Hack On Ahmadinejad Website?

The website of Iran's President Mahmud Ahmadinejad appeared to have been hacked today.

The following message appeared here on the site:

Dear God, In 2009 you took my favorite singer - Michael Jackson, my favorite actress - Farrah Fawcett, my favorite actor - Patrick Swayze, my favorite voice - Neda.
Please, please, don't forget my favorite politician - Ahmadinejad and my favorite dictator - Khamenei
in the year 2010. Thank you.

Subsequently, at last look, a "maximum number of users" message was preventing access to the site.
