LONDON, (CAIS) -- The Islamic republic's "pre-Islamic cultural cleansing machine" set in motion once again, this time the victim is the renowned 3rd century Sasanian palace in Fars province, known as the Firuzabad Palace, as well as Pars Fire Temple and Palace of Ardeshir.

 

According to Persian service of ISNA, the order for constructions of a road and bridge came directly from Mahmud Ahamadnejad, the Islamic regime's president, during his last visit to Fars Province in April 2007. During the visit, he also ordered the operation of the Sivand Dam, which devoured 137 archaeological sites in Bolaghi Valley, dated from Pre-History to the post-Sasanian periods.

 

"During the last visit of Mahmud Ahmadinejad, he sanctioned the construction of this bridge. We, have done our best to prevent its construction, but because the order came from him, we were not successful", Afshin Yazdani an archaeologist with Fars Cultural Heritage Organisation, told Persian service of ISNA on Wedensday.
