Once upon a time; Persian Gulf

Some days ago, new National Geographic's map was published with a great unexpected mistake! The National Geographic editors have written Arabian Gulf in parentheses in front of The Persian Gulf in their middle-east map!

If you refer to UN documents and maps, also historical ones, you will not find any gulf named Arabian and you will not find any island named 'Occupied by Iran' that belongs to any other country!
In these years, the Arabian countries and governors have tried to change Persian Gulf to Arabian one and they have published lots of papers named map (!) to reach their goal. But they have not succeeded to change the truth and the history.

After publishing that fake map by National Geography, Iranian Bloggers have signed a petition to object this mistake. If you prefer the Persian gulf to Arabian one please go and sign the petition.
Also if you have a website or weblog, please link to this Arabian Gulf!

"with a great unexpected mistake" !!!
It's beed intended and done deliberateley.
They should place "occupied by arabs(Mullahs and their British Islamic Republic)" under the name of Iran on the map.
Bahrain is also seperated from Persia by the british imperial government in 1970 and they're planning to separate Tunb and Abumusa Islands as well because they know persians are not like arab terrorists.

Hamidreza jaan, if you're a muslim, your religion and the language of allah is also arabic, PAS don't worry! The only true mistake on the american-arabian geographic map is that there is not any comment regarding "occupied by british arabs" under the names of Iran and Bahrain.

It's not a good idea to link that yahoo page without any additional comment, it obviously supports Arabs in every paragraph of the document.
