Everyone knows that Ahmadinejad would only be mocking the Americans murdered by his Muslim brethren, and that his mocking act of laying a wreath would really be to honor the dead Muslims who perpetrated the greatest act of war on American soil since the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Even worse is the fact that Ahmadinejad is coming to NY to address the UN General Assembly, and worst of all, is the fact that Lee Bollinger, the president of Columbia University, has invited Ahmadinejad to speak at Columbia. Both events are scheduled to take place on Monday, September 24, 2007.
Ironically, Lee Bollinger withdrew an invitation to Ahmadinejad in September 2006, after the dean of Columbia's school of international and public affairs, Lisa Anderson, had invited Ahmadinejad to speak at the World Leader's Forum, a year-long program that aims to unite "renowned intellectuals and cultural icons from many nations to examine global challenges and explore cultural perspectives." Bollinger said he canceled Ahmadinejad's invitation because he couldn't be certain it would "reflect the academic values that are the hallmark of a University event such as our World Leaders Forum."
Why Bollinger changed his mind a year later, can only be analyzed by his psychotherapist. To register your complaint, please call 212-854-9970, Lee Bollinger's phone number and please leave a message.
We mustn't forget Iran’s support of terrorism, including their enabling many of the 9/11 hijackers to pass through Iran while they were planning the 9/11 attacks. In addition, we mustn't forget about the investment, by proxy, of billions of dollars being made by American retirement funds into Iran and how that money is being used to kill our troops in Iraq.
As Jason Mattera, of Young America's Foundation says, since Ahmadinejad is so interested in America, he should study the Bill of Rights, especially Amendments 1 and 2. And may a bullet finds its way into Ahmadinejad's frontal lobe post haste.
In the meantime, Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, who is running for president, said in a statement:
Under no circumstances should the N.Y.P.D. or any other American authority assist President Ahmadinejad in visiting Ground Zero. This is a man who has made threats against America and Israel, is harboring Bin Laden’s son and other al Qaeda leaders, is shipping arms to Iraqi insurgents and is pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. Assisting Ahmadinejad in touring Ground Zero – hallowed ground for all Americans – is outrageous.
