American Thinker: Islamist jihadists have advanced by invading country after country with the sword of Islam. The invasion of Iran was only the start of the tenacious scourge of Islam. Slaughtering people by the hundreds of thousands left the remainder of Iranians little choice but to convert to the creed of this cult of violence. Millions converted to Islam at the point of the sword, and a few hundred thousand brave souls circled the wagon, so to speak, and held firm to their creed of light – the Zoroastrian faith. For centuries, the Zoroastrians paid heavily in all manner under the rule of converted Muslims; many were forced to leave for other lands such as India, while still others were driven out of their habitat to marginal parts within Iran.
Those who moved to India are called Parsees, an exclusive minority in India who are revered and respected. They don’t ask for handouts; they give to charity. They don’t ask for jobs; they provide jobs to millions. They came to India as refugees. They lived in harmony with their hosts as sugar dissolves in milk. They educated themselves, created wealth, supported their own community, and helped others as well.
Now contrast them with Muslims. They came as looters and plunderers. They ruled us for centuries, during which they oppressed other religions with brute force. They were always in conflict with their hosts, cutting off the hand that fed them! They detested any other kind of education, barring reading the Quran. read more
