Protest Against the British Council Use of arabian Gulf for Persian Gulf sign now


TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN:

We the undersigned, through this letter, protest your irresponsible and unscientific action by distributing and posting on your website David Graddol's new book, "Next English",(2006), which has on page 38 replaced the Persian Gulf with the fictitious name, "Arabian Gulf".

This letter is in concern with such publication of this book by your organization, which, according to all international organizations, is fraudulent and distorted, and its publication guarantees the violation of undeniable international legal rights.

It is a proven scholarly fact that the name of the Persian Gulf is a genuine name, with historical roots, and using any fraudulent names such as the Arabian Gulf is in fact inducing political animosity.

We did not expect British Council, as a prestigious international scientific institution, to ignore the proven obvious, and damage its own reputation on the basis of political intentions, and thus create an atmosphere of public mistrust in its content, and hurt the national pride of the millions of Persian speakers while doing so.

While announcing our disgust at such a heresy, we demand an immediate editorial review and correction of this publication by the British Council.

    As far as we are concerned, you can call it: "The Camel Jockey Gulf" since you're in cahoots with your agents in Iran.
