That preamble ("We are the sons of Mesopotamia, land of the prophets, resting place of the holy imams, the leaders of the civilization and the creators of the alphabet, the cradle of arithmetic...") has got to be one of the world's greats.

The "cradle of arithmetic"? Maybe that's why Douglas J in Griswold v Connecticut, 381 US 479 (1965) thought "older than our school system..." was constitutionally relevant.
