Not even our ancestors’ skeletons are spared

From the Islamic Republic’s own ISNA:

“Criminals looting the cemetery in northern Persepolis. Government doing nothing.”

I couldn't help remembering this bit of flattery from an article published last month :

“But the revolutionary government, even at its most militantly theocratic, would never have countenanced such vandalism. The ayatollahs are no Taliban, and most Iranians, whose sense of national identity has survived countless upheavals, retain a deep sense of pride in ancestors who successfully forged history's first world empire.”

Kuroshe Bozorg,
Shahe Iran,
Shahe Shahan,

Asoodeh bekhaab ke ma boroonmarziha “petition” emza mikonim!
