Mahmoud: Bloggers will be Removed

In Iran: One by one, websites and blogs…
-Are taken down- Mahmoud's greatest enemy:
"His insecurity."
Iranian authorities have taken an uncompromising stance
on Internet bloggers & have removed a large number of the
nation's estimated: 70,000 to 100,000 bloggers, by
-harassment or imprisonment-
His regime, has now acknowledged the monitoring of text
messaging traffic. Apparently began, in the run-up to the
presidential election last June, as it threatens by terror...
"And to show you just how immature
all of this all is, according to payvand"...
Tehran, 14 April -(AKI)
Iran's hard-line president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has
apparently been incensed by an anonymous text message...
Suggesting: "He does not wash enough."
Ahmadinejad has taken legal action over the offending
text, by firing the president of a phone company and
has had four people arrested and accused of colluding
with the Israeli foreign intelligence service, Mossad...

While the outcome of the recent arrests in connection with
SMS messaging is not clear yet, what is certain is that SMS
jokes have already put some people into serious trouble.
Poking fun at the president, the regime's senior figures, and
its policies, has reportedly become a national pastime in Iran.
The Iranian authorities are paying particular attention to jokes
comparing Iran's nuclear program with sex. Several people
are widely believed to have received court summonses for
sending nuclear-related jokes...(source: payvand)
Enough of that, Ahmadinejad is certainly
disliked, but successful support for
new press laws have just begun...
New Developments with Journalism Laws:

According to- Mshari Al-Zaydi 26/03/2006:
In Kuwait, journalists celebrated as parliament approved the new
press law. The new law, as described to the colleague Ahmad Issa
by a follower of Kuwaiti affairs, would pave the way for the
licensing of new publications and bar the government from
suspending newspapers without a judicial order.

European Parliament announces
support for democracy in Iran
The European Parliament passed a resolution on May 14,
expressing solidarity for the victims of Iranian government
terrorism and announcing that it "supports all the democrats
opposed to the present Iranian regime who are fighting to
establish a truly democratic and secular state in Iran." The
resolution urged the European Union "to put a definite end to
the 'critical dialogue' with the regime and to enhance dialogue
with all those promoting the transformation of Iran into a
democratic state."
No specific groups were mentioned in the statement, which also
condemned "in the sharpest possible terms the persistent acts
of state terrorism perpetrated by the Iranian government at
home and abroad." [EP statement 5/14]
