A fragment of the Holocaust, the most documented atrocity in the world
Although there are many varied opinions concerning President Bollinger of Columbia University flying about and keeping the media wires hot, he is my new hero with his blistering introduction of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his appearance at Columbia University yesterday. In fact, Bollinger’s introduction was downright harsh.
And I also love the fact that Ahmadinejad was forced to say that the Holocaust happened. This was his answer when pressed on the subject of the most documented atrocity in history: “Granted this happened. What does it have to do with the Palestinian people?”
Of course Ahmadinejad’s answer was very weak and diversionary. But he said it, “Granted this happened… ” I hope these words haunt him and follow him forever.
Even if you disagree with Bollinger’s remarks or that Ahmadinejad was allowed to speak at all, you must admit that Bollinger’s vitrolic words, piercing the air one by one somehow felt good as they stung in the ears of Ahmadinejad–at least to me. Bollinger said things that I have wanted to say to him and/or others like him for a long time.
I enjoyed the vicarious vitriol.
If you happen to be one of the few around that haven’t read the article or seen the msnbc.com video attached, see if you don’t enjoy the vitriol for a brief moment as well.
