Iran launches its own YouTube version web-site

Iran has launched a video-sharing site in its latest effort to provide alternative government-sanctioned Internet services.

Dubbed “Mehr,” the Farsi word for affection, the site aims to attract Persian-speaking users and promote Iranian culture, according to the About Us page reviewed by the Agence France-Press.

“From now on, people can upload their short films on the Web site and access [IRIB] produced material,” said Lotfollah Siahkali, deputy chief of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.

The Iranian government has been waging a battle against what it calls “inappropriate” content on the Internet. The government announced in September that it would block its people’s access to Google’s search engine and Gmail in September, an apparent retaliation for an anti-Islamic film posted on the company’s YouTube site that caused outrage throughout the Muslim world.

At the same time, a government deputy minister announced that the government was moving ahead with much-rumored plans to create a domestic Internet as a way to improve cybersecurity. All government agencies and offices have already been connected to the “national information network,” according to a Reuters report at the time that indicated the next step was to connect citizens to the network.

The country has reportedly been developing a national interanet in an effort to create “a clean Internet.” The Iranian government denied those reports, but the Iranian media say the domestic system would be fully implemented by March 2013, Reuters reported. Still unclear whether access to the World Wide Web would be cut once the Iranian system is rolled out.

Iranian Internet users have grown accustomed to censorship. The country’s government cut off access to the Internet a few times earlier this year, the latest of which blocked access to all encrypted international sites outside the country that operate on Secure Sockets Layer protocol. Many Iranians use proxy servers over Virtual Private Networks to circumvent government efforts to block access to foreign news sites and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

    What the hell is ‘farsi’? It is called Persian, stupid. It is interesting that this Ashkenazi-Anglo-run website is being obviously made to look like it is from “Lebanon”, and it is feeding us the exact same propaganda using the exact same wording…

     Anyway, it looks like it is being blocked by u.s censors. not surprsing because Starbuck’s took the lead in censoring Iran-based sites such as PressTV from their “free” internet at their disgusting iCoffee shops, while at the same time, flashing the Jew York Times, Wall Street Jewrnal, MSNBC, Slate,BBC, Reuters in your face when you first log in…one of the reasons I don’t go to Star(of David)buck’s or any of its affiliates. Obviously according to Star(ofDavid)Buck’s rules we are only allowed to see the Anglo and Ashkenazi lies of the controlled media

    Funny tags on this jewish/britis article. “Dictorship”, “Censorship”, etc.You anglo-jews don’t miss a beat

    People, THIS IS NOT A LEBANESE WEB SITE! There are many sites similar to this that claim to be from African countries, lebanon, Libya, etc. They are ALL U.S based jewish american spoof sites!

      whats a kike

      • 5thDrawer

        Try wikipedia …. or any number of other dictionaries.
        A dictionary is a book of the meanings of words. Made of paper.
        Perhaps from before your time, but you could learn some history about that. Too.

    • 5thDrawer

      Anyone who signs onto it should know what YaLibnan is … or any site for that matter, since there is an ‘About’ and ‘Home’ info for any site.
       Duuhhh …
      You posted on it, didn’t you? Lebanese post freely on it, don’t they? Others do too. Idiots with nothing to contribute but foul language are turfed out, we all hope. Why not contribute something real to a discussion, rather than trying to trash a site verbally?
