Iranian Ambassador Zarif to Address Columbia Middle East Seminar

Throughout the academic year, Columbia University holds a series of seminars, bringing together members of the university faculty and, as they put it, "experts and specialists in nonacademic pursuits," and "authorities in many fields of scholarship as speakers in guests" to focus on a variety of topics.

The Middle East Seminar taking place today (5/2) at Columbia promises a "carefully-defined and informed evaluation of stubborn problems in a region that symbolizes mounting instability and proliferating crises." So who did Columbia choose to invite as a speaker, out of all the notable possibilities, to address this pressing issue? None other than Iran's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Mohammad Javad Zarif.

One assumes he'll get some challenging questions, perhaps about the power struggle going on in Iran, Holcaust denial, etc.? Maybe the right would have preferred someone else, but you may as well make good use of the guy....

Mr. Zarif can be praised by those folks at Columbia University ad nauseum,but he spouts the Islamofascist party line nonetheless.These people (Iran et cetera) want their way period-not dialogue. Their violent actions prove my point.
