"campaign for erasing the lies from the history of Iran"
Alexander of Macedonia
The invasion of Alexander of Macedonia, the biggest lie in history
Rulers have existed since the beginning of human civilization. The initial civilization meaning the urban living and the creation of social class and writing began, according to some accounts around 7 to 10 thousand years ago in Mesopotamia and Iran. Nobody knows for certain whether rulers or people came first, it is the old chicken and hen story. In any case, the rulers have used different tricks to make people obey them, such as strange sects and religions, superstitions and telling and writing lies (there is a mention of this in the famous inscription of Darius the Great).
Many of such writings and inscriptions and stories are of these tricks which continue to the present day. One of the most important of them all is the invasion of Iran by Alexander the Great. The tellers of the story of Alexander of Macedonia who told his story 600 years after his death did not pay attention of the point that the main reasons in winning a war is the greater number of fighters, the supremacy of the arms used and the experience of the commanders in warfare together with a thorough knowledge of the enemy terrain and its economy. A young man from a sparsely populated land with a poor economy cannot easily rise to destroy a great Empire, confiscate the land of a brave people where in every household having a sword and arrow was a way of life, as if the enemy had come to a land of addicts and street dwellers. We see today how well equipped occupiers have run aground in their invasion, let alone in those days and……
The movie 300 that was based on the invasion of Alexander was a reason for the people of the world to discover the lies that lye behind the victories of Alexander. A good opportunity has risen to erase these lies from our sweet history. Us Iranians need to tell the truth to the world, all the false inscriptions and wars of Alexander and not just this film. It is of great surprise, how is it that Iranian historians cannot recognize these lies, the lies of the military magnitude, the false distances, the fictitious wars, the fictitious towns and cities etc. Would the Iranian historian please study these lies with due patience and a new vision and rectify them in your speeches and writings?
Where was Macedonia?
Macedonia, in old Egyptian inscriptions "Mage donia" which in Arabic became to be pronounced "Magduniye" was important centre of Mithraism in northern Africa. Yaghut Hamudi, traveller, geographer and historian in his book "Majamal baladan" says "Macedonia is the name of Egypt in the Greek language". Ibn Al Faghih Ahmad Hamedani 4th Arabic century geographer and historian quoting Ibn Yasar says,-" Macedonia is Egyptian territory". Al Moghadasi 5th Islamic century geographer in "Hosn Al Taghasim", Ibn Al khardazbeh in Dalmask and Almamalek", Masoudi in the book of Moruj Alzahb and many others confirm that in those days Macedonia was Egyptian territory. With the exception of early Islamic historians and the knowledgeable, Ibn Maghta, Tabari and Dinvari have called Alexander in their writings Iranian.
In order to understand the reasons behind the creation of the story of Alexander, its inventor's forgery, distortion, fabrication and theft that have occurred, one must pay attention to the special politics and the aims of the tyrannical religious emperors and governors ruling the eastern Roman Empire. Between the 8th and the 11th century, for three hundred consecutive years 13 Armenian men and 8 women, residents of the western part of the Halice river (today called Ghezel Irmagh) and the town of Ani (the town of the one thousand Churches) who were not from the Constantine family and had ambitions of power using the circumstances and sometimes with the help of the secret Jewish organization infiltrated Constantinople then the center of world power. These people, in order to safeguard their position, pretended to be Greek and Macedonian compiled and published the myth of Alexander with the aim of setting East and West in other words Mithraism and Christianity against each other and by doing this increase their credibility. They compiled a book about Alexander quoting his personal physician Collis Dens and extended Alexander's acquisitions as far as India and China. With the help of agents of the Abbasids they glorified Alexander in order to distance the mind of the newly risen societies from the greatness of the ancient Iranian's civilization, culture and power. The editing of the book was done in Greek which was at the time the language of the Church and became so successful that the era in which it was published became known as the era of the Greek culture. On the other hand the religion of Jesus Christ did not flourish in the Balkans until the 13th century and Mithraism dominated this region whose followers believed this religion to be a falsification and apostasy of their religion. In the written and verbal battle between these two religions, it is worth a mention of the Shahname "The book of the Kings" that is recited in divine language. Mazandaran in the times of Anushiravan Khorasani according to documents in the National Library was called Pazesh Khargar. India (Hend or End in Persian pronunciation) according to Tabari and Masoudi until the end of the 12th century was the name of Khoozestan. Seventeen places in Khoozestan such as Hendijan and Andimeshk and ….begin with this name, India used to be called Aryavarte and Baharat.
