According to the Tehran Times a group of Columbia professors is going to Tehran to apologize to Ahmadinejad for President Lee Bollinger's comments to him when the Iranian president visited that campus in fall 2007.
[Note: This report has not been officially confirmed and, if it does go, it will not be an official Columbia delegation.]
Maybe, while they are there, they might ask about the young boys who were hung for homosexual activities [maybe that's why Ahmadinejad said there are no homosexuals in Iran they have all been hung...].
They might ask about those professors who have been punished and imprisoned by the government for speaking their mind.
They might also ask about the people who had a hand and a foot amputated because they were convicted of stealing
They might also ask about the woman who was stoned for killing her husband. The woman, age 23, was married at age 15 to a man who apparently abused her.
They might ask about the Amnesty International report that, by mid-October 2007, 250 people have been executed in Iran so far this year – 21 of them on the morning of September 5th alone. This includes children. Iran has been described by human rights organizations as the last executioner of children.
They might ask about the 30 people hung during July and August as part of a suppression of efforts to spread democracy. [One of the reasons we know about the hangings is that they were done publicly. Even Texas doesn't do that.]
They might ask why Dr. Esfandiari, who was held in solitary confinement for 105 days, was arrested in the first place.
My guess is that they won't ask any of these things because they will be too busy groveling and they are more worried about Ahmadinejad's freedom of speech than that of the people who have been persecuted by this regime.
[Maybe Gandhi's grandson will say something about this....except that he's too busy condemning Israel and all Jews for their culture of violence.]
