"an anti-Semitic group called the Aryan Nations, and Hitler himself spoke about the Aryans. And that Iranian President, does he not act as an Aryan President who wants to kill all Jews? >The totalitarian form of government, the anti-Jewish outlook and the name Iran (read Aryan) all point to the same direction. All the clues lead to Nazi Germany. Iran was named after the Aryans."

You are getting history back to the front. Aryas are the vedic people and their descendents like the present day Hindus. Due to half-backed European scholorship in the 19th century (which has been given up now), this was mixed up with the presumed Indo-germanic people (which is only a speculation), and this is what Hitler and company were going on about.

I hope you give up the notions of aryan=Nazis, etc. That is all 19th/20th century myths, now given up.

A proud arya
