All began in June 2019. I
received a Notice of Libel and Intended Action.
As a son of lawyer who longtime
dreamed to become a lawyer I am not impressed, less scared by these
kinds of procedures.

- I donít have any idea how this diary going to take shape. For now, I just try to put my thoughts in words.
- I learned not to expect fast results when I work on a collective cause, instead, to have always an eye at myself and see how I change, and mostly how I become a deeper person.
- I met a few lawyers before I retain Jordan Goldbatt as my legal counsel. I found lawyers are very expensive but hard workers. I asked him an early appointment I was shocked when I heard about 7:30 am. My two first questions when I met him were if he starts every day so early, and at what time he usually he goes to bed. I can not share his answers without having his written consent and an affidavit that what he said was true. These are things that I am learning from lawyers. It is unbelievable how cautious they are.

I wonder how the opponent handle three legal suits, involvement in three organizations and on top of that continue to work to make the living. With one lawsuit, the engagement in social life as an individual, an article a week in Shahre-ma publication, and a one-man small business at sixty-eight-year-old my cup is full.
I go to bed early to be able to wake-up in the middle of the night, to study the law, to go through past posts and comments, organize and prepare the requested documents for the lawyer. My partner keeps complaining, she helps me in the preparation of documents, translations and supporting me.
It is natural that my presence on social media is also altered, not only by lack of time, but also by the instructions of the lawyer and friends advising me to keep the head down.
If the purpose of a lawsuit is to silence someone, to add burden and to make life difficult for others, we should admit that this is not fair and ethical even if we have good reasons for revenge.I should admit and confess that there is a part of this procedure that I enjoy and that I will try to share and pass on to others. When I wasn't aware of their real goals, I helped my opponent to create a strong portfolio, which can be seen in their presentation in the statement of claim. It was a good investment when I see how, beyond their desire and will, I am involved in learning about the law regarding freedom of speech, public figures, journalism privileges, public vs. personal interest, SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) and so many other points. One cannot understand and integrate the value and the meaning of freedom unless one is involved entirely. I understand how some individuals are ready to sacrifice and dedicate their lives for a noble cause.
