I’m only going to do this once

Lots has been put out there in the Jewish world (particularly the blogging community) about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to Columbia University.

Since I’m against reinventing the wheel while I’m already rolling, I figured I’d pass on some good links. But here is my general take on the whole situation. Yes he’s an anti-Semite who hates Israel and doesn’t accept the Holocaust as we all know it happened. But I like my crazy, nuclear-developing pseudo-dictators where I can see them. Right out in the open, standing at an American university arguing, or at least trying to argue, his views in a civilized setting. Not hiding in a cave somewhere plotting his next attack.

Here’s my best of the bunch.
