Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Are there Persians in Iran?

    Azeri Turks Views:

    The name Persia is a misunderstanding by the Western historians. Iran was always called Iran zamin (Land of Iran) and people in Iran are Iranians and not Persians. Iranian and Persian are the same thing. There are no Persians in Iran. Persian is only a language. There are no such people in Iran. All the people in Iran are "Iranian".

    Persian Views:
    Iranian and Persian are not the same thing. Yes. Iran has been called Iranzamin (the Land of Iran) or Iranshahr (Iran City). Possibly limited areas of Iran were called these names. Ferdowsi's book from 1000 years ago mentions IranZamin or The Land of Iran. But people of Iran were not called "Iranians". They were called Sogdians,Parthians, Baktrians,Khorasanis, Khuzis, Persians, Medes etc. Also different parts of Iran were called Pars,Parthia,Bactria, Sogdia, Khorasan, Media etc. We rarely see the term Iran or IranShahr or IranZamin used to describe these parts.

    I don't think that the moderators should allow our Armenian Forum to be high-jacked and used as a base for silly propoganda against Iran and the Iranian people.

        of course theres Persians in Iran. Persians are Iranians, everyone else is a minority. In fact theres 2 types of persians, Persian by ethnicity, and Persian as another name for Iranian since Iran can still be called Iran or Persia. Therefore anyone born in Iran or any citizen of Iran, be they Azeri, Armenian, xxxx even Nigerian is still considered an Iranian and a Persian.

          No. That is not how it is used. Azeri Turks use Iranian. Ethnic persians use Persian. But this debate is about the origin of Iranian nationalism. You should visit the link and read about it. Iranian is a modern term which has no historical value.

            There was no "Iranian label" covering all the ethnic groups of Iran. "Iranian" is a modern creation and points to all the citizens of Iran of any ethnic race. The term "Iranian" has no historical and ethnic significance.

            Persian history states that Persians built the Persian Empire. Parthians defeated the Greek Army of Alexander after Alexander the Great death in Babylon and saved Persia from Greek invaders. Alexander the Great could not defeat the Bactrians. Alexander the Great married a Persian princess, Roxxana from Sogdia. There was a Persian Empire and a Parthian Empire. But there was never any "Iranian Empire" in Persian history.

            Persian history never states that "Iranians" did this or that as Azeri Turks imaginary history claims.

            Replacing the term Persian with "Iranian" Azeri Turks are trying to include themselves in some imaginary history of Persia when Azeri Turks did not even live in Iran. Azeri Turks presence in Iran is mainly from 15 century A.D. The purpose of all this is to prove that there was no Persian Empire and it was an "Iranian Empire". And Azeri Turks are "Iranians" and are inheritors of history and traditions of "Iranian Empire" as Azeri Turk Shirin Ebadi claims.

            Azeri Turk Shirin Ebadi the Nobel Peace Prize winner claims in a speech when receiving the Nobel Prize in Oslo, Norway:

            "I am an Iranian and a descendant of Cyrus the Great Iranian Empire!!!!!"

              haha you're not getting it. Persias name was changed to Iran officially in 1935. In 1955 it was officialy changed again so taht Persia and Iran can me used interchangebly. So it doesnt matter ur ethinicity, if u are a citizen of Iran/Persia, no matter what ur ethnicity u are an Iranian and a Persian.

                Formally Yes. But in reality it is not used that way. If an Azeri Turk claim he is Persian, he will get a strange look from Persians. So Azeri Turks say that they are Iranian. Iranian means simply the citizen of Iran. It does not have ethnic significance. In Iran you have to be Persian to say you are Persian. A Kurd will never say he is Persian. A Kurd says he is Kurd.

                    No. You are wrong. American people are not so dumb not to know what country is Persia.
