Arabic And Farsi

Back in the old days, Iraq used to be a part of the Persian Empire.

Language wise, Farsi and Arabic are very dissimilar.

Every language borrowed foreign words. Not really surprising if Arabs borrowed words from Persians and vice versa.

As i am an iranian, l should say that if you check out persian dictionaries u will find out that almost 40 percent of persian words are arabic and almost 8 to 10 percent of that are english,french,turkish,greek,russian & etc.so persian language has more than 50 percent pure persian words.by the way our grammar,our pronounciation and even meaning of some arabic words in persian differ with arabic language.i have two arab classmates but i can just understand about 5 percent of their words and so do they.

Umm..your reply is stupid.

I never said those dishes were Iraqi, I said they're eaten in both countries.

Iraq happens to be the melting pot of Turkish, Aramaic, Arab, and Persian food.

As for the looks department, there are attractive and ugly people everywhere; I was commenting on the obvious fact that intermarriages between Persians and Iraqis are common, hence the similar features.

I am sorry about my fellow Iranian insulting your people's looks, what an ignorant and bigoted thing to say! I love my Iraqi brothers and sisters. Best wishes to you my friend!
