Tomb of Emperor Xerxes to be destroyed by occupational Islamic Regime
After having destroyed over a hundred archaeological sites dating from pre-historic to post-sassanian times (Sivand Dam) and exposing the tomb of Cyrus the Great to future destruction, the Islamic Republic is set to destroy a monumental Iranian historical site in their campaign to exterminate all remains of pre-Islamic Iran (Persia). The tomb of Emperor Xerxes at "Naqsh-e Rostam" historical site is at risk of breaking in two if the occupational Islamic regime is allowed to continue construction with their Esfehan-Shiraz railway track. Evidence confirms the fears of Iranian cultural heritage enthusiasts that the powerful jolts caused by the passing of trains in such a close distance (as planned) to Naqsh-e Rostam would put the already damaged tomb of Emperor Xerxes in a real risk of being broken into two parts over time.
These losses are not just losses to the Iranian Nation but to the entire cultural heritage of mankind. If Iranians are powerless to save these sites due to the violent and repressive nature of the occupational Islamic Regime at least those nations who do have the power (technological, economical etc.) to assist the Iranian people in liberating themselves should do their human duty in helping the occupied people of Iran!