Eskandar and Sekandar,
In Iranian languages Alexandros is not Alexander which in its equivalent in Eastern languages. If one accepts that "Al" in Alexander is an article, by removing it one is left with Exander which has no resemblance to Alexanders or Alexander so one needs to search and find out the origin of Alexander and Alexanders. In the works of Albaghiye Biruni page 145 it is written,- the head of its dynasty ( the Parthians) is Ashk Ibn Ashkanwhich is the title of King Ufghufur is son to Balash Ibn Shahpour Ibn Esiktar Ibn Siyavash Ibn Kaykavoos. Biruni has named the Parthian kings as Ask Ibn Balash Ibn Sahpou Ibn Ashkan Ibn Ash Jabbar (page 147 Al Baghiyeh). Aslan Ghaffari the author of Sekandar and Dara believes that Ash Jabbar and Esiknar and such names are variations of Eskantar meaning "brave" which has changed to Eskandar.Ash Jabbar or Esiknar or according to Aslan Ghaffari's estimate Eskantar was the name of one of the Parthian's kings in 3rd century B.C who captured territory in Vararoud i.e Transoxiania and The Greater Khorasan with Nayshabour, Herat and Marv and Northern Afghanistan and was abbreviated to Eskandar and this power circle of the Parthians became subject of misuse first by the writers of Alexander of Macedonia from the Eastern Roman Empire due to inexperience and stupidity and subsequently by the Westerners in their animosity against the Iranians. Those Iranians that have Nowrooz and live in vast and ancient countries have different languages and accents but share the same culture with varying customs. Since far back, they have had to deal with enemies, beginning with Eastern Romans Imperialist culture to the present day.
Going Sekandari, - In the Greater Iran to those heroes and champions who during training and sports put their hands on the ground and their feet in the air and walk on their hands, say that they are" going Sekandar".
The enemies of Iran have lied as much as they can about the defeats of the Achaemenides and we have not even asked the very Achaemenides once about their destiny. There are 12000 stone inscriptions of Iran in the University of Ciracus in the United States and other places and we have not even a clue and don't ask for them. The Achaemenides have never said that Persepolis was a palace let alone Alexander managed to burn it down. On the stone inscription bearing the code XPD that lies in the eastern and western part of the balcony of what is famously known as the private palace of king Xerxes he says,- …at the request of Oromazes I erected this hadnish. And the word hadnish has been repeated several times in Persepolis. All is written so that the pilgrimage that visited the site would know its purpose.
Strabo the famous Greek historian considers Herodotus the biggest liar and says that like magicians he plays fool with simple people's feelings. F.N. Arski (Strabo the pioneer of the science of geography Pooyesh Publication) says that Herodotus is a liar and only fools believe him. Fokidid says that Herodotus talks without thinking and cannot be believed.
The false warships
In order to cover up their defeats, the Greeks have magnified the Iranian navy in their stories; they have talked of 2000 warships and another 2000 support frigates and commercial ships. If we compare their number and capacity to the middle sized and large boats in the Persian Gulf today they outnumber them even today! And if we suppose that the maintenance of each takes 30 days a year and the useful life of each ship is on average 20 years and the time to make one 6 months, then at one particular time there needs to be 120 boats and ships under construction in the yards. Let us assume that the capacity of each yard is 6 ships at a time which means twice the capacity of the shipping yards in Glasgow at the height of the power of the British Empire in the 18th century, which means 6 yards and as the supply of wood was in itself a huge problem, a great logistical plan would have been needed to transport wood from the North like in the era of Nadershah when he only managed to build 3 ships using the wood from the forests of the North and they quickly became unusable or there had to be a supply of wood from India. Therefore there would have been a huge number of saws and axes and other equipments and roads etc but none exists in any museum in Iran or anywhere else. You decide for yourself without prejudice the root of the story and beware that the glory of the Iranian history is not in lies, it lies in love, bravery, solidarity and love for the motherland (homeland). Let us not allow the enemies change these good attributes with their lies.
Takht – e - Jamshid and Sivand
In the images depicted in Takh-e-Jamshid, no-one is angry, nobody is mounted on a horseback, and one sees no-one bowing, there is nobody with their head down or defeated, there is no tribe superior to another, and there is no image of violence.
