The appeasers go to Tehran....

I don't think Bollinger should have even invited Ahamdinejad; let alone insult him...but don't go over there to apologize!
An academic delegation of Columbia University professors and deans of faculties plans to visit Tehran to officially apologize to Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad.

The delegation plans to express regret for the insulting remarks Columbia University President Lee Bollinger directed at Ahmadinejad on September 24 in his introductory speech, the Mehr News Agency correspondent in New York reported.

Since the incident, the deans and professors from the faculties of history, anthropology, Middle Eastern studies, philosophy and Islamic studies have criticized Bollinger’s behavior toward Ahmadinejad.

A member of the delegation, who requested anonymity, said the main goal of the visit is to meet the Iranian president and officially apologize to him.

How much more prostrate can these Western academics become before a fascist like Ahmadinejad? I wonder if they'll ask him about the "non-existence" of Iranian homosexuals?
