Hoder’s op-ed

Hossein Derakhshan, now blogging from Israel, wrote an op-ed for The Times blaming the Bush Administration for bringing in radical Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by supporting a boycott of the election: “But the real problem here is that boycotting semi-democratic elections ultimately will not make such a system more democratic.”