One of the things Iranians take pride in is the fact that slavery has never been common in Iran. Amongst hundreds of bodies carved on the stones of Persepolis, there is not even one nude. Let us tell the beloved Iranians what we were so that in remains in their memory. Over the past one hundred years Persepolis and its surroundings have been thoroughly searched and there have been findings by many different archeological groups and there has not been a false Persepolis found. The enemies have wanted to take revenge on the Iranians on paper: they have created this imaginary city to take revenge for the burning down of Athens and have been somewhat successful by taking advantage of the idiocy of some of our historians. Where there has not been a city, there has not been a capital for the Achaemenides either and because it was not a capital city therefore it did not have a fortress or an alley way for a king in order to have 3 layers of walls built around it. These lies have not been found. Which war where the Greeks the prisoners of in Takht-e-Jamshid? And how did Alexander gave them clothes in the midst of war? And many more such lies. Which idiot would believe all the lies about the taking and transport of spoils of war? The burning down of Takht-e-Jamshid by Alexander or whoever else is a big lie. The illiterate storytellers who wrote the story of the victory of the Macedonians centuries later did not have the least knowledge about Takht-e-Jamshid. They have written that the palace was built mainly out of cedar wood, this is not true. Takht-e-Jamshid was built on stone and from stone and the burning down is also false and scientifically provable to be false. Limestone is chemically Calcium carbonate CaCO3 and under one atmospheric pressure and 894 degrees Celsius by receiving 391 calories per gram is converted into 44% CO2 and 56% CaO. The CO2 gas escapes into the air which leaves the CaO. The latter is mixed with water which gives slaked lime or Ca (OH)2. This reaction liberated 280 Calories of heat. Some of the clothes, carpets and other objects found at Persepolis are not from that era and it is scientifically impossible for them to be so. Over the centuries nomads and shepherds have used that area and indeed have made fires and technically those objects belong to them. People looking for treasures have dug and looted much over the centuries, knowing the history can be a treasure for us, read and express your views!
The idiots have written that Persepolis looted and burnt down the capital of the Parsees. Persepolis is their name invented centuries after Darius like many others they invented and today it is known as Takht-e-Jamshid, nobody knows what it was called in those days and it remains to be discovered by the scientific and historic societies. Takht-e-Jamshid did not have water to be a capital, the small Sivand river flows 10 to 12 kilometers away and in those days 2500 years ago people had the intelligence not to build a dam and control the flow because the water of the river would spread over a vast plain and in the hot and dry season the evaporation rate would be high and the remaining water would become salty hence unsuitable either for drinking or for agriculture therefore only damaging the environment. In the past all capital cities were built around major rivers. Takht-e-Jamshid was a place of worship whose construction was not completed. In those days Iranian people were like God King Worshippers. It was like many other places of worship but on a larger and more glamorous scale and was never completed looted or burnt down. The intellectual evolution of humans made way for the appearance of the first religions. Their intellectuals created the Parthian. This evolution continues to date with various ups and downs and will continue until the end of humanity.
Today the important issues as far as intellectual growth is concerned are for us to think about everything and question it's validity whether it is true or not, what and how is the reality? Is every glamorous rubbish the foreigners and enemies of Iran have written true?
When I write to the schools abut their books about the fabrication of Alexander they reply that they know nothing about an alternative text! Do they doubt these lies and really give up? Do they want no one to think about the truth about Alexander? Do they want to take away the ability to think about the fabrication of history and Alexander?
In the Gospel there is no mention of Takht-e-Jamshid, however this book gives a lot of information about other buildings and sites of the Iranian empire and major cities such as Hamadan and Shush. There is no mention of it in any document of the Babylonians, Assyrians, and Phoenicians. Catusias who lived 24 years in the Iranian court does not mention it even once. This was the most sacred place in Iran, with an exclusiveness that would protect an exclusive and invisible religion away from the contamination of the outsiders. The enemies of Iran like very much telling that Takht-e-Jamshid was completely built and prosperous.
