Anti-Iranian sentiment (احساسات ضدایرانی) is feelings and expression of hostility, hatred, discrimination, or prejudice towards Iran and its culture, and towards persons based on their association with Iran and Iranian culture. Its opposite is Iranophilia.
Historically, prejudice against Persians particularly on the part of Arabs following the Islamic conquest of Persia may be described as anti-Persian sentiment. More recently, anti-Iranian sentiment has been prominent also in the Western world and in international media.
