Hoder banged up (?)

Apparently, Hossein Derakhshan may face the death penalty in Iran on allegations of spying for Israel.

As far as I understand, 'Hoder' is, first, a proud Iranian nationalist. To him this seems to mean supporting a strong Iran -- complete with its Islamic Revolution, nuclear (weapons) power and all -- a nation ready to engage in dialogue with other countries from a position of strength.

Those who, reportedly, had him arrested don't seem to have got that.

P.S. Solana Larsen cautions on rumours, and says:

Certainly, the comments on the GV note indicate sharply diverging views as to what may be going on.
