www.Iranian.com is a very well visited website which is educational, cultural and full of articles/news on Iran and Iranians. Mr. Ari Siletz of Iranian.com visited our rug gallery in Los Angeles last week with a mutual friend. My helpers were redecorating the store and Ari spoke with me for half an hour while he was scanning the surroundings with his sharp eyes. He also took some notes. He was interested in Persian rugs which are art on the floor and asked many good questions.
I am subscribed to Google alerts and received an e-mail notification this morning on the article that Iranian.com has published on me. Apparently this well liked website has a section named "Iranian of the day" and they decided to publish a report on what I do in that section.
The ranking of the Iranian.com is very high as it stands around 26,000 out of roughly 300 million websites on the Internet.
I wish them success and hope they can write an article on the Persian carpet embargo to let the policy makers know that these objects of art are made by the individual weavers in Iran who have nothing to do with politics.
