Just shove your wreath, Ahmadinejad

Just shove the wreath you want to place at Ground Zero, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Those are my words and so are these: if you try to set one foot on where the terrorists your regime supported murdered a member of my family and 3,000 others, I will be there standing in your way.

“Just shove your wreath” is also a part of a headline in this morning New York Post:

That was the response when the Iranian Mission to the United Nations asked city, state and federal officials if Holocaust — denying Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could lay a wreath at Ground Zero during his visit next week. At a Sept. 6 meeting with the NYPD, Secret Service and Port Authority — five days before this year’s emotional 9/11 ceremony — the Iranian Mission was told no one is allowed in the pit because it’s a live construction site and dangerous.

As for Ahmadinejad, who is arriving Sunday to address the U.N. General Assembly, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, says his country is giving “lethal” support to Iraqi militias. Speaking yesterday in London, Petraeus said evidence shows the Axis of Evil member, which sponsors Hezbollah, listed by the State Department as a terrorist group, is training militias and giving them weapons – including rockets and especially deadly improvised explosive devices that have killed many American troops.

According to recent reports, EFPs – explosively formed penetrators – accounted for 18 percent of U.S. and allied troops’ combat deaths in Iraq in the last quarter of 2006. And intelligence reports point to Iran’s role in providing them.

But for a few hours yesterday, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly had City Hall and civic and religious leaders reeling with his remarks that talks were under way on a possible Ahmadinejad visit.

“They have expressed an interest in having the president do that [visit Ground Zero],” Kelly said at a news conference. “We are engaging in conversation with them right now as to that possibility. . . It is something we are prepared to handle if, in fact, it does happen.”

In a terse clarification hours later, Kelly spokesman Paul Browne set the record straight.

“A request earlier this month to permit a visit by Iranian President Ahmadinejad to Ground Zero during the United Nations General Assembly was rejected in a meeting which included NYPD, Secret Service and Port Authority officials,” his statement said.

Yet WABC is reporting Ahmadinejad is planning to visit Ground Zero at 10 a.m. Monday:

Iranian mission says he’ll go despite NYPD rejection

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad requested to visit Ground Zero during an upcoming trip to New York. That request was rejected Wednesday. But a source tells Eyewitness News that the decision may not stop him. A law enforcement source says the Iranian mission to the United Nations has informed the Secret Service that the Iranian president intends to visit Ground Zero Monday at 10 a.m. The source says regardless of the NYPD’s rejection of the request for a Ground Zero tour, Iran’s president and his entourage will be accompanied by a Secret Service protective detail, a detail provided to all heads of state when they visit the United States.

Ahmadinejad’s regime supports terrorists, as our own State Department has said. The 9/11 Commission reported Iran facilitated the travel of many of the 9/11 hijackers:

Intelligence indicates the persistence of contacts between Iranian security officials and senior al Qaeda figures after Bin Ladin’s return to Afghanistan. Khallad [Sheik Mohammed] has said that Iran made a concerted effort to strengthen relations with al Qaeda after the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole, but was rebuffed because Bin Ladin did not want to alienate his supporters in Saudi Arabia. Khallad and other detainees have described the willingness of Iranian officials to facilitate the travel of al Qaeda members through Iran, on their way to and from Afghanistan. For example, Iranian border inspectors would be told not to place telltale stamps in the passports of these travelers. Such arrangements were particularly beneficial to Saudi members of al Qaeda.

Our knowledge of the international travels of the al Qaeda operatives selected for the 9/11 operation remains fragmentary. But we now have evidence suggesting that 8 to 10 of the 14 Saudi “muscle” operatives traveled into or out of Iran between October 2000 and February 2001.

Debra Burlingame told Mark Levin that she doubts they will let him anywhere near the place on his syndicated radio broadcast last night:

If he comes to Ground Zero Monday, I will stand in his way. Will you join me? Michelle Malkin says she will.

No, I do not want to get arrested and would not resist arrest for blocking his path but I will not stand by idly while Mahmoud Ahmadinejad walks on our sacred ground.

    In an even more bizarre turn of events, the 9/11 truthers are hoping his visit will publicize and lend credibility to their crusade.

    Simply pathetic and disrespectful. I know its America and we have the right to be complete morons but come on, does the left have any dignity whatsoever? Apparently not.

    What a heap of loud mouthed idiotic American bullshit. No wonder the rest of the world thinks you’re a nation of shit-for-brains mouthbreathers. We call you Israel’s bitches here.

    Hi,

    Just some FYI:

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Friday

    Freedom’s Watch President Bradley A. Blakeman released a statement and a copy of the print advertisement it has requested to be run in the Monday edition of the New York Times.

    “Freedom’s Watch could not sit back and allow a terrorist to come to
    America masquerading as a world leader. We have an obligation to warn the
    world of the dangers of a nuclear Iran and to uncover the true intent, that
    being, the destruction of the United States and the State of Israel.

    Let’s be clear, Iran today kills American soldiers in Iraq and they will not stop
    there,” said Bradley A. Blakeman, President of Freedom’s Watch.

    The text of the advertisement follows:

    Ahmadinejad Is A Terrorist

    Columbia University is wrong to give him a platform.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens our nation and the
    freedoms we value. He has supported attacks on our soldiers and our allies.
    He should be treated as the terrorist that he is.

