Persian Immortal Short Spearman Attack

Let us define them:

Persian Immortals Achaemenid Soldiers
Immortals were the elite special forces of the Persian Empire. Immortals were on and off, mostly an active group in the Persian Military History since the Achaemenid Empire (559 BC - 330 BC) all the way to the Pahlavi Kingdom (1925 - 1979).

Persian Takabara Achaemenid Soldiers
Takabara were Achaemenid Persian Empire’s tough heavy-duty infantry units. Takabara were well skilled beyond the regular infantry.

Persian Imperial Guards Achaemenid Soldiers
Imperial Guards were the close circle of Immortals surrounding and protecting the Shahanshah (Persian Emperor) and the Royal Family. Imperial Guards were on and off, mostly an active group in the Persian Military History since the Achaemenid Empire (559 BC - 330 BC) all the way to the Pahlavi Kingdom (1925 - 1979).

Persian Army Achaemenid Soldiers
Achaemenian Army once protected and expanded the soul superpower on Earth, the mighty Persian Achaemenid Empire (559 BC - 330 BC). Persian Achaemenid Empire was just and allowed dominated nations and people to remain in their own faiths and practice their own cultures. Persian Achaemenid Empire was the original Federal System on Earth. There existed no Slavery in the Persian Achaemenid Empire.

My Duty to Protest and Serve the Persian Culture

Folks,

My duty is to keep the Persian Culture Alive.
My job is to Protest and Serve the Persian Culture.

Thus, I am here once again to fulfill my national duty to Iran and Iranians.
This one goes to the Persian History Buffs, All Lovers of Iran and Friends of Iran.
To be Persian does not necessarily mean to be born in Iran.
To be Persian does not even mean to be born in all the Ex States of Iran and today’s fabricated independent nations by Britain and Russia such as:
Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Iraq and so on … all of these so-called countries have no identity but the Iranian identity.

To be Persian, you do not have to be born in Iran and Vicinity.

Greek Persian Citizens of the Persian Empire were some of the bravest warriors amongst the 100 different races of the Persian Empire.

To be Persian, is a State of Mind and a State of Heart!

You can be born anywhere in the world but as long as Iran is on your mind and in your heart, then you are Persian. All Lovers of Iran, Persian History, Persian Poetry, Persian Culture and Persianhood are Persians.

We are Persians, Not Muslims!

You can’t shove Islam down intelligent people’s throats. Persians are way too intelligent to be forced to become Muslims. Muhammad designed Quran, Hadith and Islam for Arab Bedouin residing in Arabian Deserts of the Arabian Peninsula! We have 8000 years of Civilization. We are Mother Civilization of Earth. We are too advance, too intelligent and too free to become Muslims and to live under Islam. They have been trying to shove Islam down our throats, now for over 1400 years, but unsuccessful they have been, because the resistance continues until this day!

Today, due to extreme oppression of IRI (Islamic Republic of Iran), there exists a massive population of Persians abroad. After all, no educated and independent free individual can live under Islam and the Islamic Shari’a Law.

As the results of the illegitimate occupation of Iran via AIOG (Arabo Islamic Occupational Government), it has been about 4 decades that Persians have fled Iran to live in exile, simply because there is no room for Freemen and Free-Women in an Islamic Ruled country.

Iranians are one of the most educated and intelligent technocrats and professional people around the world. They could have served working for their own country but now for about four decades, they have been blooming the economy, business, medical science, computer science, aerospace engineering and technology of America, Europe and other nations. After all, how can a free human being work and live under Islam?!

Iranian Population Inside and Outside Iran

The IRI occupation of Iran and migration of the Persians abroad, specifically to the USA, has made us decide to come up with the “Persian Cultural Month” (Month of March).

Why I Use Persian Imperial Year (PIY) Iranian Calendar?

You may ask, why do I always start my articles and books, related to “Persian Cultural Month” with the PIY (Persian Imperial Year) Shahanshahi Calendar?

The answer is simple: I am no Monarchist and Shahanshahi Calendar has nothing to do with Monarchy; however, Shahanshahi Calendar has everything to do with being Persian.

I am Persian. I am not Muslim. You cannot be Persian and Muslim both, thus they contradict each other and they have antagonistic conflict of identity with each other. I am not Arabo-Muslim, but I am Persian.

My Calendar and every Iranian Nationalist’s Calendar cannot be based on Arabo-Islamic Events.

Hejri Qamari is a Sunni based Calendar according to Hejrat (movement) of Muhammad from Mecca to Medinah, and in accordance to the lunar positions. This Calendar is a Tazi based system.

Hejri Shamsi is a Shiite based Calendar according to Hejrat (movement) of Muhammad from Mecca to Medinah, and in accordance to the Solar position. This Calendar is a Tazi based system.

We are Aryan, Persian at least majority are! We are not Tazi nor our culture is inferior to Tazi, neither we should copy and follow Tazi based Calendar System.

My calendar base is 559 BC, Coronation of Cyrus The Great, beginning of the First Persian Empire (1st Pars). As of this date Persian Kingdom became Persian Empire.

Start Date of the Persian Empire by Cyrus the Great is my calendar base.

Why Persian Imperial Year (PIY) Iranian Calendar?

Why Change Persian Alphabet from Tazi to Latin?

Neveshtar-e Parsi be Latin

Today’s Iranians are not Yesterday’s Persians

Today’s Iranians are not Yesterday’s Persians and that is why Iran is a mess!

Iranians worship Dead Arabs who raped their mothers, murdered their fathers and took their sisters and brothers as concubines and slaves to Mecca!

Iranians surely know Muhammad, Ali, Hassan, Hussein and the rest of these Arab Bandits and Murderers, but do they know their own heroes who fought and died for Iran?

Do you know Cyrus the Great?

Do you know Ferdowsi?
Reviver of the Persian Language?

Do you know Yaqub Leis Saffarid?
Reviver of the Persian Culture?

Do you know what it means to be Persian?
Do you know Iran?

Iran or Persia? Iranian or Persian? Farsi or Persian?
Country, People and Language, Which is Correct and Why?

Above are the reasons that I am writing this piece. My duty to Iran and Iranians is to keep the Persian Culture Alive. This is exactly what I am doing.

In this ceremony, Ahuramazda or Anahita grants the Ring of Power to Shahanshah (Persian Emperor). The Shahanshah (Emperor) or Shahbanu (Empress) is not the legitimate ruler of the empire until he or she granted the Ring of Power.
