FIRST IRANIAN FAMOUS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF

INTRODUCTION:
An army is a country's military, and a commander-in-chief (CIC) is a person in charge of all the armed forces of a country or of all forces fighting in a particular area or operation. In this article, the life and the battles of the first Iranian famous CIC, Rostam-e-Farrokh Zaad (RFZ), are presented and discussed.

HIS LIFE:
The birth-date and the birthplace of RFZ, the first Iranian famous army commander, are unknown. It is, however, speculated that he should have been born about the same time when Khosrow Parviz (KHP) was succeeded to the Sassanid throne in 590 AD.It is also reported that RFZ possibly belonged to a noble family from Fars. On the basis of Ferdowsi's epic book of Shahnameh, RFZ was knowledgeable in astronomy, astrology and he was a master of military skills. Ferdowsi describes him as one of the finest warriors (in Persian: Delavaraan or Razmandehggan) of Iran. At 40 when Hormoz or Hormizd VI was in power (631- 632 AD), RFZ was one of the four Marshals of the Monarchy, and he promoted as a CIC when Yazdegerd or Yazdgird III took power in 632 AD.

After the death of KHP in 628 AD until the reign of Yazdgird III at 632 AD, there were seven Sassanid royal personalities (SRP) who ruled over Iran. During that period, Iran was unfortunately facing some political and economical problems. One of the reasons for those problems was the prolonged war between Iran and Rome, which almost broke the backbone of Iranian economy. At the same time the neighboring Muslim Arabs under Umar-ibn-al-Khattab (634 - 644 AD) were planning to attack and to conquer Iran. It should be noted that during those days most Iranians and people of Central Asia resisted firmly the Arab invaders and they also, by their teeth and nails, fought the invaders from the beginning up to the end.

HIS BATTLES:
In 635 AD, Umar appointed Abu Obayd Ibn Al Mossana to be in charge of the War with Iran. An intense battle between the Arabs and Iranian armies occurred, and Euphrates River was the battle scene. The Iranian Army Commander was no one else but RFZ, the CIC of Iran. Iranians won this battle and Arabs ran away. RFZ knew that he had to chase Arabs all the way back and defeat them in their own land. Yet he was called upon to get back to Madaa-en or Ctesiphone, the Sassanid Capital near present-day Baghdad.

This gave Arabs an opportunity to rest, regroup and a year later they started their invasion once more. In 636 AD, RFZ faced the most important battle of his life. RFZ and his Selected Immortal Guards or SIG (in Persian: Gaard-e-Jaavidan) together with the Iranian Infantry and Cavalry on one side and the Arabs under Sa'ad-Ibn-Abi-Vaghas (SAV) on the other side got ready for the battle in Ghadesiyeh near Hira. Iranian Army was a traditional organized military force, yet Arabs were fighting hit and run commando warfare. Umar ordered SAV not to take any Iranian soldier as the prisoner of war, POW, and kill any POW instead. It seemed like the nature was not even with the Iranian fighters at the time. A sand storm came from the desert and hit the Iranians straight on the face, and blinded them.

Ferdowsi has documented that during a night in Ghadesiyeh, RFZ, the astrologer, read the stars and he foresaw and anticipated his defeat, the fall of Sassanid Empire, and the disasters, which Iran would face. He then wrote a letter to his brother and notified him what was going to happen:

HIS END:
Ultimately, Arabs under SAV defeated the Sassanid army in the battle of Ghadesiyeh. When SAV sent a letter to RFZ and invited him to surrender his artilleries and forces, and bring Islam, so he could be saved, RFZ laughed at messenger. He then extended his right arm toward the Iranian land that he was standing upon, and loudly declared:

THIS SOIL IS MY BLOOD AND VEINS;

I CANNOT GIVE IT AWAY. I NEED IT TO LIVE!



