Iran is a terrorist State, do not forget it!

The Iranian press have reacted angrily to the reception Mr Ahmadinejad received at an earlier speaking engagement at Columbia university, where he was described by the university president as a "petty and cruel dictator".

It's so interesting that so many of Iran's defenders seem to be of a liberal persuasion. What is it exactly in the repressive theocratic state of Iran that they find worth defending? Their censored press? Their imprisonment of political reformers? Their shameful treatment of women and homosexuals? Is standing in opposition to the US enough to cause them to ignore their principles? Sad to say, but I guess it is for some.
