Hossein Derakhshan

This from The Guardian: "A prominent Iranian blogger has been arrested in Tehran and accused of spying for Israel after visiting the country with the aim of being 'a bridge between Iranian and Israeli people.'" The blogger, Hossein Derakhshan, who is now a Canadian citizen traveling on a Canadian passport, has allegedly confessed to espionage. Maybe. But I have severe doubts that he did so without the persuasive assistance of the Iranian authorities. You can read the entire Guardian report here.
