    Filmmaker emerges to bring dramas from Iran political history to life   

    “I was born during the war, which had lasted for so long that I thought that it would be forever and would never end. When I heard people talking about the frontline I imagined it was a geographical location like a sea or a forest near the borderlines of each country where the war took place. We were in our childhood, experiencing a certain way of life. We chanted slogans in the schools and talked about certain issues and heard about subjects from the media that deeply influenced our hearts and minds. Today, the experiences of those years caused me to be interested in returning to those years with new feelings and perceptions, which come from awareness, and I want to recollect the memories of those years again.”

    A good suggestion: The Alms of Century versus the Deal of Century

    TEHRAN - One of the most important goals of the Christian Zionism is to start a war for eliminating great powers and dividing vast countries into smaller ones. The number of countries before World War was less than 100, but now there are 205 countries in the world along with newly-independent ones. After the collapse of the Russian, Japanese, German, Austrian, Hungarian and Ottoman empires during WWI, the U.S., France, and Britain were victorious countries. With the Sykes-Picot Agreement (1917), which was, in fact, a confidential agreement between France and Britain benefiting from Russian support, the Ottoman Empire became Turkey. Then Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine divided between France and Britain. According to the agreement Palestine should be governed by these countries.
