The movie "300" : Inaccurate and Insulting !?
"To all Iranians, and all those who know and respect ancient Persian history and culture :
A new movie called "300" is opening on March 9th in theatres all over the United States, sponsored and made by Warner Brothers Pictures.It is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller which portrays the battleof Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fight againstXerxes and his Persian army.Upon seeing the previews of this movie, it immediately becomes clear that apart from the actual names used in it, the entire depiction of thisbattle is based on fantasy.Xerxes and his army are shown as monster-like men, with attire andattitudes that can only be seen among demons.It is obvious that attempts have been made to purposefully insult ancient Persians.Please take a moment to sign the following petition to boycott thisinsulting and inaccurate movie, in the hope that our voices may be heard. And please don't hesitate to circulate it among as many people aspossible!"
