President of Iran launches blogSunday, August 13, 2006 at 9:03 pm | Posted in News | Leave a comment
Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started a new blog today. In his first entry, Ahmadinejad writes about his life and criticizes the United States.
The first massive paragraph reads:
During the era that nobility was a prestige and living in a city was perfection, I was born in a poor family in a remote village of Garmsar-approximately 90 kilometer east of Tehran. I was born fifteen years after Iran was invaded by foreign forces- in August of 1940- and the time that another puppet, named mohammad Reza – the son of Reza Mirpange- was set as a monarch in Iran. Since the extinct shah -Mohammad Reza- was supposed to take and enter Iran into western civilization slavishly, so many schemes were implemented that Iran becomes another market for the western ceremonial goods without any progress in the scientific field. Our Islamic culture would not allow such an infestation, and this was an impediment in front of shah and his foreign masters’ way. Thus, they decided to make this noble and tenacious culture weak gradually that Iran be attached strongly to the west as far as its economy, politics, and culture was concern. After the implementation of this policy and the unreal and outward of upswing, the villagers began to rush to the cities. Upon the enforcement of the land reform, the status of the villages became worst than the past and villagers for earning some breadcrumbs, they were deceived by the dazzling look and the misleading features of the cities and became suburban and lived in ghettos.
You take a look at Ahmadinejad’s blog here, just click on the little American flag icon in the upper right hand corner. The blog also has a poll which asks, “Do you think that the US and Israeli intention and goal by attacking Lebanon is pulling the trigger for another word war?”
Lastly, there’s a form where people can send their questions to Ahmadinejad. My question would be: President Ahmadinejad, why are you such a anti-semitic douchebag?
EDIT: There have been people wondering if the blog is a hoax or not. I don’t know either, but for now I’ll consider it real.
