iran - carrying a grudge to extremes

One of the issues President Obama will need to overcome and apologize for in opening a dialogue with Iran is the bad press Iran and Persia have gotten in the West. This is evidently a very long term affair, related to Western cultural imperialism in the Middle East and the machinations of highly placed secret Zionists in the historiography industry. .
It seems that the Iranians are still sore about bad press over their invasion of Greece about 2,500 years ago. In the Middle East, a grudge is forever.
Iranians are still sore about Thermopylae - they got bad press from the West. Witness this report from AP and as-Sharq Al-Awsat:
TEHRAN, Iran, (AP) – An adviser to Iran's president on Sunday demanded an apology from a team of visiting Hollywood actors and movie industry officials, including Annette Bening, saying films such as "300" and "The Wrestler" were "insulting" to Iranians.

Without an apology, members of Iran's film industry should refuse to meet with representatives from the nine-member team, said Javad Shamaqdari, the art and cinema adviser to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"In my viewpoint, it is a failure to have an official meeting with one who is insulting," Shamaqdari told The Associated Press.

The film "300," portrays the battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C., in which a force of 300 Spartans held off a massive Persian army at a mountain pass in Greece for three days. It angered many Iranians for the way Persians are depicted as decadent, sexually flamboyant and evil in contrast to the noble Greeks.

The Iranian government has long been convinced that Hollywood, and in particular the Disney studios, are controlled by the international Jew-Zionist conspiracy, and that Mickey and other mice are creations of the devilish Zionists. Add Thucydides and Herodotus to the list of Zionist conspirators. How unfortunate that the benighted Greeks did not appreciate the attempt of the enlightened Persians to bring their advanced civilization to Greece and eliminate the Zionist apartheid regimes there!
