Two students at Columbia University have penned a very thoughtful Op-Ed on why Columbia should not have asked Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak at their school: http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=ZDM5ZmU0ZThlYTJhYmNhMDcxOGQ1ZmU5YTQ0ODRlMzA.
I urge you all to read it.
UPDATE (5:22 p.m.): If Lee Bollinger really wanted to know what this whack job is thinking, he should just check out this compendium of the man's "thoughts": http://www.realite-eu.org/site/apps/nl/content3.asp?c=9dJBLLNkGiF&b=2315291&ct=4058419.
Update (5:28 p.m.): It sure sounds like Mr. Ahmadinejad did NOT have very much fun during his visit to Columbia: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070924/ap_on_re_us/iran_us. His most fascinating statement, in my mind, was that Iran did not have any homosexuals. Of course it doesn't. They all get executed if they dare come out of the closet...........