When night came, Arabs rushed into his strong hold. It is documented that RFZ bravely fought until the last drop of his blood and at the end even after he lost his sword, he fought Arabs with bare hand and no shield. RFZ and his SIG killed as many Arabs as they could. Then a group of Arabs rushed over and attacked him in all directions. Eventually RFZ was sadly killed by the hands of Helaal-e-Arab, an army commander under SAV in 636 AD.

MANY IRANIANS STILL SALUTE TO ROSTAM-E-FARROKH ZAAD WHO SKILLFULLY COMMANDED HIS ARMY AND BRAVELY BATTLED AGAINST THE INVADING ARABS UNTIL THE LAST DROP OF HIS BLOOD!

Dear Liberator:

For the record,

Double letters (English) and Tashdid (Persian) is used for Tashdid (Emphasis on a certain letter). Before Arabs invaded Iran, we did not have Tashdid, so how could his name be "Rostam Farrokhzad"? Besides, Farokhzad is one word, not two! So "Farokh Zad" is incorrect. Originally, Tashdid was Arabic and we don't have Tashdid in Persian. Persian names don't get Tashdid, so it is Rostam Farokhzad and with your permission, we revised your title. The so called writer of this article "Manouchehr Saadat Noury of Persian Journal" from this site "Iranian.ws" abbreviates his name as RFZ. This is incorrect. It is RF.

"Manouchehr Saadat Noury of Persian Journal"
http://www.iranian.ws/iran_news/publish ... 8222.shtml

In addition, the so called writer of this article "Manouchehr Saadat Noury of Persian Journal", copy/pasted Dr. X's article on Rostam Farokhzad (from "222 Years of Struggle for Independence of Iran" Book from the old IPC Site), added a few lines to it and revised it a little. Then he also copy/pasted the picture of RF to his site. The only picture available of RF on and off the Internet has been created by Dr. X, so this man in fact, copy/pasted Dr. X's article and picture to his site, without naming the source and link to IPC or just a simple thank you note! Not only that, but then he went and claimed a Copy Right on the stolen article and picture made by DR. X for IPC!

"Manouchehr Saadat Noury of Persian Journal" is a perfect example of a typical Iranian! This is what he did in review:

1. Stole the article written by Dr. X for IPC (from Dr. X's book)
2. Stole the picture made by Dr. X for IPC (The only picture of RF available)
3. Added a few lines and revised the article a bit.
4. Changed the color of the picture from yellow to white
5. Published the article and picture in his own site
6. Did not mention IPC's name or link (which is required by law). Not even a simple thank you note!
7. Claimed to Copy Right the stolen article and picture (originally copy right by IPC), so no one can steal them from him!

Only an Iranian would do this! This is only one example out of many. We are sure, you are aware of weekly stealings of IPC articles and images without permission.

Here is the official policy of IPC and it is written at the bottom of every page of IPC:

Duplication of contents are allowed, only by naming the source & link to IPC

Do you wonder why Dr. X wrote that lengthy series about Moral Revolution?
Iran and Iranians need most of all, a Moral Revolution!

Dear IPC,

Well the positive thing is that the word is being spread.
The sad thing is that the author clearly claims something that isn't his as his own work.

Dear members,
Interesting trade of words:


To the Administrator of IPC.Club
Dear Administrator,

I just read your comment on the article of the First Iranian Commander-in-Chief written by great Iranian scholar Professor Saadat Noury. I was shocked for what you wrote:

1. You must be ashamed of yourself. You are week person who is not able and cannot dare to declare his or her real name. You conceal yourself under a phony name of Dr X.

2. Where is that original article of yours about Rostam Farrokhzad that you claimed Professor Noury copied it. You must have also quoted your own article that everybody could see the similarities and the differences.

3. RFZ is not an abbreviation; it is an initial. Besides, it is scientifically 100% correct to use 3 letters for the initial as it is also done for the genetic codes, which are always shown by 3 letters, e.g. DNA, etc.

