SCROLL FOR UPDATES!
New York City, moving swiftly in the face of outrage from the White House to the political hustings to the Jewish community, is rejecting a request by President Ahmadinejad to lay a wreath at Ground Zero when the Iranian is in New York next week for a meeting of the United Nations.
After a spokesman for the National Security Council in the White House said that a decision on Mr. Ahmadinejad's visit was up to New York City, the police department put out a statement saying that the idea for a visit had been quickly dismissed earlier this month in a mid-level meeting among aides of the police department, the secret service, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Read it all in the NY SUN.
Iran's President Ahmadinejad is coming to the UN.
He funds and supports terror around the world.
He wants a world without the US and Israel..
He is developing nuclear weapons..
He denies the Holocaust.

I expect every Atlas reader that can be there, to be there. We need to make a statement.
Mr. Bollinger said that Mr. Ahmadinejad would speak at the World Leaders Forum, organized by Columbia School of International and Public Affairs, on Monday. Mr. Bollinger said in a statement:
Check it out. No Ballsinger makes a self important statement to Ahmadjiahdman. As if. Ahmadinejad wouldn't let no Ballinsinger wipe his boots. Another fine Columbia moment, right up there with the Edward Said chair. Ugh.

UPDATE: Ahmadinejad in New York - Editorial
If the bizarre request of President Ahmadinejad to lay a wreath at ground zero has been put to rest once and for all, New Yorkers can thank three persons - the police commissioner, Raymond Kelly; Israel's ambassador to the UN, Daniel Gillerman, and [Internet journalist] Matt Drudge. Our interpretation of the events is as follows: When, at a private dinner party at which Ambassador Gillerman was also present, Mr. Kelly was asked what he thought Mr. Ahmadinejad would want to do at ground zero, the commissioner growled that the Iranian wanted to "scout the next attack."
Meanwhile, Iran announced today that they have a plan to bomb Israel.
TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has drawn up plans to bomb Israel if the Jewish state should attack, the deputy air force commander said Wednesday, adding to tensions already heated up by an Israeli airstrike on Syria and calls from the West for more U.N. sanctions against Tehran. More here.
Stand with Israel or submit to Islam baby.
UPDATE: Malkin is calling for EVERYONE to get to the rally. Her rallying cry - "take your wreath and shove it." Yeah bababbaby. JOIN US!!!!!
UPDATE: RUDY ROCKS!
Meanwhile, The NYPD said no, but he's going to get a Secret Service escort.
PRESIDENT BUSH, SNAP OUT OF IT! The wreath is for the terrorists, not the victims. helllooooooooooooooooo.
If the poison dwarf intends to stain the sacred ground at GZ, I will be there sans burka.
UPDATE: The evil dwarf will not be going to Ground Zero or Columbia University.
Baddah bing. Baddah mamoud!
Update: No Ballsinger submits.again. The JCPA advises;
We have just received further clarification that the news reports about the cancellation of Ahmadinejad’s appearance at Columbia University were incorrect, and for now the university intends to go ahead with his appearance. A variety of on-campus events are being planned by campus groups that feel strongly that Ahmadinejad’s appearance should be restricted to members of the campus community. Police will not allow those without Columbia ID into the area.
This is becoming a habit.
