Response to Gracchi with many thanks!

I would be shocked if the Islamic Repbulic was not involved anywhere with a muslim community...Hope this helps.

The Islamic Army at the gates of Tisphoon:

636 The Arabs defeat the Iranians at Qadisia. 637 . The Arabs take Ctesiphon (Tisphoon).Tisphoon was burnt by the Arabs to the ground including all of its historical sites, libararis, and records.

Today's Islamic troubles really all began at this point in history.English text and Farsi link thanks to Allan Peters.

Text of the ultimatum from Omar Ibn-Khat'tab the Calif of Islam to the Iranian Sovereign Yazdgerd III]

Bism-ellah Ar'rahman Ar'rhim
To the Shah of the Farsi.
Do not foresee a good future for you and your nation without your acceptance of my terms and your submission to me.There was a time when your country ruled half the world, but see how now your sun has set.On all fronts your armies have been defeated and your nation is condemned to extinction.I point out to you the path whereby you might escape this fate. Namely, that you begin worshipping the one god, the unique deity, the only god who created all that is. I bring you his message.Order your nation to cease the false worship of fire and to join us, that they may join the truth. Worship Allah the creator of the world.Worship Allah and accept Islam as the path of salvation. End now your polytheistic ways and become Muslims that you may accept Allah-u-Akbar as your saviour. This is the only way of securing your own survival and the peace of your Persians.You will do this if you know what is good for you and for your Persians.Submission is your only option.Allah u AkbarThe Calif of Muslims Omar Ibn-Khat'tab

[What follows is response of the Persian King.]

In the name of Ahura Mazda the Creator of Life and Wisdom.From the Shahan-Shah of Iran, Yazdgerd.

To Omar Ibn Khat'tab the Arab Calif.

In your letter you summon us Iranians to your god whom you call "Allah-u-Akbar"; and because of your barbarity and ignorance, and without knowing who we are and Whom we worship, you demand that we seek out your god and become worshippers of "Allah-u-Akbar".How strange that you occupy the seat of the Arab Calif but are as ignorant as any desert roaming Arab!You admonish me to become monotheistic in faith.Ignorant man, for thousands of years we Aryans have, in this land of culture and art, been monotheists and five times a day have we offered prayers to God's Throne of Oneness.

While we laid the foundations of philanthropy and righteousness and kindness in this world and held high the ensign of "Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds", you and your ancestors were desert wanderers, who . . . buried your innocent daughters alive. How dare you Arabs who have no regard for God's creatures, who mercilessly put people to the sword, who mistreat your women and bury your daughters alive, who attack caravans and are highway robbers, who commit murder, who kidnap women and spouses, presume to preach the worship of God to us, who are above these evils?You tell me to cease the worship of fire and to worship "Allah-u-Akbar" instead! We Iranians are by the light of fire reminded of the Light of God.The radiance and the sun-like warmth of fire exuberates our hearts, and the pleasant warmth of it brings our hearts and spirits closer together, that we may be philanthropic, kind and considerate; that gentleness and forgiveness may become our way of life,and that thereby the Light of God may shine on in our hearts.Our God is the Great Ahuramazda. . . .

We are nothing like you.We, in the name of Ahuramazda, practice compassion and love and goodness and righteousness and forgiveness, and care for the dispossessed and the unfortunate.But you, in the name of your "Allah-u-Akbar" commit murder, create misery and subject people to suffering! Tell me truly who is to blame for your misdeeds?Your "Allah-u-Akbar" who orders genocide, plunder and destruction, or you who do these things in his name? Or both?You, who have spent all your days in brutality and barbarity, have now come out of your desolate deserts resolved to impose, by the blade and by conquest, the worship of "Allah-u-Akbar" on a people who have for thousands of years been civilizedand have relied on culture and knowledge and art as mighty supports.

What have you, in the name of your "Allah-u-Akbar", taught these armies of Islam besides destruction and pillage and murder that you now presume to summon others to your "Allah-u-Akbar"?Today, my people's fortunes have changed. Their armies, who were subjects of Ahuramazada, have now been defeated by the Arab armies of "Allah-u-Akbar".And they are being forced, at the point of the sword, to convert to the god by the name of"Allah-u-Akbar" and offer him prayers in Arabic since your Arabic god only understands Arabic.I advise you to return to your lizard infested deserts. Do not let loose upon our cities your cruel barbarous Arabs who are like rabid animals.Refrain from the murder of my people.Refrain from pillaging my people.Refrain from kidnapping our daughters in the name of your "Allah-u-Akbar".Refrain from these crimes and evils.We Aryans are a forgiving people, a kind and well-meaning people. Wherever we go, we sow the seeds of goodness, amity and righteousness. And this is why we have the capacity to overlook the crimes and the misdeeds of your Arabs.Stay in your desert with your "Allah-u-Akbar", and do not approach our cities; for horrid is your belief and brutish is your conduct.

Yazdgerd Saasaani
Shahshah of the Persian Empire
For the Farsi text click on this link:

P.S. In less than 100 years, Muslim warriors conquered lands for Islam from Persia to Spain. Muslims then pushed further into Europe. Their incursion into Western Europe was stopped in France. Their invasion from the east was finally halted at the gates of Vienna
