Ahmadinejad At Columbia

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.

Muslims Against Sharia condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the decision of Columbia University to provide a speaking venue for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Apparently letting Akbar Rafsanjani speak at the National Cathedral was not the height of American Dhimmitude, because providing a venue for the world's foremost anti-Semite, whose proclaimed goal is the destruction of the USA and Israel, definitely takes the cake. What is surprising is that we don't hear any complaints from Columbia alumni who should be ashamed of their silence.

don't forget, before Mahmoud "Iwannajihad" left Iran, he made a speech in a street filled with protesters in front of a sign that said death to americans. Also, I am surprised academia didn't boo him off stage with his anti-gay comments, but applauded him when he said that in Iran it was customary not to ridicule speakers before the speech. Liberals scare me worse than terrorism.
