Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has described the Holocaust as "a myth" and suggested that Israel be moved to Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska.
Columbia President Bollinger [the University of Michigan's prior Prelate of Education] apparently believes that the students at Columbia need to have a broader education and has invited Ahmadinejad to speak to the students to provide... new perspectives???This is the same Lee Bollinger who said...
Professors, he said, have a responsibility "to resist the allure of certitude, the temptation to use the podium as an ideological platform, to indoctrinate a captive audience, to play favorites with the like-minded and silence the others."One must presume that President Bollinger will invite some Holocaust survivors to debate Ahmadinejad... or would that be using the podium for ideological purposes? Can it be that President Bollinger is so vehemently opposed to U.S. foreign policy that he is now grasping for anyone who represents the opposite of what our policy stands for.
Well, he certainly has his man.I wonder what that large population of Jews who attend Columbia think about this? And what could the alumni be thinking about now?
Maybe Bollinger is looking for a university president positions somewhat east of New York? Middle East of New York?..
