A few months before the U.S. presidential elections of 2008, many of us Iranians would say “Yup… I knew it from the beginning… of course he is secretly an Iranian…” while referring to you! Most didn’t know this claim’s origin, not even the editors of the conservative Kayhan daily who published it as an exposé. Indeed it was a hoax, published on iTanz, a satirical Persian website. And it was invented by an Iranian satirist – me!
