Christian principles, the Iranian Islamic Regime was formed from a resurgent practice of Islam that is regaining its ideological strength that came as a replacement religious practice that overtook Persia after a period of the spread of the message of Yeshua from Jerusalem, long before the Persian influences in translating the Quran from Aramaic to Arabic to its present form today covered over the Christian message. Interesting that as the Iranian Islamic Regime appears to be the primary 'defender' of Islam, that its own ideology is still trying to replace the message of love of Christ: and why do they continue the struggle? What is the modern message of the Iranian Islamic Regime that it cannot hide from its ancient past? Who brought the original message of Yeshua to Persia before Islam came to replace it?
Even in modern Iran, that message is still there in spite of the Iranian Republican Guard's continued attempts to replace it.
