The website is now reportedly accessible in Iran without the usual antifiltering tools that many use to access banned websites.
“These days, the website of Hashemi Rafsanjani has put a lot of effort into creating divisions between the principalists and creating doubt about the health of the [March parliamentary elections]. It’s been to such a degree that if -- after the filtering of America’s virtual embassy for Iran and the filtering of the British embassy in Tehran -- officials in charge would move to block [Rafsanjani’s website], it wouldn’t be unfair," according to the hard-line “Bibak” website.
UPDATE: Shortly after we posted the blog post, Rafsanjani's website became inaccessible. The website now seems to be completely down.
