Hossein Derakhshan is not the king of the Iranian bloggers. He is one of the most widely-disliked, least-respected bloggers in the Persian blogosphere. He has zero credibility, because over the last year he has systematically attacked political prisoners like Ramin Jahanbegloo and Akbar Ganji (who was jailed for six years and survived two hunger strikes) and defended the regime that imprisoned them - simply because they dared to express dissent. Derakhshan is a fraud, a liar and a charlatan, and it is a great pity that someone as intelligent as Meron Rappaport has given him positive publicity when he simply does not deserve it.