4. Professor Noury’s articles and poems have been always attracted the attention of many patriotic Iranians. Those who challenge him must be considered anti Iranian and pro-Akhoonds.

4. If you are truthful and honest you must think twice when you write something about anything or anybody. If you have any problem with any article, you better write directly first to the author of that article and clear everything with him or her.

5. If I were you, I would have immediately removed all those absurd comments from the Internet.

Sincerely,
Leela Baharan, PhD

Leela Baharan, PhD:

Never mind, I found the article. You are writing about this one:

http://iranpoliticsclub.net/club/viewtopic.php?t=804

This article (original):

http://www.iranian.ws/cgi-bin/iran_news ... gi/13/8222

Which the stolen pictures (created by Ahreeman) had now came off the site but the stolen article is still up,

Was stolen from this book:

http://iranpoliticsclub.net/library/eng ... /index.htm

This is not the first time that your site has stolen the IPC articles without mentioning the source and link to IPC. Read the bottom of each IPC page:

Duplication of contents are allowed, only by naming the source & link to IPC
All rights are protected & reserved by Iran Politics Club © 2000 - 2007 IPC

Every day IPC material gets stolen around the net by shameless Iranian sites. We are used to it and we don’t have time to file suits.

The man you call shamless (Ahreeman) is a leading Iranian historian whom hundreds of Iranian sites, TVs, Radios and other Media, steal his work by the day without naming the source.

Thieving Iranian authors and sites such as Persian Journal (Iranian.ws) and your author should have some shame and stop their thievery.

Instead of apologizing, you write a complain letter to IPC! You got nerves. You, your author and your site are what we call:

Dozd-e Porru (Bold Thief)

This conversation is posted under the same thread, so above thievery will be exposed globally.

I am not Dr. X (Ahreeman).

“Dear Administrator,”


If you are going to slur me then why are you calling me dear? Make up your mind, do you like me or hate me?

You wrote:
“Those who challenge him must be considered anti Iranian and pro-Akhoonds.”


You sound like a Monarchist. They also claim that anyone who does not agree with them is a Akhoond! Are you some lowly Monarchist bimbo ranting and raving?

You wrote:
“RFZ is not an abbreviation; it is an initial. Besides, it is scientifically 100% correct to use 3 letters for the initial as it is also done for the genetic codes, which are always shown by 3 letters, e.g. DNA, etc.”


You are incorrect. George Walker Bush becomes GWB but Rostam Farokhzad is 2 words and it doesn’t become RFZ. BTW, your grammar sucks. Re-read your letter and go back to school.

You wrote:
“Professor Noury’s articles and poems have been always attracted the attention of many patriotic Iranians. Those who challenge him must be considered anti Iranian and pro-Akhoonds.”


Who the hell is he? Does he have a Chelo Kaboby in Valley?

You wrote:
“Where is that original article of yours about Rostam Farrokhzad that you claimed Professor Noury copied it.”


It is Farokhzad, not Farrokhzad. He was Persian, not Arab, so how could his name have “Tashdid”? You don’t have a clue. Do you? How can you be a doctor if so illiterate?

This Noury guy did not copy it. No one said anything about copy! He revised it, moved things around, rewrote it and how should we put it ….. he stole it like a thief. Do you get it?


You wrote:
“If you are truthful and honest you must think twice when you write something about anything or anybody.”


I did, but did you? Why do you stick your foot in your mouth?

You wrote:
“If I were you, I would have immediately removed all those absurd comments from the Internet.”


Well you are not me and that will happen when hell freezes over. Someone needs to make an example of all of you Iranian thieves.

Next time around, post your comments in the club and don’t send e-mails. Our mailbox is already full of nonsense junk!

Don’t feel so bad, your author and site are not the first and last Iranian sites who steal IPC material.

BTW, are you working your way up to your doctorate by dancing in the local GOGO Shop or have you achieved it yet?

Get a life girl.
