I am very optimistic about Irans President Ahmadinejad visiting America, speaking at Columbia and hopefully laying a wreath at the memorial site of the September 11, 2001 WTC.

Remember How Iran Responded to the 9/11 Attacks? "My deep sympathy goes out to the American nation, particularly those who have suffered from the attacks and also the families of the victims," he said"

He is making a wonderful diplomatic step forward. Even though the attitude of some is cold, prejudiced and racist. President Ahmadinejad is a very courageous leader for making the trip.

Once he has the chance to have a dialogue with people who welcome him with open arms, hopefully we U.S. and Iran can create a bigger embrace of friendship.

Congratulations to the leaders of Iran for supporting this trip and for helping the seeds of Peace to grow and blossom, among all of us who wish for it.

Thank you to the people of Iran for not judging all of us the same. There are many of us, who like you, want peace to thrive.

Our 'best world' will come about by means of diplomatic integrity. I may not agree with some of the thoughts that the Iranian President has and I am pretty sure the people in Iran do not agree with some of the beliefs of our president. Peace through peaceful intentions leads to peace. There is no other way to say it.

Fortunately there are many leaders in the world today who do want peace through peaceful intentions. There are many who believe in democracy and freedom of speech.

There are many who believe that our land has always been a wonderful place to talk, think and do....whether agreed upon or not, agree to disagree. Our land has a great history of ideas that include everyone.

Our land has overcome great adversity at every turn. The President of Iran coming to our land is a promising signal that our great American democracy is still alive.

The President of Iran visiting the memorial site would be an even greater signal to the world that one human being cares for another.

And in this case, one human being who happens to be a powerful leader wishes to humble himself at the feet of the site of those that lost their lives.

That speaks volumes about what makes an average leader better through time, thought and deed. I give the President of Iran credit for trying.

the NYC Independent Media Center The point was – and remains – to show that contrary to whatever the Islamaphobic hate-mongers might say today, the vast majority of the Islamic world, even including states that the US has had difficult relations with, were sympathetic and supportive in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Columbia University President Lee Bollinger has resisted requests to cancel the event but promised to introduce the talk himself with a series of tough questions on topics including Ahmadinejad's views on the Holocaust, his call for the destruction of the state of Israel and his government's alleged support of terrorism.
"This trip gives the president a good chance to meet world leaders and inform them of Iran's rightful position," IRNA quoted Boroujerdi as saying.
