Rudi Bakhtiar, the American-Iranian journalist has backed me against Twitter and I am extremely grateful to her.
Rudi is petite and beautiful but most importantly she has the heart of a lioness. She has reported from some of the most dangerous situations and the word fear is not part of her vocabulary.
Rudi and I, may not always share the same political views but we both have a common trait; we can not stay silent when we see something wrong.
Last night she called me and expressed her outrage at Twitter's Thought Police closing my account.
Rudi is not going through easy times at the moment and I am not at liberty to talk about her current predicament until she permits me, making me even more indebted to her kindness, fairness and courage.
Thank you Rudi Bakhtiar.
