NO. Cyrus the Great name in Farsi is actually Kouroush; Cyrus is the English/Greek equivalent.

Did you know that Cyrus the Great is revered near a prophet-like figure in the Torah?

I have a couple of more videos including another beheading that is almost done being uploaded.

It appears that Islam has been reduced to a near secular level of symbolism in Iran - at least that bodes well for reducing the implications of nuclear threat from the country.  Oh, just as a side note, the plural of sheep is just sheep, not 'sheeps'.

The vast majority of Iranians don't attend these barbaric events - and the ones that I did attend - was a liberal one. Not the type the Basijis and Hizbollis attend.

That's too bad, it would have been interesting to see some video of a Basij festival to get an idea of just how extreme Islam can get in the country.

I know :( I wanted to go and my cousin wouldn't because we would have to dress in black, grow beards, and pretend to be hardcore Muslims. And - videotaping is shunned upon at these events.

I watched my father beheading chickens when i was young... nothing special actually.

 

I hope nobody plans on eating that sheep. This slaughter definately is against islamic rules.
