Persian v. Arab weblogs
: Nima Arian (a commenter, below) points me to a post by Salam Pax expressing his jealousy over Iranian/Persian weblogs:

I am really jealous.

Salam’s own will, I hope, be the first of many.

    I got the “Sampax” allusion, though….

  • My guess is that the Iranians are more educated than their neighbor Arabs. I have seen Iranian students travelling to countries like Bangladesh to get higher education and then ofcourse going back to their own country. And so their minds are open wide resulting to creating vents and they usually do not have narrow views (religiously driven) like their neighbors.
