Associating Iranians with Arabs and Africans

Wikepedia associates Persians with Arabs and Africans

It is argued that much of North Africa's and Arabia's population is Black or mulatto due to importation of Black slaves by Islamic traders across the Sahara desert, where they mixed with the native Arabs.

It is undeniable that many people in North Africa, such as alleged terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui of Moroccan descent, have enough black African ancestry to be considered "Black" in the United States.

However, others have argued that at least in the Middle East (e.g. Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, etc.), most Arabs (who are not Indo-European) can be more closely related to Persians – and vice versa – due to both the ancient slave trade and the wars that involved Macedonian, Byzantine, Roman, Holy Roman, Persian and other empires.

Persians are the same ethnic group as Arabs according to Wikepedia

There can be as much difference between two ethnicities grouped into a single "race" as there can be between ethnicities grouped (often arbitrarily) into an another "race". A very good example of this type of "arbitrary classifaction" include the Persians and Arabs, which - according to the Bible as well as the Quran - make up two separate and distinct racial groups (not ethnic groups).

Comments on Wikepedia

Persians have no problem with arabs. But due to anti-arab propoganda in US, Persians are associated with Arabs to undermine the social status of Persians in US. Persia had no history of Slavery. And Persians are not Arabs and they are two different ethnic groups and it is not arbitary to divide Arabs and Persians into two different groups. Also note what Wikepedia states are not random statements and they have an editorial board which carefully approves what they will display as their knowledge base. Wikepedia statements are consistent with Hollywood and the rest of US mass media. The whole line on Persians is very consistent. Also there are powerful groups in US who finance DNA "research" in the middle east trying to prove that Persians are racially linked to semitic arabs and africans and delinking Persians from their European heritage. This is done mostly by choosing the DNA "samples" from a pre-approved group of people who might prove what they wanted to prove.

"Persians are Arab Theory"

The fall of the Persian Empire marks the end of the great majority White civilizations in the Near East. By this time virtually all of the settlements in the greater region had lost whatever racial homogeneity they once had, and were to larger or smaller degrees societies comprised of a plethora of mixed races, producing the wide and varied physiognomy visible to this day in the region - a mix of Semitic and original White stock.From the time of the fall of the Persian Empire however, the near East ceased to be an area which was majority occupied by peoples who could claim to be White in the original racial sense of the word. Nonetheless, to this day there remain significant Indo-European genetic throwbacks amongst the Persians, today called the Iranians, as is the case throughout the entire Near and Middle East, from India, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and even amongst the Palestinians. The modern day word for Persia - Iran - is derived from their ancient racial roots, the Aryans (as is the case with Iraq and also the very word India).

Persia was overrun by the Arabic Muslims in 651 AD, and through the integration which followed the last major traces of the pure Indo-European peoples in the Middle East was diluted.

Indeed, much of what later became known as Muslim culture, architecture, writing and other skills, were taken from the Persians into the broad Semitic speaking world.

Notes: The key point in this article is mixing up Persians with Iranians According to these poeple Iranians live as far as Palestine!! Also note how these "champions of human right and minority rights" respect people depending only on how you look like.

    according to the leading anthropolgists the persian iranians are afro-arabs.

  2. It is a joke to say that Iranians are afro arabs. This thinking in my country, the USA, is based on ignorance. Most people in the USA couldn't even point out on a map where Iran is located. In fact, if you mention Persia they will say "carpet" or "cat".
    Iranians belong to an ancient Indo European people. In the South you will find some Arabs but that does not make it an arab country. It would be like calling the USA a Chinese country since you will find Chinese people in some major cities. The USA is a European based country and Iran is an Indo European country.

    Indo-European is a lie.

    A lot of Iranians have Arab blood. Arabs and Iranians have been in contact with eachother for thousands of years, it's natural.

    Afro-Arabs? Not a chance in hell.
    Persians in general look more like E. Europeans than so-called inferior status afro-arabs. Afro-Arabian appearance would be very rare in Iran, for it is even rare among Arab coastals and Mesopotamians.

    It is naive to claim that Iranians are purely descendant from Indo-Aryan lineage. In fact, the original inhabitants of what is now called Iran were of African descent (The Elamites). The waves of Indo-Aryans who swept down from what is now known as Tajikistan, Russia, and Azerbaijan mixed with the afro-asian natives over thousands of years to create the people that currently inhabit the middle east. A people so mixed that it is a futile effort to try to identify any group as a "race." The major differences are culture but not ethnic or racial The middle east is the first and oldest melting pot of phenotypes in the world. Oh and this is coming from an Iranian.
