December 5, 2015 Comments Off on The REAL sons (and daughters) of the Sunnis of Iran
Do you see these little innocent gorgeous children?
They are the TRUE Sons (and Daughters) of the Sunnis of Iran. They are Balochis, an ancient Iranic people, Sunnis to the bones, notorious all over Iran for their good character, bravery and religiosity. They are also from among – if not the most – deprived children and people of Iran, being guilty of two crimes, first benign Sunni and second being of non ethnic Persians ethnicity, but by Allah who raised the seven heavens, the rotten Rafidi Safavi clergy of Qom with their wasteful shrines and golden domes envy nothing more but these kids. These proud people who despite all the injustice that they’ve faced have never lost their faith and have never been broken by the authorities (despite decades of Shia missionary work in Irwnian Sunni areas) so much that Iranian Shias themselves admit that the average Iranian Sunni is a thousand time more religious and attached to Islam than the Iranian Shiites who despite all the efforts of the Safavi regime is known around the world as the most irreligious and often even straight apostate Islam
December 2, 2015 Comments Off on The Persian Sunni Muslim Samanid Empire
The Samanid dynasty (Persian: سامانیان, Sāmāniyān), also known as the Samanid Empire (819–999). It was the first native Persian empire after Arabs ruled Persia for around 300 years. This first ever Persian empire after the Muslim conquest by Caliph ‘Omar Ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) was not just Muslim but Sunni to the core. The Samanids ruled in Khorassan and Transoxiana. During the era of the Abbasids they ruled as Amirs of Khorasan, appointed by the Abbasid Caliph in Baghdad. The Samanids were of Persian dehqan origin with roots stemming from Balkh (to this day a majority Persian-Tajik area in Afghanistan) in present-day northern Afghanistan.They claimed descent from the House of Mihran, high nobility of the Sassanian and Parthian (ancient Khorassan) empires conquered by the Muslims.

She received her master’s in Education from UCLA, where her research focused on the effects of mentorship rooted in CriticalRace Theory for urban high school students of color.

June 12, 2015 Comments Off on Bandar Abbas (Hormozgan) – A traditional majority Sunni city
In previous posts and articles we have shown that not all Sunni Iranians are of non-Persian (like Baloch, Kurdish etc.) ethnic backround. In fact vast landscapes of Iran are still inhabited by ethnic Persians, including unsuspected areas such as the outskirts of Mashad and and in general many towns in the Khorassan province of Iran (where Khorrassani Persian Sunnis represent a significant minority) and of course the southern provinces of Iran such as the Fars province (most towns south of Shiraz in the Fars province are majority Persian and Sunni) and the Bushehr (Abu Shahr) and Hormozgan province. The people in the southern part of the Fars province speak an ancient Persian dialect called Achomi.
