According to a statemnet by Columbia University President Lee Bollinger Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is coming to a school near you.
Bollinger intends to prod his guest with some sharp questions involving:
·the Iranian President’s denial of the Holocaust;
·his public call for the destruction of the state of Israel;
·his reported support for international terrorism that targets innocent civilians and American troops;
·Iran's pursuit of nuclear ambitions in opposition to international sanction;
·his government's widely documented suppression of civil society and particularly of women's rights; and
·his government's imprisoning of journalists and scholars, including one of Columbia’s own alumni,
Dr. Kian Tajbakhsh.
Don't bet on Columbia to win any debates spun off from its president's prods.
