I hate Iranian Nazis.

[getting that out of the way…]

At first it was funny to me, when I saw neo-nazis springing up in places that had no real historical connection to the original nazi movement, like in the United States, for instance. That was until I realized that at its core nazism was the creative and unscrupulous propagandist distortion of history for racist, chauvinistic aims…

Some Iranians are quite proud of their Aryan heritage, though not because of its links to Nazism—they just hate the idea of having Arab blood. There’s an old Persian rhyme that goes:

Sag-e Isfahan ab-e yakh mikhorad;
Arab-e biyaban malakh mikhorad.

The dog of Isfahan drinks ice water;
The Arab of the desert eats locusts.

It loses a lot of its sneering haughtiness in translation, but you get the picture.

Anyway, mixing Aryan pride with with Nazism & religion for political purposes could get really ugly, really fast. Very toxic cocktail.

If you google the Farsi word “ariyaii” (Aryan) in actual Farsi text you get about 218K results. That’s not to say that all of them are related to some sinister meaning of the word, I’m just noting that it brings up a lot of stuff.

I can’t seem to copy & paste the Farsi text into the comments here without the letters separating, but if you go to farsidic.com and translate “Aryan” from English to Farsi—it’ll be the first word on the right in the results and looks like this—you should be able to copy & paste it into the Google search box intact yourself.

Heh, not that it’ll do you much good as all the results with be in Farsi or Dari (and it looks like a few in Pashto), but it might be an interesting experiment if you start clicking around. I used to speak a little Farsi, and can still read it, but I haven’t used it in a long time so my vocabulary has shrunk to almost nil.
