    The Weekly Arab World Corner: Iran and the 300 Scandal

    115 views's Firas Hamed presents a weekly corner focusing on developments in the Arab world and Middle East.  This week, the focus is on the uproar in Iran over the recently-released film "300," based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller, which depicts the epic Battle of Thermopolis between Sparta and Persia.  The Iranians claim the movie defames the Persians and their Kind Cyrus, and say it is Jewish-Zionist conspiracy, and part of a US psychological war campaign to pave the way for American military action against Iran.  08/14/07
