"Irano-Afghan Race" Fraud

"Irano-Afghan Race" Fraud

According to Coon, The Irano Afghan race is defined as: "The long-faced, high-headed, hook-nosed type, usually of tall stature, which forms the principal element in the population of Iran, Afghanistan, and the Turkoman country, and which is also present in Palestine, parts of Arabia, and North Africa. It is probably related to the old Corded type of the Neolithic and Bronze Age."

This is "Irano-Afghan race" fraud theory. They have made a collection of some hooked nosed people and they call it "Irano-Afghan race". Also note that they include Turkomens and part of Arabia and Palestine and north africa in "Irano-Afghan race". Some Azeris call egyptians, syrians, Morrocans and Palestinians as Persians. All this according to "Irano-Afghan" race theory. Neither Persians or Afghans recognize any of these people as being Persians or the Aryan Afghans. Also you can not point out to any real Persian or Afghan by looking at the definition of "Irano-Afghan race". It defines more than 20-30 ethnic groups in the same race. The prototype used for this race was a Turkoman. Turkomens originate from Turks. Some of pictures used are not really pictures of any real people. They are drawings by an artist. The "Irano-Afghan race" is essentialy a description of Azeris and Turkomans but it is strangely called the "Irano-Afghan race". The "experts" state that this race has very little to do with real Persians or Afghans and it is only a generic name for a description of 20 to 30 different ethnic groups.

"Irano-Afghan race" is also called "Iranid race". Iranids cover an area from North Africa to Central Asia to even India. There are "Iranids" with Turkish influence, Arab influence, orientalid influence, indid influece and Iranids with other admixtures. A better name for this race would be "the middle eastern" race as it is used by some people.

In the middle ages people invented the concept of Ether to explain the vaccuum or empty space. They said "ether" fills the vacuum. "Ether" could not be seen ,touched or smelled. But "Ether" was there. "Iranid race" is similar to ether. Iranids fill the whole region in the middle east. But strangely enough Pashtoons and Persians are not member of this race even it is named after them.

Coon wrote that book in the 1930s. It is unclear there is such a thing as the so called "Irano-Afghan" race - It is just people with really big hooked noses, quite possibly like Azeri Turks in Iran.

It seems Coon was following a "politically correct line" at the time. Coon's book is not a serious scientifc book and and should not be taken seriously. It's pseudo-science.

Confusing and distorting the concept of racial identity is a favourite method to deny the existence of ethnic groups and control nations. They heavily rely on the pseudo concept of Caucausian and Mediternaean where everyone is identical. They conclude that "Iranian race" is caucausian and mediternean therefore it has a hooked nose.

Mediteranean puts together whites and white looking non-whites as a mediteranean race. Both Arabs and Gypsies are members of mediterranean race. This is despite Iran is not even located near the mediteranean sea. Arabs and Azeris and Persians and Swedes are caucasians. So this concept can not describe anything useful about any race.

To understand this kind of nonsense terminology used by these people, one has to understand that the whole world is caucasian. It is only a matter of degree how much caucasian you are. The only exceptions are Mongols and black africans who are not caucasians. So Caucasian can not explain very much about any ethnic group. According to this "scientific report" Azeris are more Caucasian than Russians. Azeris are %87 caucasian and Russians are %85 caucasian. In US they define Caucasian as white European Americans. So are Azeris more white than Russians? This is all confusing terminology.

Most of these theories are based on the most complicated terminology to confuse ordinary people. Most of their terminology is nonsense. These theories do not explain anything. It is similar to creating a race of people with two hands. The whole world is a member of this race. Now you can imagine that this race will not be able to explain anything. All explanations are on a ad hoc basis. It just tries to make up something when the theory can not explain the facts.

Also look at the genetic chart below. They classify Iranian with Turks and Lebanonese. Iranians are far away from Kurds, Caspian (Gilaki, Mazandarani) and Iraqis (there are many Persians in Iraq in addition to Kurds). It is a very strange chart. There is no Iranian race. What they mean by Iranian is an Azeri Turks. Only on that case the chart is correct. That is if all Iranians are Azeri-Turk.
This chart is actually a future chart for Iran where they identify all Iranians as Azeriturks . For Persians then the chart should show that Iranians cluster with British and Danish and Italians as it does here.

The genetic "research" from University of Chicago assumes an Iranian is an Azeri-Turk. They have eliminated Persians as an ethnic group in Iran. For the result of their "Research click here"

They think the Persians as an ethnic minority will disappear into Turkish Azeris by heavy immigration of Azeris into Persian areas and as a consequence of this turkification policy then Iranian mean Turks.The future model for Iran is based on a model like New York. So provinces having different ethnic groups have to disappear and replaced by mixed Azeris. The racial profile of a Iranian is an Azeri-Turk.

These schemes requires that Iranian be very clear on how they identify themselves. Iranian is not a race. It points to many different ethnic groups in Iran. In west, those people with an agenda use Iranian as an equivalent with Persians. And they always use an image of a Turk to represent Persians. And with genetic charts as the evidence it is very evident that a Persian is really an Azeri-Turk. All these schemes are supposed to devalue the word "Persian" and its historical heritage as Aryans. To clear the confusion it is necessary for Iranians to make clear identity demarcations as Persian-Iranians or just Persians or Kurdish-Iranians as they do in US with German-American or Italian American. Persians should abandon the "Iranian" term and let the "Iranian" to denote an Azeriturk as it is understood in common daily usage in West. Persians should identify themselves as Persians.

The Persian phenotype is clearly different from the Azeri-Turkish phenotype and the Azeri natioanlist claims that Azeris and Persian are indistinguishble or strikinigly similar is not valid. The way they prove their theory is to show a picture of an Azeri and then show a picture of another Azeri but calling the second Azeri a "Persian". This way they prove that Azeris and Persians look the same. To disporve this theory it is very simple to post the pictures of Afghans to see a non-Azeriturk Iranian phenotype. There are no Azeris in Afghanistan and the line between a turk and a Persian is very clear. In Western countries Azeris are mixed up with Persians in terms of terminology. These Azeri phenotypes do not exist in Afghanistan as there are no Azeris in Afghanistan.
