Jason Reza Jorjani is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, and Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat.
Here he equates the legendary Amazons of ancient Greek literature with the Sarmatians, a northern Aryan people who were closely related to the Scythians. They established a loose federation extending from the Gobi desert to Catalonia. The Sarmatian queen Tomyris defeated the Persian emperor, Cyrus, in single combat and beheaded him. These people, also known as the Alons, brought their culture of chivalry and romance into Europe. They are also closely associated with legends of dragons.
Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. He is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment. Therefore we have set up this “Go Fund Me” page in order to assist this worthy individual.
