DPA: Tehran condemns "anti-iranian" movie 300

I couldn't agree with them more:

"Javad Shamqadri, art advisor to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,
told Fars news agency that the film was an insult to Persian culture
and in line with the American "psychological war" against Iran."

"Iran's has called foul over what it calls "deviation of history"
but also because the Persians in the film were shown as "ugly and
violent creatures rather than human beings.""

"The film critics further said that after Germans, Japanese,
Russians and Arabs, Iranians seem to become the new "villian" in
Hollywood productions.

A large number of Iranians abroad have already started a worldwide
email campaign to send protest missives to Warner Bros. for having
insulted Persian culture and history."
