Hello" My Name Is Moises And I Have Two Question :
  1. The Iranian Christian , Accept And Love To Israel ?
  2. Accept Israel Is One Nation?
Thank You - Shalom In The Name Of Yeshua Messiah...
Sincerely Your Brother In Christ, , , Mr. Moises New York State , USA


  1. True Iranian Christians like all other true Christians Have to LOVE everyone. As Jesus Said, His Followers can not hate anyone, not even their enemies. So, do all Iranian Christians Love & Accept Israel? I don't know - most if not all Iranian Christians I know, DO.
  2. True Iranian Christians like any other true Christian understands that Israel is God's promised land to His people and that's where God Plan will unfold. Christians are to obey and respect Governments which are appointed and ultimately managed, appointed and maintained by God. This goes for Government of Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, US, Russia, ...
  3. Besides, An Iranian Christian's Lord, messiah, Saviour is a Jew - How can one not Love & pray for & Respect Israel and its people. That's where our Lord is from and that's where He is coming back to.

In Jesus Love, Shalom, Amir


I just wanted to leave a comment commending you on your fantastic website. I am an Australian media student and was researching the language of Iran. Many people in the west seem to think Iranians speak Arabic (as did I). Your website has taught me much about the Persian/Farsi languages. I hope many more people will benefit from your website.

Thank You, Paul Miles

Hello Paul (Salaam Pooles - in Persian/Farsi) Glad you have found the information at FarsiNet useful - one of our major goals is to introduce Iranians, Iran and its history, Culture and Heritage to the World. - Regards, Amir

  Dear Friend,
I live in Oman, can you send me some praise and worship in Farsi? - Peter
Hello Peter,
Yes, of course. We will send you several of rather popular Persian (Farsi) Praise & Worship CDs (Worship CD from Iranian Church of Dallas, Hallelujah Worship CD, & Ligh In The Darkness CD), as well as some Farsi Injil and tracts. God Bless, Nader

I always thought your site is something else, but today I saw a link from your site for : HOW TO BECOME A MUSLIM

I can't believe you let this link in your site, does that mean they paid you ? I hope they did, even though this will confuse people and let satan take the confused souls with him to hell and you will have a part in this, you have to answer to GOD for what you do on earth.

Either islam is right or Jesus , they can't be both right, I hope you know that, if not, I encourage you to do a little research, koran denies the death and ressurection of Jesus Christ and as we all know, this is the core of christianity.

please reconsider before you lose the chance for ever.

A saved soul by Jesus ( I was a drug addict Muslim 8 years ago and Jesus saved me by a miracle and I know thousands of miracles are being done every day )

God bless those who guide people into the light not the darkness with love of GOD in Christ the saviour- H. Y.

Dear H. Y. Salaam,
Merci for your comments and feedback.

Regarding ads on FarsiNet - we do have a lot of control but not 100%.

Some of the Ads on FarsiNet are displayed by "Google", "Yahoo" or "Amazon" - these ads have a small comment somewhere that says so, for example "Ad by Google". These ads are automatically placed on a page based on the content of the page and the keywords the Ad was assigned to. Some times, Ads do end up on the wrong page or the content of a page is mis-interpreted.

When/if we find ads by a company that is not appropriate for FarsiNet - we can request their Ads not to be placed on FarsiNet anymore. If you had sent me the URL (web address) of the site you mentioned (how to become a Muslim) - I would have check it and add it to our block list so their ad is not displayed on our site any more.

Of course, its very clear that FarsiNet is an Iranian Christian Website, although we do have some non-christian content (Noruz, Persian Cat, Persian Carpet, Persian Caviar, Persian Poetry, ZanAmu, Travel 2 Iran,....). Our prayer has been that any content and links in FarsiNet to be a blessing to the visitor to come to know Jesus.

There are some organizations and individuals who have tried in many ways to hinder God's work thru Farsinet and our only and best defense is our prayers. Some have attacked FarsiNet server from Iran and other Muslim countries but our prayers in the name of Jesus has saved the website over and over. Others have tried to place pronographic material on FarsiNet by various methods - again our prayers and daily reliance on the Holy Spirit has protected the website and our visitors.

So, please keep FarsiNet and all the people who help with this ministry in your prayers and if you see improper Ads on FarsiNet - click on the Ad and get their web address ( for example and send it to us for immediate action.

Thanks, God Bless and In Jesus, FarsiNet WebMaster

  Hi - I was so surprised to see an Iranian site like yours. I am impressed with your Mission statement and what you stand for. Awesome! I am not a religeous person but I even enjoyed some of your Christin content.

I stumbled across your web page while researching the true origin of Good friday and of Easter. I did not know there were Persian Christians (please forgive my ignorance).

FarsiNet web site shows there are a true group of believers who are Persian. Please let me know who you are and your origin.

Also do you have any information regarding the term "Good Friday" and the term "Easter."

