The older I get, the more aware I am of my duty to inspire youth and to transmit what I have learned. The way doesn't matter, I know I’ll find mine.
French Actor, Traveler, Dreamer Antoine Michel
By Azad Karimi
How much do your dreams mean to you? To what extent do you pursue your dreams? Basically, how much of your material and spiritual capital have you invested to achieve your dreams? Are your dreams just a raw fantasy and you see it as a fleeting dream and nothing else?... or are you basically one of those people who make your dreams come true by destroying the wishes of others? Usually, our human desires are many and some desires are very many and never end. Of course, many of these desires, if fulfilled, will improve the quality of life, and unfortunately, some of these desires are the cause of destruction and destruction.
But I think it is good that we humans have dreams and strive to make them come true. If not, it means the end of our lives, and I believe we still have a long way to go to end our lives.
My dear friend Antoine, in addition to fantasy and acting, loves to travel, and that is very good. World history has recorded the names of famous tourists such as Marco Polo, Magellan, Christopher Columbus, Ibn Battuta, Saadi, Jean Chardin and ...
Thanks to these persons, we have a lot of information about the ancient world and the customs of different peoples and societies.
Trade and pilgrimage to holy places was the primary motive for early tourist travel, but later political motives were added to this issue ...
In the twentieth century, due to the facilitation of consular affairs and advances in international law, and the emergence of advanced transportation facilities, it has caused many trips among the people of the world with distant destinations as well as the discovery of unknown areas in the north and south of the earth or the discovery of unknown areas in Africa and Amazon.
The tourism industry is now a key element in attracting capital and creating jobs in countries. Countries such as Egypt, France, the United States, Spain, Italy, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland and Turkey and Greece are leading the way, but Turkey is trying to destroy the history and culture of Kurdistan by destroying, forgetting, and ignoring the historical sites of Kurdistan in the east of the country and by deliberately destroying the historical city of Hasn-Kev by building a dam on the Tigris water. The fascist Turkish government would rather lose millions of dollars in tourism revenue, but destroy all things that manifest the identity and history of the ancient Kurdish nation. This sadism is also followed by the Iranian governments against the ancient and historical places of Kurdistan in the west of this country. Iranian Kurdistan is the land of ancient mummies but the state mafia secretly makes millions of dollars by smuggling and selling them, destroying the history of the Kurds.
I learned that in the city of Saqez, where I was born, several mummies have discovered this week whose fate no one knows. This city is recorded in history as Shuropak Gaubaro and is the birthplace of the Prophet Zoroaster and his burial place. In this city, there was a place called Arianimvaicha, or the spring of bitter water, whose fire temple was a place of worship for Mithra worshipers and Zoroastrians for thousands of years.
I wish the Kurds had an independent state for themselves to protect the manifestations of their history and civilization so that the foreigners could not plunder and destroy this beautiful and ancient land with these barbaric and uncivilized methods ....This is my wish!
In the end, I wish my dear friend Antoine happiness and prosperity. I thank him for trusting me and participating in this international cultural project.
