The Expatriate

An Iranian man talks about the country he left and how much he misses her, adding:

No, I am not a terrorist nor a wife beater,
I don’t live in a tent in a desert

I speak Farsi, not Arabic
Iran is pronounced “EERAUN” and not “I – ran” (it’s not track & field)

News flash: Iran and Iraq are two different countries ,
Middle east is a region and NOT a continent,
And camels are not our way of transportation.

Iranian women are just as outspoken (if not more) and liberal as the
European women,

Iran is the first country to have red white and green for a flag,
A beautiful country ran by the wrong people
But still the best part of Middle East

I couldn’t have said it better…

  1. Hello,

    My name is Arman Nafisi-Movaghar and I am currently doing an undergraduate honors research study for the Department of Communication at the University of Washington on blogs by Iranians living outside of Iran. I am interested in seeing how Iranians in the diaspora are using their blogs and specifically if they are promoting democratic values on their blogs. To help answer this question, I created a survey for Iranian bloggers living outside of Iran to complete. Since you are an Iranian living outside of Iran who maintains a blog, I would like to invite you to take my survey. The purpose of the following paragraphs is to give you the information you will need to help you decide whether or not to participate in the survey. Please read this information carefully.

    Purpose:
    To see how Iranians in the diaspora are using their blogs and specifically if they are promoting democratic values on their blogs.

    Procedure:
    My survey asks a few demographic questions regarding age, gender, and education level. In addition, my survey also will ask for your opinion about democracy and whether you think blogs can be used to promote democracy in Iran. The survey is short and will only take 15-20 minutes to complete. You are also free to skip any question on my survey that you don’t want to answer.

    This survey is anonymous. Thus, your responses are not linked to your name. In addition, the survey answers will be confidential and will not be seen by anyone else.

    Expected Benefits:
    To understand if and/or how Iranians in the diaspora are using blogs to communicate with Iranians inside Iran. I also hope to discover if Iranians are using their blogs to promote democratic changes in Iran. If you would like to see the results of the survey at the conclusion of my study, feel free to contact me and I will email them to you.

    Sincerely,
    Arman Nafisi-Movaghar
