Depending on what language you want, you do not need translate in Google . . . it has links in upper right for English, French, & a couple of others.

The page you linked to is Farsi, not Arabic. Translating it with an Arabic->English translator will result in "garbage".

However, if you click the US/UK flag in the upper right, it will show you a human-translated version of the blog that reads just fine. Additionally, the third flag will display the page in Arabic, but because they use Javascript to "refresh" the page, Google's Arabic->English translator would just see the Farsi version.

Interestingly, I get a "Server too busy" error now. It seems the information has spread around the world by now... Anyway, has anyone suceeded in getting an English RSS feed from the site? Everything I tried resulted in Farsi feeds.

Of course you get only garbage. Have you heard him spew forth anything but garbage?

Of course, he did have a successful campaign in Lebanon. The world's focus is no longer on Iran's nuclear program. Iran seems to be the only winner in Hezbollah's latest terrorist attacks on Israel.

People may want to be careful when going to this blog. It looks like it may try to exploit holes in IE.

Here's a link to a blogger who explain it in more detail.

The link to the entire first post is in English is:

Of course, it's not working right now. (And it's rather long when it is working.) But you can see the beginning by clicking on the relevant flag.

And you can vote on the home page on the question, "Do you think that the US and Israeli intention and goal by attacking Lebanon is pulling the trigger for another word war?" (It's 58% "No", at the moment. I must admit, I like the translation "word war" instead of "world war." A word war, we can deal with – I'm less sanguine about a world war ....)

Several Israeli bloggers report that if you access the Ahmadenijad blog from an Israeli IP address the site sends you a little gift, a cyberattack in the form of a virus or trojan (reports vary) designed to exploit an Internet Explorer vulnerability.

don't scare of ahmedinejad. he won't kill you. muslims won't kill you. you only feel like muslims are terrorists. didn't you kill thousands of people in iraq? was iraq really developing nulcears? do you really think of that? see the truth. look for the truth. don't look for your friend – israel.

[put at-character here] John Smith :) (please come up with something more original next time)
The point of the thread wasn't to attack muslims, only to point people to a possible blog by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad so people might be able to make source an additional point of view. Your post is intentional bating people into an argument on a very heated subject that probably would be better suited for a different forum.
