Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Holocaust denier and Islamo-fascist, will speak at Columbia University, though apparently he won’t be able to use Ground Zero as a photo-op backdrop. Last year, Columbia President Lee Bollinger withdrew an invitation to Ahmadinejad at Columbia’s World Leaders Forum, saying it might not â€œreflect the academic valuesâ€ of the event. That’s like saying Hitler might not reflect the values of a forum on “Tolerance Toward Judaism.”
The way Duke tries to ape the Ivy League, can an invitation from President Richard Brodhead to Ahmadinejad to address a conclave of the Group of 88 be far behind.
