Persian Gulf

I started this web log with posts about National geographic shameful act in changing the name of Persian Gulf to "Arabian Gulf", after thousands of e-mails and phone calls and pressure by NGOs, National Geographic finally apologized and corrected that mistake on their atlas, but here is an article in Persian explaining how we can secure this victory and not let it happen again in shargh newspaper in Tehran, that latest case that appeals to Iranian-Canadians in particular is the message by Governor General of Canada, Adrienne Clarkson, for new years that called the Persian Gulf, Arabian Gulf again. Here is their contact info. Don't give up, send her e-mails with her full title and respectfully remind her that "Arabian gulf" is a wrong name and that National geographic made the same mistake and corrected it.
