RALLY IN NEW YORK AGAINST AHMEDINEJAD
[This Monday, September 24]
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's will visit to the US this coming Monday, September 24. It is shocking to think that he will not only be addressing the United Nations in New York but he will also be speaking at Columbia University, spewing his hatred of America, Israel and Jews.
Since he will be allowed to make his voice heard, our voices must be louder.
