Iranian President Imachickenhead canceled a visit here last year because of security reasons, logistics and outrage expressed by a Jewish group for his denial the Holocaust ever existed and his desire to wipe Israel of the face of the earth.

There will be a group protesting this appearance and outrage has been expressed by several elected officials and groups - but Columbia is choosing to ignore them....
City Council speaker Christine Quinn called Thursday for the university to rescind the invitation, saying "the idea of Ahmadinejad as an honored guest anywhere in our city is offensive to all New Yorkers."
