Proxies Of US and Zionists Not Only Want Regime Change, Also Want To Rename Persian Gulf

PRESS TV       Sun., April 29, 2018

Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on international affairs, said on Sunday that the Persian Gulf belongs to Iranians based on all Arab and Iranian documents, remarks by historians and maps in museums.

“The story of renaming the Persian Gulf and distorting its name by the proxies of the arrogance is a seditious move but they should know that this is a futile and momentary effort,” he said.

Velayati said the insistence on changing the name of the Persian Gulf “is actually a precursor to changing the identity and ownership” of the waterway in order to dominate Central Asia and the Indian Ocean.

During a speech last October, US President Donald Trump used the fictitious name “the Arabian Gulf” to refer to the Persian Gulf, sparking  anger and mockery among the Iranian people.

Velayati said the Saudis and others who speak about the Persian Gulf in fabrications and untruth are in fact acting as the mouthpieces of the US, Israel and the UK, which are looking for colonialism and tyranny.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran, like in the past or even stronger and firmer than ever, stresses that it will never allow the slightest change to the name of the Persian Gulf,” he pointed out.

Iran has designated April 30 as National Persian Gulf Day to highlight the fact that the waterway has been referred to by historians and ancient texts as “Persian” since the Achaemenid Empire was established in what is now modern day Iran.

While historical documents show that the waterway has always been referred to as the “Persian Gulf,” certain Arab states and their allies have recently mounted efforts to remove “Persian” from the name of the waterway.

National Persian Gulf Day also marks the anniversary of the dislodging of Portuguese military forces from the Strait of Hormuz in 1622, during the reign of Safavid king Shah Abbas I.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
