Comments on: It isn’t the Arabian Gulf http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2011/06/27/it-isnt-the-arabian-gulf/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Dubai_Gentleman http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2011/06/27/it-isnt-the-arabian-gulf/comment-page-1/#comment-347607 Wed, 02 Nov 2011 06:24:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/?p=19201#comment-347607 I totally disagree about how the Iranians dealing with the gulf naming issue. Racism and Extremism will never help. The population of the 6 Arab countries which sharing the same body of water could do the same, but they prefer to handle in peace or sometime ignore what Iranians attempting. I’m from UAE and my ancestor lived on this body of water dependably, we never ever used the terms of “Persian Gulf” neither in schools nor in media and we don’t accept this name to be official in our countries at least. Everyone knows that it is 100% Arabian gulf. Even history which the Iranians want the world to refer will not support them in all the time. If you concern on history you will this coast was never being Persian. No Persian cities build till 1920s, no ports, no navigations. The whole gulf is pure Arabian, Arabs dominate that cost and the islands since 1500 and during the British occupation all the area given to Iran.

(yes, sarcasm is intended)

It’s not The Gulf, it has a name. We Persian people will never let anybody to change this name, even if our government is so stupid that doesn’t seem to even complain about what Arabs are trying to do.

There are lots of benefits for you in changing the name of the Persian Gulf to any other names, but there should be a difference between those people who tried to change the history and you.

Long live The Persian Gulf.
