I agree with your post. I would prefer if the Oxford Union didn't invite him, but as they have done, we must allow freedom of speech. However much we despise what he says he does have the right to say it. What he says and writes about is so pathetic and beyond stupidity it would be better to hear it from his own mouth so we can counter it. Ahmedinejad is not remembered at Columbia University for his hatred towards Israel, but his belief that there are no Homosexuals in Iran which makes him look pathetic and ridiculous. Allowing Ahmedinejad to speak has shown him to be an idiot. It was better for Israel that he did speak. It will be the same with Irving.
