From Orthodox photos website publications with the additions and explanations’ by Hamma Mirwaisi so the article will be more meaning full. There are so many hands for last 2500 years trying to erase the history of Mede (Kurds) by giving miss information’s. In my upcoming book “Iran and Iranians’ Enemies with the Same DNA” after many years of research I found out the truth about the origin of Kurds and their civilizations. We Kurds are the children of Magi - the Three Wise Men visited Jesus of Nazareth at birth because according to their calculations he was the Messiah.

We Kurds are educating ourselves with knowledge like our forefathers Magi to reclaim our glory days back. We are getting organized day after day in every field to defend ourselves against those who want to erase our identities. Here is an example how others denied our right by confusing the readers even after Prophet Daniel was very clear and wrote that the King was from Mede Empire. The name was “Darius of Mede” so what ambiguity are there people. There are thousand of lie about our forefather and our people the Mede (Kurds). We are finding out the truth now a day thanks to the internet ages. The new technology allowing our people free communications around the world. The Kurds and other Iranian pens that care about our people are writing the truth. No more lie will work on us. We are changing the world opinion about our people.

We are already liberated people spiritually. We will get liberated physically soon. The Kurds are united people today and alive. I am calling on them to revive the Median Empire with an “Economic Union” from Pakistan to Turkey and from Kurdistan to former Soviet Union countries. We are more than three hundred million people. The UN recognized our National days the Newroz. The Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) was trying to erase our heritage for the Arabs. We are getting united with Persian people day after day just look at the Persian singers shows in south Kurdistan, they are getting millions of Kurds to enjoy their songs. We are the same people with the same language; the Shi’a Islam is not capable to divide us any more.

We are building democratic systems with the rule of laws like our forefather the Emperor Dayukku and Cyrus the Great. We are uniting with the Europeans’, Australian and North American people. The Arabs and Turks won’t be able to stop us.,

Emperor Darius of Mede (Cyaxaras II) of Median Empire son of Emperor Astyages and Grandson of Emperor Cyaxaras II (Uvaxshtrahyah) came to love Daniel and made him one of the three main rulers in his kingdom; the King thought to set him over the whole realm. Other important persons envied Daniel and decided to kill him. They knew that three times a day Daniel prayed to God, opening the window toward Jerusalem. Therefore, they came to the King and asked him to establish a royal statute that within thirty days,
www.ekurd.netwhosoever shall ask a petition of any god or man, save the King, should be cast into a den of lions. The King agreed. But the Prophet Daniel, as before, did not cease to pray to God every day and beg His mercy. His enemies reported this to the King. Then Darius understood that he had been deceived, but he was unable to change his order, and he was compelled to permit Daniel to be thrown to the lions.

The next day, early in the morning, the King hurried to the lions’ den and cried, "Daniel, servant of the living God! Is thy God, whom you serve continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?" (Dan. 6:20).

Daniel answered him from the den, "O king! My God hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, forasmuch as before Him innocency was found in me; and also before thee O king, have I done no hurt" (Dan. 6:21-22).

The King then commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den, and they cast his accusers into the den of lions. Before they had even come to the bottom of the den, the lions seized them and broke all their bones in pieces.

Then King Darius wrote a decree. I make a decree, that in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for He is the living God, and steadfast forever, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall be even unto the end (Dan. 6:26).

The Prophet Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius of Mede and in the reign of Cyrus the Great of Median Empire. He made many predictions which were later fulfilled.

Daniel predicted the birth of Christ the Saviour precisely in seventy weeks of years, that is, in 490 years. He predicted also that Christ would be put to death, and after Him would follow the destruction of the Temple and city and the cessation of the Old Testament sacrifices (Dan. 9:23-27).

Note: See the Book of Daniel.
