I was happy to find out that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a Blogger just like me. Look at his blog:
Interested to know what are his views on Israel as a blogger, I wander around his blog , but to my regret I found nothing newer than his well known official statements. So I wrote in the search box ‘Israel’ under ‘comments’ and get the following results:
A further step into his blog, takes me to the link of the Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei (see here). There, under the label Membership, I tried to sign up under ’General members’, hoping to receive in my inbox the latest news provided with other useful information. But without success. I could not write my name in Arabic ( the only language) and under ‘Country’ Israel is omitted , look:
If this is Israel’s fate then what about Palestine? Well she exist and is called ‘Palestine (Occupied)’, look:
Now this seems to pose some problems. For example, a good koscher Israeli citizen, wanting to sign up for a newsletter, if he is not fluent in Arabic, needs the help of an Jewish Israeli knowing Arabic or an Israeli Arab. Supposing he overcome the hindrance, then he has to lie, and under ‘country’ write, for example, Belgium, a not very moral behavior when signing up to the newsletter of the Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei.
But what about an Israeli Arab who wants to sign up for the newsletter? If he signs up under country ’Palestine (Occupied)’, he will not lie in the Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenein context, but his dilemma is: does he really wants to live in today’s Palestine ? If no, he to is lying to the Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei. Not very nice.
On the same Presidents Ahmidinejad blog there is a link to PRESSTV ( Iranian international news network, broadcasting in English) where I found the headline : ‘Syria: Israel behind Beirut bombing‘ (12 Dec 2007). Well my god, here Israel suddenly is a well know state coming back to life. Not a very coherent blog…
Finally I quote..”Mohammad Ali Abtahi, a former vice president who updates his own blog daily, is not impressed with Mr. Ahmadinejad’s blog, calling the president’s site’just a formality.’ “. see here…Life is really complicated.
