I'm leaving for Iran in a day (which could also mean this blog will not be updated for a while)...
Since that's all I have to say in this post, I'll post this old but funny Persian version of the famous Molson Canadian commercial from a few years ago...
I am Iranian
O, I am not a terrorist nor a wife beater, I don't live in a tent in a desert and camels are not our way of transportation (we drive cool European cars like Peugeot 206).
I speak Farsi, not Arabic (they don't even have the same roots)
Iran is pronounced "EERAUN" and not "I - ran" (it's not track & field, got that pisses me off)
News flash: Iran and Iraq are two different countries; Middle East is a region and NOT a continent (it's all in Asia).
Belly dancers are NOT strippers (no sex in the Champaign room; anyways, belly dancing is an Arabic dance, it never came from Iran! although they do hire Arab dancers in Persian restaurants in Canada).
Each time you play a game of chess to improve your intellect, keep in mind that it was Persians who gave you your game.
Iranian women are just as outspoken (if not more) and liberal as the European women (and more than North American women).
And what the hell is "soccer"?? We also call it Football like every one in the word (except Americans).
Cyrus the great is the one who started "Human Rights"
Allow me to introduce myself:
I AM A PERSIAN. MY LAND IS IRAN!
