loony press release of the day: Ahmadinejad to visit Ground Zero & he must be stopped!


“What a mockery! A public, bold sponsor of terror should never be
allowed permission to visit this sacred site.” Says Syndicated columnist, Terrorism expert, and Middle East analyst
Micah Halpern

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, has reportedly asked for
permission to visit Ground Zero during his visit to New York City
(September 25-29) when he is here speak at the U.N. General Assembly
(Sept. 25). This story appeared last night (22:35pm) on the Website
of Haaretz, the prestigious Israeli newspaper.

But Micah Halpern, syndicated columnist, Terrorism expert, Middle
East analyst, and author of the new book, Thugs: How History’s Most
Notorious Despots Transformed The World through Terror, Tyranny, and
Mass Murder, says that Ahmadinejad must never be allowed to visit the
sacred site.

“Since the Islamic revolution, Iran has sponsored more terror than
any other country in the world. And here is the president of the
world’s biggest terrorism-sponsoring country requesting a visit to
Ground Zero, the ultimate symbol of terrorism? What a mockery!”

Adds Halpern, “The PR people who advise Ahmadinejad are brilliant to
come up with this idea. But a sponsor of terror - a public, bold sponsor of terror - should
never be allowed permission to visit this sacred site!”

Not only does Halpern reject the visit to Ground Zero, but also
Ahmadinejad’s entire trip to the USA to speak at the U.N. General
Assembly on September 25, with other “thug” leaders from around the
world including Hugo Chavez.

“Some of the most evil world leaders alive today will be arriving in
New York in the next two weeks. Why are these despots even allowed
entry into the United States? By allowing these thugs to be a part of
a public, international, renowned forum, we are legitimizing their
actions and deeds. The USA should never have given them entry Visas”

The UN General Assembly has maintained a prominent forum for pressing
issues on the international political agenda for the past six
decades, bringing together world leaders for discussion and debates
that greatly shape global policies. Meetings have taken place at the
United Nations headquarters in New York, though as Halpern points
out, at one time the UN moved the General Assembly meetings to Europe
in a gesture of solidarity when Yasser Arafat was denied entry into
the US.

Adds Halpern: “The US and the UN have a problematic relationship. One
of the very tense aspects of that relationship is that all world
leaders are supposed to be permitted entry to the US in order to
address the United Nations. The UN believes that all voices including
evil voices need be represented. They think that by casting the
widest net, more good can evolve, that negotiations and improvements
can occur. But the US has never accepted that principle. As a freedom- loving country, by attending and allowing despotic leaders into our
borders, we give credibility to these despots.”