Revealing the fabricated and stupid wars
The idiots who have written against Iran and worse those who believe them have written that Alexander attacked Iran with 30000 troops and 40000 mounted soldiers via the strait of Ellis Pont, today known as Dardanelle, crossed a deep and fast river with high granite walls and fought Darius the 3rd in Asia Minor. The granite river that is today called Bighachay is a small and shallow river that has no walls. The liars are shameless, as long as there are gullible people who believe them they may continue with their lies. Moreover, the banks of this river have no place for the battle of around 150,000 men. Go and see for yourself if you do not believe this. The liar writers wanted to diminish the importance of Shush the two thousand year capital of Elam which was also the capital of the Achaemenides for 200 years and to have people believe that a partially completed shrine of Takht-e-Jamshid was the capital of Iran, then falsely have it burnt down by Alexander. Five or six centuries later when they wrote their lies, the old religion of the Achaemenides no longer existed and Takht-e-Jamshid was a deserted place. They had no idea of the distances between places and whatever they have written with respect to this is pure rubbish. It is easy to realize that it is all lies; they say 600 thousand troops of Darius crossed the bridges over the Euphrates River in 5 days, think a little! The 600 thousand is a lie, 5 days is a lie and the bridges are all lies. Everything the have made up is a lie.
The travel of Alexander from Takht-e-Jamshid to Damghan
They have written that their Alexander went from Takht-e-Jamshid to Hamadan. We analyze this lie too. In order to go from Takht-e-Jamshid to Hamadan one needs to pass through Isphahan. There is absolutely no mention of this city with its brave inhabitants in any Eskandarname i.e. document relating to Alexander. They could not have gone to Hamadan without passing through Isphahan, whoever claims otherwise is really stupid. From Isphahan to Najafabad there is a 30 kilometer length of gardens and herb plantations. This in itself is a good barrier against the attack and advance of the enemy, therefore the illiterate writers were indeed much worse than one thinks in order to destroy these gardens in cold blood, on paper. There is no mention of other cities in Isphahan either such as Golpayegan, Burujerd, Malayer. There are only made up names that have no resemblance to the names of Iranian towns and cities. There is a 480 km distance from Isphahan to Lorestan to Hamadan, the road passes through harsh mountainous terrain, almost 200 km of which has a height of 2000 meters, one of the highest roads in the world and in winter is covered with ice and snow. The road from Lorestan to Hamadan is also a mountainous road and is one of the most difficult in the world and thanks to the bravery of its people no invader has been able to cross that region in history not even the local one. It is said that the bigger a lie the easier it is believed and this is exactly the case here, they tell and the idiots believe them!
From Takht-e-Jamshid to Isphahan through to Hamadan then Rey and Damghan it is 1600 Kms see the magnitude of the lie? Or perhaps they covered this distance in fast Japanese electric trains! Abu Reyhan Biruni in Asar al baghiye has written that Darius the 3rd was killed near Erbil by the commander of his troops. At that time he knew nothing of the fabricated Alexander, the reality is the Parthian.
The fabricated Alexander of Macedonia on his way to Gorgan
If the Alexander historians wrote grandiose lies and confabulation it was their style and knew nothing about inside Iran, however, those internal and external enemies, idiots and traitors who continue the lies in speeches and writings, what could their motive be? They take Alexander from Dameghan to Gorgan with many erroneous and fabricated names of places, strange events, peoples and tribes that never existed, distances that have no bearing with the reality, please place a map in front of yourself and have a look and you will see how we have been cheated purely out of animosity and complex.
Another lie on paper
Alexander historians have created Darband of Pars on paper and have had it conquered by Alexander in order to take revenge of the defeat of the Greeks by the Iranians in Thermopylae strait, otherwise there is no strait between Shush and Takht-e-Jamshid. Over the past one hundred years Iranian including, myself and English archeologists who have searched the area for treasures and archeological evidence have found no strait. There are books written about such excavations. Many distinguished researches have written Persians or Farsiha but I would write this word more generally, I would say Iranian or Iranians because this is the name of a vast geographical region and peoples who all have the ancient Nowrooz and have all throughout history have defended Iran and continue to do so. The enemies who do not know Iran have created false heroes and the idiots are proud of them for nothing. They created a false shepherd in the harsh winter of Lorestan and never explained how those two armies survived the freezing temperatures and at the same time they created tropical forests in that region and much such nonsense. They were enemies of Iran but why do these so called Iranian historians repeat such nonsense?
Imagine historical wars as they happened in those times and not how Hollywood wants you to see them!
