President Obama sends message to Iranian people
President Obamas Nowruz Message

President Obama sends an important message to those celebrating the holiday of Nowruz. At a time of great regional change and renewal, the President this year speaks directly to the Iranian people, in particular the Iranian youth. ...you the young people of Iran carry within you both the ancient greatness of Persian civilization, and the power to forge a country that is responsive to your aspirations. Your talent, your hopes, and your choices will shape the future of Iran, and help light the world. And though times may seem dark, I want you to know that I am with you, he says.

<...>

Read the President's Message in: Arabic (pdf) | Persian (pdf)

May all those who celebrate Nowruz around the world embrace the power of youth, and have a peaceful and prosperous new year.

4. I think we use a lot of social networks to distribute these types of messages directly to the people
andy bypass their government.

I remember when the State Dept started to tweet in Farsi. :)

6. Al Jazzerra is not the government.
I am aware that the state department is using the social networks. But just like the US - the older generation still watches tv.

5. Just looking forward to Ahmadinejad`s X-mas message to the American youth.
Since when has a foreign president to address holidays of a nation?

Or is the message: Look at Libya, get out on the streets, and we'll come in bombing your regime away.
Btw, don't look at Bahrain.
