I can understand the inherent animosity of this little island and Persia. Why you try to remove Iranian or Persians from 9th Cen B C ?? Are you people so ignorant to visit your own museums which are filled with all that stolen objects only from Lorestan Area just adjucent to your biblical creation of mesopotamia ?. There your blind eye can see that bronze, silver and iron objects from 6th melenium BC to 6 th Cen BC.
Shame on you
