Harvard Invites Khatami to Speak 9-10

Anyone seen this?

Harvard dean defends Khatami invitation - Yahoo! News

Comments?

I agree with the final lines:

Quote:
"We believe in freedom of speech, but I really question the judgment of Harvard giving him a platform."
I also believe in knowing your enemy, so I'd actually like to go hear him speak...but I don't know if Harvard chose well here.

I see not problem with it, just because you do not like what they might have to say does not mean what they have to say is not right or good. If we as all people would communicate more and understand other cultures and religions we would be much further ahead.

IMHO of course

I think you should take the "western" out and include all people.

"The West" is FAR more open and communicative than Iran.

Re: Harvard Invites Khatami to Speak 9-10

It doesn't say that he's agreed to speak with whatever restrictions they'd impose on him.

I disagree with those who would prohibit him from saying any damned thing he wants. He is such an arrogant, deluded bastard that he'd do nothing but hurt his "cause." He might do a lot to destroy whatever misguided support he has among those who are yet to be convinced that he represents a large and growing segment of islamist fundamentalists who are at war with us and our way of life. They implacably hate this society in which people are free to choose their leaders and their religion (or lack of same.)

I hope he reveals the degree to which they hate all of us.

I don't object to what he has to say I object to him being allowed in the country period. Call me picky but we should not let anyone in that screams death to america in public forums

Re: Harvard Invites Khatami to Speak 9-10

If the Bush administration says that their position represents religious fascism, it is discounted as rhetoric. If he says it, maybe a few people will wake up.


edit: Can Bush actually pronounce "fascism?" What if it's "'Nucular' Fascism?"

Re: Harvard Invites Khatami to Speak 9-10

Let him speak first though...I do want to hear what he says, and agree with CBRVFR he probably would hurt his anti-America cause more than help.
