Iran, pronounced Eeran NOT Eye-ran...".> Hint: Italy: Eetaly not Eye-taly. Iran has been in the region properly termed 'West Asia' -- not the 'Middle East' for thousand of years. It is heart-warming to see more and more scholars look past politics to discover Iran's contributions to science, film, and literature. One good piece of evidence is the display of Iranian artifacts in the majority of the world's museums. The term 'Middle East' is a fake term invented in the 20th century for the benefit of rationalizing British (and hence European) imperial interests. The "Islamic Civilization" is another fake term. Interesting that Western societies do not lump themselves with Koreans and Filipinos onto a single "Christian Civilization." After living and working in many countries, I have become an environmentalist. I am an independent business Professor and documentary film producer about environment and creatures in it. I have spent most of my professional life as a university Professor and as an Advisor to companies seeking to streamline their operations and to make them more efficient. My Doctorate Degree is in Quantitative Methods, Production and Operations Management. As a University Professor, I received Outstanding Professor Awards from several universities. As a film producer, I received the 'Best Foreign Film Award' from several international festivals for my documentary films, e.g., on the spider-tailed viper of Iran which it received a Panda Award from Wildscreen Film Festival in England in October 2018. The award is called Green Oscar among environmentalists. 2019 Awards: NaturVision, Deutscher Wildlife Filmpreis, Germany. 22 Gran Paradiso Film Festival, Cogne, Italy. Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species listed Spider-tailed Viper on August 27, 2019. This Convention is in Geneva, Switzerland. This action will make sure when I pass away this creature will continue to live. I welcome competition while my main goal is to educate public and protect the precious environment until I pass away. The earth belongs to all of us and sadly is in need of care. Dumping waste, especially poisonous weed killers for weeds and Crops similar to "agent orange," should be banned. Native people should not be forced out of their homes to make room for settlers who arrive from different countries. Western countries and Russia have not been punished for their crimes against humanity My professional and personal experience has convinced me that the world has become more dangerous and threatening. I have created several NGOs to protect what is left of the environment and of the creatures in it and to preserve historical heritages with emphasis on Iran's heritage and contributions to this world.

Favorite Quotes which most of them are my own summarize the way I believe: * Enlightenment is the goal of media but delusion is often its true target. * The prerequisite for peace is justice for all people and for all nations. * In the past, weapons were manufactured to fight wars, today wars are manufactured to sell weapons. * Seeking justice is meaningless if it is not translated into action. * Western societies and Russia share responsibility for the loss of free societies in many parts of the world, especially in less developed countries. Western countries, Russia and China have depleted natural resources, looted national treasures displaying them in their museums in exchange for deceptive freedom and wealth. * "Super Powers" would not be "Super Powers" if they minded their own business. * Hunting is not a sport. A real sportsman defends on his own strengths, not on a firearm. * Give a man a gun, he may kill someone; give a man a bank, he will kill those who disagree with Western countries' policies. * "A hungry man is an angry man" Illegal sanctions create hungry man. * People should not be indoctrinated with lies, only to learn the truth later. Every time a truth is told, some new understanding and tolerance between people and nations can take root. * Poor does not mean stupid. Rich does not mean civilized and smart. * The more simply I live and travel, the more I am able to experience life around the world. * The news is not as bad as you think it is; no news can be as good as you think it is. * Heaven and Hell is a concept from Zoroastrian religion which has been borrowed by other religions e.g. Islam & Christianity. To me, Heaven is the last twenty years of one's life when you can look back and smile. Hell is when you look back and suffer remorse. * Happiness isn't where you find it. Happiness is where you create it. * Rule of force has replaced the rule of law. Bombing innocent people in Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, and elsewhere must stop. * Any person with a 🔫 gun may rob a bank. Any person that owns a bank is capable of robbing the 🌎 world.

Genocide of Persians: In Memory of Persians killed. Historical books mention that 60% of world population resided in Persian territories more than 2000 years ago. One may conclude that Persia was the center of civilization where the first organized religion was established, namely Zoroastrian. This religion and its concepts have been copied by all religions, especially Judaism and Christianity.

Peace in the Persian Gulf Negotiating with Western countries will demonstrate Iranian weakness. Iranian soldiers and military strength will bring peace to the Persian Gulf.

JCPOA not a win-win strategy! After five years (2015 signing), Europe wants to preserve the JCPOA and then expand it without compensating Iran for the losses it incurred in the past years--but this approach should not be acceptable.

Crimes against Iranians One must give credit to America for de-classifying information after 50 years. CIA documents cross the names of people who are still alive. Other Western countries, especially United Kingdom are cowards. They are afraid to declassify for revealing their atrocities towards Iranians and other nations.

Regime Change - What are the common threads? The reason behind most regime changes have been countries which have refused UK/USA/France terms of their natural resources and banking systems. These Western countries start with sanctions which most violate international agreements and norms. After sanctions, military threats have been the norm. (Cases of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Bolivia, and so on.)

Historical Facts about Kurds People in Iran have lived with Kurds for several thousand years, some estimate it to be 7000 years. They eat similar food, and we have had similar celebrations for New Year (Nowruz) for thousands of years. Iranians consider Kurds Iranians. We understand their dialect. They are emotional people similar to many of us in West Asia. They have suffered, as have many of us in West Asia.

What is there to negotiate? No President - not Reagan, nor both Bush, nor Clinton, or even Jimmy Carter - thought the money the Shah paid as deposit for military weapons or investments in such companies as Pan Am belonged to America.

Yemen: Lessons to be learned. Not under any circumstances are Western sanctions, as we see against Iran and Venezuela, understandable because they have negatively affected millions of civilians (among them thousands of children and elderly) and have caused incalculable harm - the same as in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. And no one can ever justify their use. It is beyond inhuman.

Regime Change and International Laws We have witnessed similar arguments for regime change in Kosovo. We noticed similar arguments against Libya. There has been a prohibition on the use of force, Article 2 Paragraph 4 of the UN charter discusses international law. It prevails over all other international norms. There is a distinct danger of military intervention, as we know from history in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Poetry in Iranian culture It is vital for many world citizens to understand Iran's civilization. It is akin to owning a priceless treasure as long as they know the multifaceted worth of treasures. Enjoying Hafez Poetry is a double pleasure. Dick Davis on "Faces of Love" and poetry in Iranian culture

The Negative Role of Hollywood If Hollywood is upset, it might because its hero's might be out of their jobs in the near future. It is not difficult to figure out who controls the media and Hollywood, but it may be difficult for artists to realize that they have a common control group(s) at their origin and that this group wields census as control.

The Price of War Against Iran: 'Just Say No' We should say no to war on Iran. Say yes to the UN members who can search for a peaceful process to resolve international inequality of arms and lack of enforcement on all countries. IAEA and NPT regulations should not replace rule of force.
