    I am a follower of Prophet Zarathushtra's 4500 year-old monotheistic religion that was the majority religion of several Persian empires for over a thousand years, before its invasion by Muslim Arabs.

    I agree with Peter Jackson and other western scholars who have recognized the wide influence of Zarathushtra's teachings. Many later world religions such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam have incorporated some concepts (kinder and gentler God, Heaven, Hell, Resurrection, five times prayer, etc.)from Zarathushtra's teachings.

    In spite of the Arabian religion of Islam forced on Iran after the Arab conquest, the subconscious of Iranians is influenced by the democratic, progressive values of their ancient prophet, and we hope the brave Iranians will re-establish democracy in Iran some day, where all religions will be freely practiced.