Illiterate and stupid enemies
1700 and 1800 years ago, the Alexander historians were far too illiterate to write their fabricated stories more believable and more stupid are the enemies of Iran who take these nonsense for history. Patala which in Persian is the "bottom of the hill" is near the strait of Boan, in their stories they refer to a river estuary in order to fabricate a document about Alexander's journey to India. Tanais River is a river between Asia and Europe which today is called the Den. In their fabrication they have said it to be in Northern Afghanistan and placed it instead of Balkh and taken Alexander to Indian, they have also written that Alexander's troops travelled from Balkh to Sogdiana and spent harsh times in the desert without water or pastor in order to depict their bravery. This also is a fabrication. The city of Balkh lies near a large river called Balkhab and there is plenty of life in a radius of 350 Km around it and not a waterless desert, you can easily see for yourself on a map. Their Oxus River is not the Amu Darya, they have written so much nonsense because they did not knew their geography and the stupid enemies of Iran believe them and maliciously repeat them all the time.
Bacchus is the Greek version of Bagh which is also called Bak, Bag, Bi and By. It is the prefix of Izad Mehr (Yazata Mehr), Bagh Mehr. Mithraism spread during the Parthian times to Rome and Greece. During Alexander's time it was not known but 500 years later Alexander historians knew about it because they were the enemies of Iran and Iranian religion like today. The Caspian gate is not the Sar Darre Khar as they claim; Dar Band Khazar is a town between Baku and Ma Khaj Ghale. They have lied in order to justify their stories. Arabius River which they claim Alexander and his men crossed in India is today's Shat Al Arab River and whatever Indian they wrote is Khuzestan. Oritiens the land of the people of Avar is a city called Magjar in Iraq and not India. Arabite is the home to the Arabs in Sothern Iraq and not the estuary of Send River in Pakistan. Dustkami which in this fabricated story is mistakenly called Dustkani is the decanter of the followers of Mithras's which is still used in mourning to serve water or sorbet and it was not known during Alexander era but 500 later during the Parthian was known. Atropat, Azarpad is a vocabulary belonging to the Sassanid's and not Achaemenides because they were not Zoroaster's. Atropat or Azarpad was the keeper of fire. Today pad is known as bod as in sepahbod or arteshbod (sepah is corps and artesh is army in Persian, translator's note). This is also evidence that the documents pertaining to Alexander were written centuries later. Azerbaijan is not the destroyed Atropatan. Azarbaijan or Azarbijan is made up of three parts: Azar meaning Fire, Bai meaning God and Jan meaning place, together the place of God Fire. They write: the troops of Alexander on their return journey to and from Sogdiana were engaged with a brave people called Momasenha. Momsen means grand. They are from the western part of the Fars province in Iran, what has it got to do with Balkh and Northern Afghanistan. They have written that Alexander got near the city of Nysa near the Send River and locate Nysa as being between Hamadan and Bistoon. Nesa was the first capital of the Parthian near Ashkhabad of Turkmenistan and Mithraism spread from there which hence became to be known as the religion of Nesa or Nesara. Nabarzan, Nabarz meaning undefeatable is a postfix of Mehr which is also used in Kurdish. Mithraism was spread to Rome during the Parthian and became the common religion. The Romans used the Iranian vocabulary of Nabarz as a postfix of Mehr (Mithra). In many of hundreds of Mithraism's shrines left over from the Roman Empire, wall inscriptions also testify against this fabricated story and the fact that it was written centuries later. The idiots who invented Alexander even defeated the Paganisms, Kusiyan or the Caspians whose rule had ended 800 years previously because they wanted Alexander to have defeated everyone! How illiterate those who today consider this history. The city of 100 gates is not Dameghan, where on Earth was its water in order to have 100 gates? Different groups of archeologists searched that areas for years and not even found a city of one gate! They talked all that grandiose nonsense in order to raise the importance of their fairy hero, do you get me?
The evidence against continues! The lying storytellers who were illiterate and knew nothing about geography created Alexander in order to inflate the importance of an insignificant and indigent people of Greece. The Alexander historians who were a bunch of illiterate liars who didn't know geography created the myth of Alexander with all those mistakes, not knowing that 2000 years later Anush Ravid would reveal the untruth. They defeated and toppled by their Alexander all the countries and peoples who they had heard of in those days, they told much hype and lies which is easily recognizable and whoever that doesn't understand it is a real fool. They created hundreds of false names none of which has Iranian or Indian root and it is all too obvious.
