Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad posted his first blog entry at last Friday (Aug 11).

Iran is one of the few countries that has been censoring online information, it’s pretty irony that their President is writing his own blog when the country is not allowing the freedom of voices in the nation.

Ahmadinejad’s first article is pretty interesting though. It’s sort of his autobiography, and important events in Iran during his growing up.. including the Islamic revolution and the Iran-Iraq war.

Ahmadinejad didn’t hesitate to blame the ‘Great Satan’ USA and alliances for supporting terrorist groups in Iran during the revolution and supplying firepower for Iraq in the war against Iran.

Kudos to Ahmadinejad for keeping track with global trend, by writing a blog he will at least manage to convey his messages directly to worldwide readers.

An excerpt from his blog entry..

The (Iraq-Iran) war ended and in a situation when all the international organizations strived very hard to distort and hide the facts that Saddam was the aggressor and that the arrogant powers had fully supported him.

For those who were not aware of the close working of these international organizations and arrogant powers of the world, this indifference to and distortion and hiding of the facts was a very shocking experience.

As all parties tend to issue self-protect stories in all crisis, it’s difficult to determine on who’s telling the truth, there’s possibly no real facts.. it’s a matter of who we choose to believe.

One thing for sure though, the President of Iran will provide the world a different point of view on the development of Middle East vs the West.

    Many governments are uncomfortable with the power of internet. In China, international search engine companies were made to toe the government line for strict censorship.

    Due to the looming threat of isolation , blog is one alternative for Iranian leadership to reach out the word.

    huZmid.. I have no doubt that blog is a great alternative for Iran President to reach the world where the informations are dominated by Western press.

    It’s just a bit irony that when the Iranian leader is trying to break free for more freedom in speech, his government is restricting their citizens to have the same privelege.
