1. We love you !!
Hertzel ,   Tveria/Israel/USA   (03.06.13)
We love Rita, we hope the Iranian people will one day see the truth that Israel is not and never was an enemy to the Iranian nation, one of the very few that can claim a historical significance similar to the Jewish Nation.
2. Very nice but English is not an Ancient Language!
David ,   Israel   (03.06.13)
Actually it is a very young language from circa 500 AD or CE. Gallic is much older as are Latin, Greek, Aramaic and Egyptian.
3. English an ancient language?
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (03.06.13)
4. Rita at the UN
Sharon Bacher ,   Israel   (03.06.13)
A wonderful, heartwarming report.; a positive and respectful gesture
5. # 2 3 Rita sang in Farsi as the ancient language not English
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.06.13)
however, strictly speaking English is a combination of many words from many sources. Perhaps the main subject here is the power of music, whatever the lyrics?
6. Born when she was eight!
Eric ,   Toronto   (03.06.13)
I just watched the whole concert which is beautiful. But she makes a funny mistake when she opens. She says she was born in Iran when she was eight!
7. Nr.2.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (03.06.13)
All languages you have mentioned are under constant developement. So what do you mean ? Englis is a mix of Anglosaxian,Keltic(Gallic),French and Latin thoug, Enlish is an German Language from the Beginning, and Askenasim Language. And by the Way, all Indoeuropean,Semitic and Hamitic Languages was onse One. Arn.Sweden.

Allah dont listen to Peacemusic, Allahs demand is that the Unfaithfull shall be Killed. Arn. Arn.Sweden.
9. "Persian Born" doesn't mean anything.
Persian CAT   (03.06.13)
She was born in Iran and she, like many other Iranians, is a Semite. In fact Persia doesn't even exist!
10. Sorry to piss on your parade: I'm sick of loving gestures on
tom ,   tel aviv   (03.06.13)
OUR side! -Be that towards Arabs or Iranians or Muslims of any color& shape. How about some friggin' "gestures" towards Zion?!
11. to #10
Zuri ,   Glasgow, Scotland   (03.06.13)
Tom: so true, I think just like you,,,why only we always come up with the initiatives. Mind you if an Iranian will, they probably be executed,,, shame!!!
12. #9 cat
solomon ,   bklyn   (03.07.13) call yourself a cat from a country you say doesn't exist. But it did before, and it still exists now. Unlike "Palestine", which never existed as a country.
13. #1 Agree. Someday, Iranian people will see the truth
Carl ,   USA   (03.08.13)
that the mullahs and ayatollahs who rule Iran are enemies of the people and Israel is a true friend.

maybe she was nervous a bit? cut her some slack. she was indeed wonderful.

persia existed for thousands of years until you and the mullahs came in, destroyed the persian culture, arabized and islamized the country, desecrated its beauty and freedom of spirit and subjugated the persians to complete misery, bad economy, heroin addiction, death by hanging from cranes, women stoning, gay murder and hangings in town squares and a filthy society that is kept under a total control by religious maniacs that are not only barbarians, but backwards as well. the persia as we knew it is dead. because of people like you. the fanatics, the oppressors, the primitives. hameed aboughazem, proud persian
16. #15 hameed - kol hakavod
solomon ,   bklyn   (03.09.13)
I'm sorry to say that you hit the nail on the head. Thank you for reminding people of the real 'bottom line'. I wish it weren't true, but it is.
17. @ Persian CAT
Sima ,   Iran   (03.10.13)
Now are you Persian yourself denying anything Persian? What you mean but being Persian doesn't mean anything? In any case, the fact that Rita is singing in Persian, Hebrew and English amazingly in UN G. Assembly and calling for peace, is somthing that makes her belong to anyone in the world who Longs for peace and mutual respect.

Sima ,   Iran   (03.10.13)
SWe love Rita too :) Amen
