HI[edit]

My friend, it is nice to hear from you. Good to hear that you are busy with your studies. Keep it up and when you're finished come back to Iraq like me :) About the Magi article, I remember working on it abit years ago and I was pushed off by Iranians as well. I'm sorry but I'm really not active in wiki right now. But I know a fellow Iraqi that is even more knowledgeable then me who can help you. Contact him: User:Gabr-el. Tell him what you told me and he should try to get something right going. Iraqi (talk) 08:52, 23 December 2009 (UTC)


[edit]

Many Iranians consider their natural sphere of influence to extend beyond Iran's present borders. After all, Iran was once much larger. Portuguese forces seized islands & ports in the 16th & 17th centuries. In the 19th century, the Russian Empire wrested from Tehran's control what is today Armenia, Republic of Azerbaijan, & part of Georgia. Iranian elementary school texts teach about the Iranian roots not only of cities like Baku, but also cities further north like Derbent in southern Russia. The Shah lost much of his claim to western Afghanistan following the Anglo-Iranian war of 1856-1857. Only in 1970 did a UN sponsored consultation end Iranian claims to suzerainty over the Persian Gulf island nation of Bahrain. In centuries past, Iranian rule once stretched westward into modern Iraq & beyond. When the western world complains of Iranian interference beyond its borders, the Iranian government often convinced itself that it is merely exerting its influence in lands that were once its own. Simultaneously, Iran's losses at the hands of outside powers have contributed to a sense of grievance that continues to the present day.

Azerbaijani People[edit]

Sorry for this late reply. I'll certainly keep my eye open and I myself will revert any vandalism if I see it. I think the culprit is either a Persian nationalist or an pro-geneticist who usually try to pull out strange conclusions based on very debateable genetic studies (which should never be important here...especially as they usually confirm what the geneticists what them to confirm (because they are based on individual interpretation of facts...hence you always have widely different interpretations based on the same genetic findings).

Azeris are clearly a Turkic people. Even if they had no genetical similarity with the original Turkic groups, they'd still be Turks because more than their language is Turkic, you also have traditions, cultural traits and self-identity. The Mummy (talk) 09:20, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Azeris![edit]

Hi, again. It is unfortunate that I have to apologize for a late reply again. I agree with everything you said. It is sad that many ethnic articles are awash with nationalists and closet racists. Ethnicity is a fluid concept which is based on, in a national sense, culture or linguistics and it a personal sense on self-identification for the most part! Genetics has nothing whatever to do with national or ethnic identity. I find it disturbing that genetic history sections take up so much room on wikipedia pages.

The only way to deal with the trolls who keep making changes would be to look into the page history and compare the different revisions. It sadly takes a lot of time, though, but it might be worth it. Unfortunately trolls never can get banned from wikipedia for good. They always find a way back!

Disambiguation link notification for January 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ghassanids, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Qahtani (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hey! Thanks for your message...sorry, just saw it. The issue appears to have been resolved, but if it happens again and escalates, perhaps we can lock the page. Best wishes --(Moshe) מֹשֶׁה‎ 01:47, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
