Poetry read and understood in farsi (persian) is like an experiance no one ever could imagin!

I am just puzzled why iranian leaders who also can read these,do not follow??

It's time to speak of roses and pomegranates,
and of the ocean where pearls are made
of language and vision, and of invisible ladders,
which are different for each person, that lead
to the infinite place where trees
murmur among themselves,
"What a fine stretch
this is in the air today?"
And nightingales ask the just beginning nubs
of fruit that appear when the blossoms fall off,
"Give us some of what
you're drinking!"
Join that endless joy-talking,
and forget the other, the worrying that
you might be taken for a jackass!

Genocide Commission And Genocide Denial By Armenian Genocide-Denying US, Turkey And Israel

By Dr Gideon Polya

13 October, 2007

A great victory for truth over repugnant Genocide Denial has just been achieved in Washington - with a vote of 27 to 21, the US Congress House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee has adopted House of Representative Resolution 106, the Armenian Genocide Resolution that acknowledges the World War 1 Armenian Holocaust as an Armenian Genocide. This was achieved in the face of intense lobbying by the Bush Administration, Apartheid Israel, the Racist Zionist (RZ) Lobby and the Turkish Government (see: http://www.panarmenian.net/news/eng/ ...).

Now decent people hope that the Resolution will survive the intense lobbying of the genocide-denying Racist Bush-ites, Racist Zionists and Turkish lobbyists to be passed by the House of Representatives.

There is much semantic confusion about the term “genocide” that can be simply dispelled by considering the International Law legal definition accepted by all countries of the world and as set out by the UN Genocide Convention (see: http://www.edwebproject.org/sideshow/genocide ...), QUOTE:“Article II. In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: a) Killing members of the group; b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

Under this definition the Armenian Holocaust (1.0-1.5 million dead) was clearly a genocide, an Armenian Genocide – notwithstanding the spin, falsehood and Genocide-Denial of Bush US Administration and the Turkish and Israeli Governments.
