Iranian University Invites Bush to Speak

The Voice of America is reporting that an Iranian university has extended an invitation to President Bush to give a talk before students and faculty:

An Iranian university has invited U.S. President George W. Bush to speak about such issues as the Holocaust, terrorism and human rights. Iran's Fars news agency reports

Ferdowsi University in the northeastern city of Mashhad asked Mr. Bush to attend a question and answer session with students and professors.

The White House says it is not taking the invitation "too seriously."
Actually, the White House said the President would consider the invitation if:

1. Iran were a free and democratic country.

2. Allowed free and open expression.

3. Got rid of its nuclear program.

4. Gave up on wanting to destroy the state of Israel.

Not to put too fine a point on it but somehow, I doubt whether the Iranian mullacracy is anxious to fufill those requirements anytime soon which means that the President probably won't be jetting off to Iran anytime soon.
