Welcome to New York, Pres. Ahmadinejad

When he comes to New York City for the United Nations meeting, President Ahmadinejad is in for an example of American—style free speech. The New York Sun reports:

President Ahmadinejad will also be met with a large rally on September 20 outside the U.N. at noon organized by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, and the UJA—Federation of New York. The rally, in support of Israel, calls for implementation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, which calls for disarming Iran's proxy army Hezbollah. It also calls for supporting the war against state sponsors of terror, including Iran. The executive vice chairman of the Conference, Malcolm Hoenlein, told us yesterday that he's received requests from as far away as Texas, Arkansas, Ottawa, and New Hampshire to participate in the rally.

A replay of the conference call with Malcolm Hoenlein that discusses Iran and the importance of the rally can be found on the One Jerusalem Website. We owe the proprietors of that website a hearty thanks for including American Thinker on the call and for all the great work they do. The rally will occur at noon (though organizers are asking participants to show up at 11 AM) at the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at 47th Street and 2nd Avenue
