A comment in Arutz Sheva

I placed the following comment under THIS opinion piece in Arutz Sheva. I don't know if they'll publish it, but they have kindly allowed me to leave comments of somewhat similar nature in the past.

The president of the Islamic Republic (what you refer to as “Iran”) is a lunatic, like his smiling predecessor, Mullah Khatami. "Ignorant" is the author of this article, and Edwin Black.

He writes, "History remembers that in 1935, the name Iran superseded that of Persia." Consult with any historian of your choice, ANY, and you’ll learn that Iran has been Iran for thousands of years. The name change in question refers to Iran’s request that OTHER COUNTRIES call Iran by its actual name. Funny how you note this “name change” to fit it into your revision of history, but fail to see the significance of the Islamists’ actual changing of the name Iran to “the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

Furthermore, the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company may have contributed to the rise of the Third Reich, but the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company was a BRITISH controlled company; it was not controlled by Iranians. Anyone even slightly familiar with the events that led to the nationalization of Iranian oil would know that.

Khorshid, from Sarbazekuchak blog.

To the readers of this blog:

Dear readers, I don’t have to remind you of the countless number of articles written by self-proclaimed “Mossadeghists” who attack our institution of Monarchy, day and night, for the events in 1953, following the nationalization of Iranian oil under Dr. Mossadegh’s initiative and under the supervision of our King, Mohamad Reza Shah Pahlavi. Where are they now? Why are they silent? Do THEY not know that the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company was a BRITISH controlled company?
