Hossein Derakhshan (a.k.a. Hoder) is already effectively exiled from his Iranian homeland for his truth-telling blog that challenges censorship and totalitarianism (including that of the U.S.). He is still the most-read blogger in Iran (being locked out of the U.S. although he’s a Canadian citizen) and has led a grassroots media revolution there.
Now he’s travelling to Israel to give Iranians perspective on that nation. You can donate by PayPal to support his effort.
As a citizen journalist, I’m going to show my 20,000 daily Iranian readers what Israel really looks like and how people live there. The Islamic Republic has long portrayed Israel as an evil state, with a consensual political agenda of killing every single man and woman who prays to Allah, including Iranians.
I’m going to challenge that image.