    Yet, while Columbia gives a terrorist like Ahmadinejad a platform to
    speak, they refuse to allow the ROTC on campus.

    What has happened to this prestigious university?

    People who support killing Americans are welcome. But the military that
    defends them is not.

    Columbia should be ashamed of its actions.

    Freedom’s Watch knows that America and the forces of freedom are right.
    We know the threat of terrorism is real. And we know Democracy must
    prevail.

    The terrorists and their appeasers are wrong.

    “And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon
    experience a world without the United States and Zionism.”
    — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

    I’d like to suggest that everyone that shows up to block his access to Ground Zero be ready to take their shoe off and shake it at him with the sole facing him.

    I know that’s quite an insult in at least some of the Middle Eastern countries. Maybe have a large poster of him, and slap that image with shoes.

    Just a thought.

    Y’all are aware that Ahmadinejad had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11, right? There are plenty of reasons to be diplomatically wary of a saber-rattling antisemite, but don’t give the devil more than his due.

    Editor — Nothing? Really? Aaron, please add to you reading list the 9/11 Commission Report. Here is an excerpt:

    Ahmadinejad’s regime supports terrorists, as our own State Department has said. The 9/11 Commission reported Iran facilitated the travel of many of the 9/11 hijackers:

    Intelligence indicates the persistence of contacts between Iranian security officials and senior al Qaeda figures after Bin Ladin’s return to Afghanistan. Khallad [Sheik Mohammed] has said that Iran made a concerted effort to strengthen relations with al Qaeda after the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole, but was rebuffed because Bin Ladin did not want to alienate his supporters in Saudi Arabia. Khallad and other detainees have described the willingness of Iranian officials to facilitate the travel of al Qaeda members through Iran, on their way to and from Afghanistan. For example, Iranian border inspectors would be told not to place telltale stamps in the passports of these travelers. Such arrangements were particularly beneficial to Saudi members of al Qaeda.

    That is a lot more than “nothing.” Iran has facilitated terrorism for the past 28 years and directly aided “8 to 10″ 9/11 hijackers while they were preparing to conduct those attacks.

    BTW, many of those who had A GREAT DEAL to do with 9/11 are being harbored by Iran under the lie that they are under house arrest.

    It’s times like these when I hate being broke. I already checked, a flight from Phoenix to NYC is way out of my budget. Rest assured, though, I’ll be sitting in my office, bouncing off the walls, wishing I could be there.

    I cannot believe we are actually having to discuss this… We are from MA and will take the train down to NYC if necessary. My husband is a firefighter and I cannot get my brain around that man even setting foot down there. He is aiding in the deaths or our soldiers! What the hell is wrong with us?

    SGT Sumner,
    I posted this on my blog:

    This Iranian shitbag will be making a very nasty, sordid appearance at the U.N. next week, so he decided to add a visit to ‘ground zero’ to his itinerary? It’s bad enough that The State Department allows despots to gain entrance into this country and use the U.N. as an anti-American soap box. Now, some brain dead obliviot considered allowing one of the world’s leading terrorist scumbags to cast his eyes upon the handiwork of the al Qaeda he supports.

    I want to know who made the decision to let him in here in the first fucking place. The decent thing to do would be to tell him not only “no”, but “hell no”.

    We need to take full control of who gets to come into or visit the United States. Allowing asshats like Hugo Chavez to stand up in front of an international audience and spew anti-American rants was sickening.

    For over 50 years during the Cold War, the United Nations served as nothing more than a Communist forum for the world’s Bolshevist misfits. Since the Wall came tumbling down, they’ve switched to whatever lunatic fringe happens to screech loudest, pro-al Qadea included. As long as they fit the requisite ‘oppressed people against global capitalism and the West, blah, blah, blah’, there will always be an outlet for their destructive idiocy.

    As a former Soldier and Iraq War veteran, I cannot believe that this country would tolerate a visit from an asswipe who sponsors the terrorism that took 3000 lives on this soil. In case you’ve forgotten, look at your skyline New York. Anything missing? I don’t even like the Japs visiting Pearl Harbor; it’s the perpetrator returning to the scene of the crime.

    There are many people here and around the world who have repressed the slaughter of Americans far back into selective memories, or worse, dismiss it as if it doesn’t matter. I would gladly trade “Truther” conspiracy morons, Hollywood halfwits like Rosie O’Donnell, or anyone who doesn’t believe we should fight Islamofascist nation-states tooth and nail, for the innocent people who perished on 11 September 2001.

    If you use any picket signs, many of them should be in Mahmoud’s language so he can read what you are thinking. He will see what democracy is like. Best of luck.

    Here’s two ideas:
    1) Come down heavy on the Senators, Congressmen and the President: Just because someone from a foreign country gets to address the UN (and Columbia — same thing) does not allow him free access to the City of New York or its environs. Inform Mr. A and his drivers and handlers that he is restricted in his travels to his hotel, the UN, and Columbia. (The latter is a stretch.)

    2) CLOSE OFF Ground Zero for x number of blocks while Mr. A, The Assassin Authorizer, is loose in NYC.

    This is unbelievably outrageous. And how many weapons inspectors does he allow to cruise around wherever they want in Iran?

    Why do they have an American scholar JAILED in Iran? Where is the American businessman who disappeared in Iran?

    And ship all his handlers and staff with diplomatic passports home if he steps across any lines we set up.
