An Iranian University Invites Bush to Speak
After the controversial appearance of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia University last week, an Iranian university yesterday invited President Bush to travel to Iran and speak on campus about a range of issues, including the Holocaust, terrorism, human rights and U.S. foreign policy, the Fars News Agency reported yesterday. (10/2, Washington Post).
Obviously, Ferdowsi University of Iran has never heard Bush speak. Or maybe they have, and this is their way of getting a first strike at the U.S.
Who wins the speech wars? Ahmadinejad or Bush? Their President or ours?
We’ll provide; you decide!
Here is what Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:
• The Holocaust is a myth.
• The Jews as the sworn enemies of Islam. The hostility dates back to the time of Muhammad’s own treatment of the Jews in Medina.
• He wants Israel to be wiped out of the map or transferred to Europe.
• In his speech at the UN general assembly, he claimed that during his speech of some twenty odd minutes, a powerful light enveloped him and all participants were held transfixed unable to move their eyes.
• He believes that the earth is Allah’s and all people must either become believers of his brand of Islam or must perish as infidels najis (unclean) who by their very presence defile Allah’s earth.
Here is what our President George W. Bush says:
'Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.'
'I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family.'
'They misunderestimated me.'
'Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?'
"The only way we can win is to leave before the job is done." –
"This morning my administration released the budget numbers for fiscal 2006. These budget numbers are not just estimates; these are the actual results for the fiscal year that ended February the 30th."
"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror.
"I said I was looking for a book to read, Laura said you ought to try Camus. I also read three Shakespeares. ... I've got a eck-a-lec-tic reading list."
So, there you go readers! YOU decide: Who has the upper hand?
The President who is a moron? Or the President who is completely out of his mind?