Best regards, Lemuel - Temecula, California

Hello Lemuel,

As you may know, Iran used to be called Persia up to 1935 - at that time its name was changed to Iran. (

So, Persians are Iranian but not all Iranians are Persian. Each Time Iran was conquered by a new king or a new empire, some of those folks stayed behind and created a pocket of Arab Iranians, Mongol Iranians, Turkish Iranians, Kurdish Iranians, ....

Persia played a major role in the Old testament - read Daniel, Esther, ... (

In the new testament era - On the day of Pentecost, there were several groups from Iran (perhaps Jews who stayed in Iran after Cyrus freed them from Babylon) mentioned in the Book of Acts 2:5.

So, there are several Iranian Christian groups that go back to the day of Pentecost. Some writings suggest that those Persians who were present on the day of Pentecost, accepted Christianity and Jesus as the Messiah and went back to Persia (Iran) and started the Christian movement that grew up to the conquer of Iran by Muslim Army in 7th century. Many of these orthodox Christian groups as well as the Catholic believers were co-existing with their Muslim country folks till Islamic revolution happened in Iran in late 70s. In the past 25 years of Islamic government in Iran, majority of the orthodox Christians (Armenians, Assyrians, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, ...) as well as a large number of Iranian Catholics and Iranian born again Christians from Islamic, Jewish, Bahai,... backgrounds - all have been forced out of Iran and now live scattered all over the world.

In addition to hundreds of thousands of Iranian Armenian, Assyrian, ... thousands of Iranians have embraced Christianity in the past 25 years outside of Iran. To serve the Iranian Christians and to reach out to other Iranians in their communities, 100s of Iranian Christian Churches and Fellowship have taken shape over the last 10 years or so (

OK, I hope the above long answer was helpful.

As far as the term Good Friday and Easter - they go back to early years of Christianity and do not have anything to do with Persians or Persia - as far as I know.

Regards, Amir

Hello and congratulations for a well done job with farsinet website. I am surprised that I didn't know about your site till recently.

Initially I was very excited having found farsinet but then I started noticing the religeous stuff and that turned me off. I don't think we need any new or different religion. Iranian are in such a bad social and economical shape because of the religeous leaders.

I suggest farsinet stick with the cultural and literature content and leave religion for mullahs. Mohammad Z.

your site is nice and everthing, but in the religion section i didn't see anythink about islam. i mena it is the major religion of all persians. thanks. peace.

Dear Arash Salam,

Mercy for visiting FarsiNet and thank you for your feedback.

As I am sure you are aware, there are a dozen or so nicely done and well managed Islamic WebSites. So, I am sure the religion of the majority of Iranians is well presented on the net. You can find a comprehensive list of such websites in FarsiNet's PersianWeb © in Reliogion section;

Over 75% of Webpages hosted at FarsiNet are non-religous. Many of our pages are the result of someone's research and interest. If, what FarsiNet has to offer, does not seem interesting to you, Then best of luck with your journey in the endless CyberSpace, where the technology enables each one of us, each single individual, to express himself or herself and cherish the absolute freedom that is a God given right.

We do not have to follow the majority. We do not have to feel ashamed of our desire to stay free from forced ideologies. We do not have to feel guilty about following our hearts and our dreams. We do not have to feel guilty of choosing to represent a minority. We do not have to satisfy everybody. and we don't. There are a dozen people on FarsiNet WebTeam. I don't speak for them and they don't agree with all I said above, BUT we all believe in and understand the market that FarsiNet serves. Members of the FarsiNet Web Team are Christian, Moslem, Sufi, Buddhist & Bahai. And we don't have any Bahai, Hindu & Sufi Webpages either. FarsiNet is different and FarsiNet's market is distinct and well differentiated and I am glad you have noticed it as well.

From: C. A.

Can you tell me how you created the Farsi logo used in FarsiNet's News page?

I gather it's been created in a paint program of some sort. I'd love to know which support creation of Persian characters?

Also, do you know of any resources for creating/displaying farsi characters in text or on web pages. I've installed a Persian font in win 95 but not found that it enables me to create Persian characters directly in a standard word processor, even if I select the text and change it to that >font--though it does enable me to see the text on the some web sites.

Any help appreciated. Thanks

Dear C. A. Salam, The FarsiNet News Logo is a hand writing which then was scanned. I am not aware of any of the persian word processors offering one such font. Nash're Alef - Persian desk top publishing is probably the closest solution to a hand writing publishing. You can find additional info about Nash're Alef at

Installing a mere Farsi font is not enough for Farsi desk top publishing. You either need a dedicated program which provides a dedicated environment or you need to install Farsi Windows. The regular window does not inherently support non-latin fonts.

Eventhough I have not used it myself, but I have seen people who use Microsoft word and other word processors in Farsi Windows operating system for Farsi word processing. you can check Peyvand's Persian HTML creation & display information page at for further information.

Don't loose heart though, native support of Farsi HTML is coiming soon to your favorite browsers and popular web publishing programs such as Microsoft FrontPage will also provide multi lingual content generation soon.

I am interested in learning Persian ( the motivation comes from being able to read the untranslated version of Omar Khayyam). There are no courses offered here in Pittsburgh, PA in persian, so I would appreciate if you could give me some pointers on either basic books which I can use to learn persian.

