Holocaust Denier Ahmadinejad arrived into the United States for the opening of the U.N. General Assembly. Subsequent to his activities at the U.N. Ahmadinejad will be making an address at Columbia University.
John Coatsworth, Dean of the School of International & Public Affairs has said, "...If Hitler were in the United States and wanted a platform from which to speak, he would have plenty of platforms to speak in the United States...if he were willing to engage in debate and a discussion to be challenged by Columbia students and faculty, we would certainly invite him."
Columbia has a long history of providing a forum to Fascists, it once welcomed Nazi Germany's U.S. Ambassador Hans Luther to speak at the university in December 1933 triggering a student revolt.
