in response to reader comment: Speculating About -Then Understanding Historical Persian Influences

The Iranian Islamic Regime appears to have the underhanded attention of the world as they pressure those who have no clue what they are dealing with into making concessions to things they have no business interfering about. If the Quran had Arabic beginnings, how is it that its mort ardent following is so heavily Persian influenced?
This forum has spent much time and discussion on this topic and has even had the answer alluded to; as such, this comes as a rhetorical musing: does the Iranian Islamic Revolution even know what it is doing?
Does the Iranian Islamic Regime believe that becoming nuclear helps its adherents achieve dominating superiority in a world that could conceivably burn Teheran to ashes in a blinding flash?
Is this what they seek to avert as they themselves stockpile only a mere fraction of nuclear material that could barely challenge the return attack that is pending towards their doom? Is this a modern rediscovery of the battle of the Greeks versus the Persians?
Does the Arabic Quran provide the necessary contention for this? Does the Arabic front of the Quran actually provide the precursor of the global antipathies that the 'Persian' influences of the Islamic Iranian mullahs is sufficient to sustain their ambition of ummah empire: when do they declare their sultanate for such dominance? Is this why Turkey now trying to make friends with Egypt and Israel due to Persian threats?
When the EU and the rest of the global powers have finally conceded to meet with the Iranian Islamic Regime, what do they believe is being negotiated? Is the intent to curb the ambition of nuclear dominance truly a reason to meet; or is concession already expected and only the amount of limitation to be agreed to?
Or, as already intimated, the true reasoning is to make complete the threat the Iranian Islamic Regime has over Israel a reality? When that does become the reality that everyone is not willing to believe does the consequences it brings become evident: then what? Reading the Quran in Arabic does not answer that, now does it?
