The great Persian Emperor Darius, returned with glory from Babylon, Egypt, Libya, Anatolia and even Thrace but he failed to taste victory in the Greek lands. Xerxes, who wanted to accomplish what his father hadn’t, began to plan the conquest of the Greek lands.
Zoroastrian polymaths thought that their religion would be in danger if the king of kings, Xerxes, were to lose a campaign in the Greek lands. In order to ensure the continuation of their faith they appointed four particular clans, three to be dispatched across the vast Persian lands and one to remain in Persepolis, that would carry on the traditions throughout the generations.
Would at least one of the three clans that were sent to various parts of the kingdom survive the ages to preserve the holly scripture written on cow skin in gold known as Avesta? How and by whom would the Avesta that was written by the wise priest 500 years before Christ be discovered in the early 2000’s?
Why doesn’t the British-Indian ancient Avestan expert Nasreddin Parsi, who regarded Nietzsche’s “Thus spoke Zarathustra” as “complete nonsense”, keep his true identity and his real intentions a secret from his Turkish helper Sungur Ilyas? Will the British researcher be able to get the answer he is looking for from the Zoroastrian beauty?
Will the PKK theorist Hoca, who believes that the Kurds should be separated from the Turks, Persians, Arabs, Chaldeans and Armenians, use his chance wisely?
Who will be the victor of the breath-taking struggle, that spans from the PKK camps in Kandil, Iraq and Kozares, Iran to capitals around the world such as London and Paris?
