In light of the current travails and struggle of the Iranian people to secure democracy and basic human rights for all of its citizens, who would have thought that it was Persia, now Iran, that created the first human rights charter? Furthermore, who would ever have thought that it was the Persians, namely Cyrus the Great, who ever brought about religious freedom, not only for themselves, but for the Jews as well?

Irony of ironies.
