Berlin Exhibition of Pre-Islamic Persian Antiquities Presented as Islamic Art


The Pergamon Museum in Germany interviewed Stefan Weber, director of the Islamic Art Museum and Ute Franke, professor at Frei University of Berlin, in a video produced by Pejman Akbarzadeh / Persian Dutch Network in March 2017. This is highly unusual. Since Arabs haven’t even been in Iran, the director of Islamic Art Museum describes the pre-Islamic monuments as Islamic art.

Taq Kasra, or Ctesiphon, which its history goes back to around 2000 years ago, is cited as the world’s largest brickwork vault. It was a palace in Ctesiphon (Mada’in) and one of the most magnificent monuments of Sasanian Persia, but it was destroyed by savages from the Arabian Peninsula.

“Arab Muslims Destroyed Ctesiphon Library and burned all Persian books. The book burnings started, they practically burned all the books in the glorious world famous Persian Library of Ctesiphon. The Persian documented history, science, literature, poetry, music and scripture of centuries and millennium were burned to ashes by Arabo-Muslims. The only book needed in Islam is the Quran, so they burned everything else! The book burnings continued for days and weeks!”

The Sasanian Empire was the last pre-Islamic Persian empire, founded in 224 CE by Ardeshir I, son of Papak, descendant of Sasan. The Empire lasted until 651 CE, when it was overthrown by the Arab caliphate. It is considered by the Iranian people to be a highlight of their civilization, for after the fall of the Achaemenid Empire at the hands of Alexander the Great in 330 BCE until the fall of the Parthian Empire, there was not to be another state that truly felt “Iranian.”

The Islamic director of the German Museum continues: “How did Islamic cultures and Islamic art arise? Where do their roots lie? Like the Islamic religion itself, Islamic art also built on its predecessors in the Middle East. Focusing on Ctesiphon, a vast landscape of ruins south of Baghdad, this exhibition is devoted to the Persian legacy inherited by Islam.”

These cultural thieves are revising history, and Saudis are paying for it.

Now here is the truth.

When Arabs, a collection of backward, nomadic warrior tribes who did not even have a fully developed scripted language, conquered sophisticated cultures such as Egypt, Syria, Persia, and the Byzantine Empire, they took control over some of the world’s largest centers of accumulated knowledge. To claim that there was an “Islamic Golden Age” or Islamic Art is like saying a group of savages storming into the world’s largest libraries, murdering all the librarians and then claimed to have written all the books there, gives credit to this myth. Islam’s much-vaunted “Golden Age” was in fact just the twilight of conquered pre-Islamic cultures, an echo of times past. In all honesty, Islam’s trophy to human civilization is and always has been Islamic terrorism.

70% of Persian arts at the Louvre art attributed to Islamic art.  The same in the London Museum and elsewhere. Why? Simple: the Saudis pay them off to revise history.

Since the 9/11 attacks, it has been the duty of all Muslims to lie to infidels about the peacefulness of Islam and create a bogus show of Islamic Arts.

Nearly 1400 years ago, a large number of Muslim jihadists from across the scorching Arabian desert, motivated by the ideology of Islam, indoctrinated by Muhammad, unafraid of death, conquered Iran (Persia), one of the greatest, strongest and most tolerant empires known throughout the history of man. The invasion of Persia was completed five years after the death of the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, though Persian resistance continued for centuries up to and including the present time. (Most Iranians consider the current regime as the continuation of 1400 years of Islamo-Arab tyranny and oppression).

The Bedouin Arabs who toppled the Sassanid Empire were propelled not only by a desire for conquest and to steal Persian jewels and treasures, but also to enslave Iranian women and children, while imposing their barbaric ideology upon the entire population. With that, they almost wiped out one of the most benevolent and ancient religions, Zoroastrianism, which is often called the mother of all revealed religions.

Some 2,500 years ago, a farsighted and benevolent king, Cyrus the Great, issued an historic proclamation to the varied peoples of his vast empire. He granted every people their rights to dignity, independence, beliefs and their way of life. This trailblazing king, considered as the first author of the Charter of Human Rights, showed the justice as well as the feasibility of diverse peoples living peacefully with one another to the benefit of all.

This is the dawn of a new day for our homeland, Iran. Over four decades and 1400 years of darkness has reached its inevitable end. People on the mountaintops are clearly discerning the rays of the new sun that inevitably will chase away the gloom of darkness.
