The British Museum donates the Cyrus Cilinder to the National Museum in Tehran, after the fall of the current Iranian regime.
Bring the clay back home for peace. The scriptures and this cilinder were written by human beings, the majority male. In our times the scriptures and this cilinder are interpreted by human beings, still the majority male. It is high time to accept that a human being is not able to know the truth of god and to speak for him. Or is it her? A human being is able to show respect and to learn from errors in the past. We know very well the past of the United Kingdom in the Middle East. A gesture like this will bring major relaxation in the mutual relations between East and West. And that is what the world needs now.