Hello L., Thanks for visiting FarsiNet site. We are glad you find it interesting and useful.

The following response is provided by Consultants at RimaTech Inc..

The following is the list of common features for LapTops and their minimum requirements for a mobile/desktop publishing/WebAccess computer to last for a few years.
LapTop Features, Options and Terminology
Processor: Pentium 75 Mega Hertz minimum. Pentium 100 and 133 mega hertz is preferred.
Memory: 16 Meg of RAM memory is minimum. 32 Meg RAM is preferred.
Display: Color 9 inch Dual Scan (minimum) Active Matrix is a better quality display and several $100s more. Active matrix can be viewed at an angle where is Dual Scan doesn't show much at an angle. i.e. The person next to you doesn't see much, but Active Matrix lets people sitting next to you in the plane (even across the Isle) to have a reasonable view.

Best Mobile/Desktop Setup:

Dear L., A perfect office/home/mobile setup would be one of the following LapTops + a 15 or 17 inch Color monitor + a keyboard and mouse. If you can find a high quality LapTop CD with a 17 inch color monitor + keybord + mouse + 28.8K Modem + carrying case for $2500 or less, BUY IT.

When at home, just connect your LapTop to the monitor and keyboard and use it as a desktop computer. When you are ready to hit the road, just take the laptop and GO.

Subject: Do you hate my Israeli guts?

You guys are supposed to be from Iran and to hate my Israeli guts, you are supposed to swear at me and tell me I am a pig. come on you guys, bomb me, I want a little action... this sucks.


Shalom. Hope all is well on your side.

The FarsiNet Team is 50% Iranian and 50% American. I took a vote and I am sorry to say nobody here hates Israel or any Israeli. Everybody had something to say about some issues about Israel Government or its foriegn policies, but nobody, especially the Iranian Gang has any specific hate towards Israel. My own opinion is that we are so busy with our jobs and businesses and family and enjoying life here in beautiful Texas, that we haven't had time to hate anybody or pick a fight.

I hope this lack of hate for you or Israel does not disappoint you. As a matter of fact, one of our team members works with several Israeli's at the IBM Haifa Lab (Yossi, Aron, Yaron, Amir,...). Nader, another team member says when he lived in San Diego, he had a Jewish roommate. A very cool guy, a mathematician, very smart and one of the best chess players he had ever had the chance to play chess with. He also has a Mesianic Jewish Friend in California.

He is a cool Iranian Jewish dude who know believes in Jesus as his promissed Messiah. His parents have now moved from Iran to Israel.

FarsiNet Hosts a funnies WebPage called Jafang ( which means nonsense, rubish. One of the major contributors to this page is follower of Judism from New York and thru email we have become good friends.

You know what, I got it. The reason we (The farsi speaking memebers of FarsiNet Team) don't have any strong feeling towards Israel, is because we have lived outside of Iran for a while (10+ years). Maybe we have forgotten some of the Middle Eastern traditional stuff - like hating, fighting, blood, anger, war, fear, ... We have been busy learning and experiencing the other side of the same coin (peace, love, joy, enjoying life and keeping ourselves busy and out of trouble.

Anyway, Thank you for visiting FarsiNet and We hope you come back again. - Koroush

Subject:What is the global persian community

I liked the statement at the bottom of farsinet page. But I don't understand what you mean by global persian community.

Sima, "The Persian Global Community" refers to over 70 millions of Iranians/Persians in the world. In reality, as far as Internet access/communication is concerned, it refers to all Iranians/Persians who have access to the internet and utilize internet for communication and infotainment and edutainment. As this technology becomes more widespread and accessible and available in Iran, then all persians will be able to interact and communicate as a community via internet, regardless of where they live in the world.

Subject: Good Job & Thank you

Congradulation on a good job with farsinet website. Thank you for taking the time and collecting all these interesting information. Please don't get too commercialized and pay more attention to content rather than fancy graphics.

Subject: School project, can I use farsinet

Salaam. I am 15 years old and I am in high school in florida. I am doing a project for my history class and I am trying to find good stuff on internet. My dad got me started. I found farsinet and I like all historical stuff and graphics. Can I print some for my project? Can I use farsinet for my project? My dad is going to program my project and put it on the internet. He asked me to ask you if he could use some of farsinet stuff and also link it.

mercy, Reza

Dear Reza,

Please feel free to link to FarsiNet or any of its webpages in your project webpage. If you like to use the graphics, copy them to your own computer and then upload to your ISP account. If you like you can mention in your report where you got the graphics, etc. Good luck with your report and please let us know if we can be of further help.

Subject: A Note of Appreciation

I am very intrigued (and, happy, I might say) to discover these pages. An American myself, my roots go deep in Iran, and I am grateful that someone has created these pages for the public good. It is, however, a shame, that the English text is somewhat "bumpy." I wished you could have a careful editting of the texts so that all--images, texts, and contexts--would bring harmony to your intentions; Good work, and I say, bravo. Gratefully yours,

R. O.
