funny that haaretz seems to think derakhshan is some sort of exemplary figure in the iranian blogging scene, when for those of us who read the iranian blogs he's seen as a self promoting opportunist who speaks for very few. he's pretty strongly criticised for his stupid ideas about both israeli and iran: both are not free. how in the world can one say that repressive regime in iran is free? how can one say that an ethno-nationalist apartheid system like israel's is free? derakhshan is a moron.
