Special Branch police are investigating the background of the male foreigner who set himself on fire in front of the Iranian embassy in Bangkok on Friday.

Why would he leave an Arabic note and speak Arabic?   That's not the native language of Iran

I expect, most likely, Persian looks and sounds Arabic to a Thai.....

He would look and sound arabic to anyone not from an arab state or iran.

Why is there a need to taint thais in this thread?

Could you tell the difference between a russian and eg a pole or a czech. Maybe a southern irish person from an ulster person?

Ridiculous.

For your information, I was not tainting the Thai People, Maybe it was written in the wrong context, Maybe I should have written...To a Thai person Arabic may sound the same as Persian....For which I apologise......sorry if I am not as perfect as your good self.......

Whilst we are on the subject, yes, I spent 22 years in the Middle East, and can tell the difference. I can also tell the difference between North and Southern Ireland.........Russian and Polish are also vastly dissimilar......

P.S. Get A life...

Rant over...
