Iran has banned the new film 300, siting the portrayal of the 2,500-year-old Battle of Thermopylae is “cultural and psychological warfare” against the country.
Government spokesman Gholam-Hussein Elham is calling Zack Snyder’s movie insulting to Iranians.
Already a small group of parliament members have prodded Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki as well as Culture and Islamic Guidance Minister Mohammad Hussein Saffar-Harandi to seek other Muslim countries to ban the “anti-Iranian” movie.
300 depicts the ancient Battle of Thermopylae where Spartan King Leonidas led only 300 men to fight off an attack of the massive Persian army.
The movie shows the Persians as being ruthless & constantly outsmarted by the Greeks.
I’m going to leave this one up to you. What do you think about this new development?
