Alba BS: Ahmadinejad at Columbia (181* d) RE: BS: Ahmadinejad at Columbia 25 Sep 07

Sympathy for Ahmadinejad?.. I see none here but then that would depends on how one chooses to interpret some of the posts on this thread

Embarrassment at the behavior of an Academic President of a well respected Campus during his pseudo introduction to an 'invited' speaker?... some may be and some may not be. All down to each person's idea of decorum I suppose

Are some people Interested to hear what Ahmadinejad's answers are to the questions asked? ...Speaking strictly for myself, I believe it would be foolish not to want to know what this person had to say..
especially his rhetoric regarding the Holocaust and Israel

I thought that Bollinger would most definetly come out of this with some measure of respect for daring to go against the majority and inviting and allowing Ahmadinejad to speak at Columbia this time round. I say again, sadly, Bollinger came away looking like an ass. I do not however believe that Ahmadinejad came away with any sympathy. Academic respect perhaps for handling himself well under pressure ( like a President would when under verbal fire actually) but being seen as a sympathetic figure...hardly!

Today Bush speaks and then Ahmadinejad speaks at the UN.
I will be listening to both of their speeches.
