More Mahmoud, Part 2


The saga continues … Iran’s president, meeting last night with an inter-religious group that included a rabbi, was met with protests outside the Manhattan hotel where the encounter took place.

Earlier in the day, Ahmadinejad met with some media bigwigs for breakfast, as recounted by Ruth Marcus in the Washington Post. The Chicago Tribune has a slightly fuller account. The New York Times also has a lengthy interview with the Iranian leader.

And in case you missed the anti-Semitic rant he delivered Tuesday at the United Nations, Eye on the UN has produced this nice little highlight reel of the speech’s greatest hits, including an embrace by the General Assembly president, who is also a Catholic priest. Apparently, Israel’s new U.N. ambassador is none too happy.
