IRNA: "Movie called `300' insults culture of world countries"

This reminds me of all the angry articles that appear in the Iranian Press whenever someone uses the term "Arabian Gulf" instead of "Persian Gulf." Does this really mean to deny that there were Greek-Persian wars?
Government spokesman, Gholam-Hossein Elham said Tuesday that the movie called `300' insults the culture of world countries.

The statement was made in response to the question raised about the anti-Iran movie dubbed `300'.

The government spokesman referred to the movie as part of the extensive cultural aggression aiming to degenerate cultures of world states.

Elham noted that the Iranian nation and those involved in cultural activities will respond to such a cultural aggression.

The new movie `300' was produced in Hollywood based on Frank Miller's graphic. It was directed by Zack Snyder.

The movie has fabricated the history with depicting a war between Iran and Greece, whereas, no Greek king dared to stand up to the Persian Empire or the Emperor Xerxes.

Though Sparta's King Leonidas cherished such a dream, but, he lost his head and Iranian fighters threw his head before Emperor Xerxes's feet and told him that he had attempted a suicide attack to Persian Army.
