censor & re-write

Michael Rubin on National Review Online weblog:

    A lot of officials imagine Iran to be some diplomatic problem that can be solved if only we found a magic formula of incentives and, failing that, more incentives. To understand the spirit of the society, it can be useful to see how it deals with its own history. Tehran’s strategy: Censor and re-write.
An Islamic North Korea is in the making in the middle-east.
