Several Islamist bloggers have launched a campaign against the Gaza Strip [1] blockade and to ask worldwide Muslims to help Palestinians. The bloggers have used different tools such as Google bombs [2] and banners [3] to spread in the blogosphere and promote the campaign.

Moreover, an association of Islamist bloggers called Paygahe Blogeraye Arzeshi [Fa] (which means a base of value oriented bloggers) has collected 500 links [4] to already published posts on this issue. Iranian FarsNews [Fa], a conservative and semi official site, has criticized [5] Islamist bloggers for their silence on humanitarian crisis in Gaza Strip.

Gaza Google bomb says [6]:

You, oppressed people of Gaza know that we Muslims of Iran and all over the world haven't forgotten you and will not cease until complete breaking of the surrounding of your city. In the path along freedom of Gaza and our common value which is the freedom of Palestine, we will not cease and will go on.

Muslim Bloggers Association [Fa] also published [7] a statement on the Gaza crisis:

این روز ها که در سایه سکوت مجامع جهانی و مدعیان حقوق بشر، غزه به عیان ترین مصداق نقض حقوق اولیه انسانی تبدیل گشته است… اخبار کشته شدن مردمانش بوسیله دشمن صهیونیستی به خبر عادی تلکس های خبری مبدل گردیده

In these days under the silence of international organizations and the ones that pretend that they are human rights defenders, Gaza has become the most clear example of human rights violation…the news of murder of Gaza's people by Zionist enemy has become an ordinary news.

Yadshthyeh Tanhayi [Fa] (which means Lonely Notes) writes [8]:

اینبار هم مینویسم برای تو و کودکان داغدارت برای تو و مردان و زنان رنج دیده ات کمی صبور باش ، آری صبور باش غزه به خدا سوگند آفتاب مهر و عدالت طلوع خواهد کرد. دلم می سوزد برای تو و مردمانت برای مظلومیت بیت المقدست

Again this time I write for you, your mournful children, your men and women who suffered. Please be paitinet a little more. I swear on God that the sun of justice and kindness will rise. My heart is burning for you and your oppressed people because of your oppressed Jerusalem.
