From the point of view of Muslims, what do you think about the anti-Arab game put out by Iran called "Beat the Arab"?

Racism per se is evil.

That such racism [evil] exists do point out the Iranians and the Arabs [esp. of the Saudi Peninsula] were of different races, the Persians were very far more advanced than the Arabs.

It is very unfortunate for the Iranians [Persians] who had inherited a long established progressive civilization, culture, traditions, religion, were overran by uncultured Arabs in the 7th century which curtailed their natural progress.

Many of the so-called advancements in knowledge so-claimed [very embarrassing ] to be Islamic were contributed by Iranians of old. They have the competency to contribute knowledge not because they are Muslims and Islamic but the reality it is because they are inherently Persians with progressive genes, brain and mind.

The control of the above argument is; e.g. Indonesia was Islamized few hundred years ago and now has 200++ million Muslims. Up to the present, Indonesia has contributed nothing significant incremental to humanity's pool of knowledge. The result is the same for other Islamic Nations.

The irony is the Jews who were condemned as 'apes' by Muhammad in the Quran [plagiarized from the Torah and Gospel] has many [194, 23% of all] Nobel Prize Winners compared to none* within the mainstream Muslim community.

*Abdus Salam who won the Nobel Prize in Physics is a Ahmadiyyah which is condemned as heretic by the mainstream Muslims.
In 1974, Abdus Salam departed from his country, in protest, after the Pakistan Parliament passed a controversial parliamentary bill declaring the Ahmadiyya Community as not-Islamic. -wiki

Wow. Khomeini would be spinning in his grave over that one.

In his run up to overthrowing the Shah, Khomeini went to great lengths to preserve the Arab influence over Iran's Muslim community - even going so far as to Arab-ize his name to al-Khomeini at one point. (Could have been done just to tick off the Monarchy, but still...) To him, dar-e Islam was far more important than Arab v. Persian. (See: Taheri, Spirit of Allah.)

In 1988, he clearly envisioned exporting his Islamic revolution throughout Arab lands, with Iran becoming the center of Islam. (See: Moin, Khomeini: Life of the Ayatollah.)

In his purges, the Mojahadin, the Tudeh, and the Shah's top people all fell to the executioner, but Arabs (as a bloc) did not.

It was 1987 that he got sideways of the Saudis during the Hajj, but that was over his perception that the Saudis were not rightly guided with respect to the house of Saud, not simply because they were Arabs. And if you are going to protest the Saudi ruling family, Hajj time is not the right time to do it - and Mecca isn't the place.

So if not Khomeini, the only Shi'ite scholar to ever assume the title Imam, whose guidance are today's Iranians following?
