article imageOp-Ed: Why Let Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the U.S at All?

By Joe Vannicola     Sep 21, 2007 in Politics
New Yorkers as well as others in this country were justifiably appalled when Mamoud Ahmadinejad, hater of The United States and friend to AL-Queda terrorists, asked city, state and federal officials if he could lay a wreath at Ground Zero during his visit
According to the New York Post, Mayor Bloomberg denied Ahmadinejad permission on the grounds that Ground Zero is under construction. Which is the same explanation New York's Mayor gave to the 9/11 families to prevent them from going to the site during last weeks anniversary ceremony.
The reason for Mayor Bloomberg's tactful diplomacy toward this evil, tyrant is bewildering to say the least. Perhaps his statement to Ahmadinejad was true. But still, this is one man who should not have been treated with political kid gloves from the get go. In fact, he should not even be allowed in the United States, much less welcomed at the UN.
As for the reason why, Ahmadinejad's record speaks for itself:
1. He has sent both agents and weapons to kill Americans in Iraq.
2. He has thumbed his nose at international rules and has vigorously pursued nuclear weapons for use on Iran's enemies.
3. He has threatened to wipe Israel off the map.
4. He has denied that there ever was a Holocaust.
And these are just a few of the many atrocities Ahmadinejad has committed as President of Iran and yet, he isn't banned from entering our country. He claims to be visiting Ground Zero to pay his respects to the victims, but myself and millions of other Americans think that's fish three days old; we don't buy it.
This monstrous dictator should have been told in no uncertain terms by Mayor Bloomberg to take his wreath and put it where the sun don't shine. Because Ahmadinejad does not deserve to be treated with any sort of tact or diplomacy. After all, this is the same man who last year gave a blistering rant at the UN blaming the United States for all the world's ills.
Instead, Almadinejad should be greeted at the airport by agents from The FBI and be told in no uncertain terms that he is persona non grata in The United States and to go back to his beloved Iran immediately. Besides, except for his bosom buddies at the UN, there are precious few people here who would roll out the welcome mat for him anyway.
