Ahmadinejad at Columbia


Are you in New York? Go up to Columbia to see the madness as Ahmadinejad is giving a speech there today. Here’s an AP report of his arrival by Nahal Toosi. A friend at Columbia’s graduate school let me know they are covering the event really comprehensively today. If there are any Iranians in New York reading this who want to speak to her, please email me at editorATparsarts.com and I’ll put you in touch.

The Columbia Spectator’s site has a special web feature including an “Ahmadineblog” and will have a ton of live coverage.

Update: The event is over and here’s another live-blog that covered the speech and subsequent questions. Also see Nahal Toosi’s AP article on the Houston Chronicle about the content of the speech.

I heard tickets for the event were sold out within a few hours I dont’ think it’s possible to get close to where he’s giving the speech.

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.

I listened to his speech he did a pretty good job, the dean looked pretty ridiculous with his speech. I don’t think he expected Ahmadeinejab to respond to him, I wonder if he will actually go to Iran and speak there.
