“This isn’t gonna happen. You have to go,” staff at the New York Post were told by a Secret Service agent, when they tried to deliver a Jewish themed welcome basket to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at his believed midtown hotel lodgings.

The rejected package included a $125 ticket to off-Broadway play “Old Jews Telling Jokes” which was booked in his name, Gold’s Borscht, Manischewitz Gefilte Fish and a brochure for the Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. “The Holocaust denier might want to learn something about the subject,” writes the Post.

A card included in the basket carried greeting from New Yorkers, mostly in the form of sarcastic insults.

“Happy New Year 5773. Available for counseling if you need it,” wrote Alan Hifler, a psychologist, “We’d gladly burn your tongue with coffee,” a woman added.

    I can understand the Arabs behaving as they do but, while some illumination has been provided, the inexplicable part of current world affairs is Obama’s hatred of both America and freedom…..he seems intent, by any means possible, on destroying both…..while I am a non-violent man….(sorta, kinda)…..I am stunned that Obama hasn’t yet suffered the slings and arrows of November….the grassy knoll November…
