#1 NYC Paper Mocks Ahmadinejad by Sending Him Jewish-Themed Welcome Basket09-24-2012, 11:14 AM
If you appreciate gag gifts, you’ll really love this story.
The New York Post, which isn’t afraid to be irreverent or antagonistic and is known for its provocative headlines, pulled off one of the most memorable stunts of the year when it recently sent a Jewish-themed welcome basket to Iranian President Ahmadinejad upon his arrival into New York for the U.N. General Assembly meeting.
The paper didn’t hold back, filling the basket with tickets to a theater show about Jews, bagels forma popular Jewish deli, and a brochure for a Holocaust museum. Here’s a taste:
The anti-Semite’s special welcome basket — from New Yorkers with love — included such locally procured goodies as Gold’s Borscht, Manischewitz Gefilte Fish and smoked whitefish from the world-famous Murray’s Sturgeon House on the Upper West Side.
If Ahmadinejad (pronounced: I’m a dinner jacket) needed midnight munchies during his visit to this infidel city, there were also plenty of H&H bagels, onion bialys and Zabar’s cream cheese.
To cheer up the sourpuss hatemonger, there’s a $125 comped ticket to the off-Broadway play “Old Jews Telling Jokes” — booked in his name. It just might take the edge off his bloodthirsty desire to develop nuclear weapons and wipe Israel off the map.
Anticipating the schlumpy, unshaven dictator’s penchant for wearing the same suit all week long, we thoughtfully included “I ♥ NY” undies and a stick of Irish Spring deodorant, to keep the flies away.
For those quiet moments away from spinning centrifuges, he can relax with a good book. But since it’s likely he can’t read the truth about 9/11, which he condemns as “a big lie,” there’s a picture book, “The 9/11 Report,” a graphic adaptation by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon.
The gesture, however, wasn’t well-received. Not only did a member of Ahmadinejad‘s entourage say the Post was endangering that person’s life, but the Secret Service nixed the idea: “This isn’t gonna happen. You have to go.”
You can see the basket here.

Although I will never eat borscht because I loathe beets, turning down the rest of that food is a sin. NYC bagels? Smoked whitefish? Zabar's cream cheese? I would never turn it down, that's some of the best food on earth.

So he comes safely to the US, knowing he will be safe here.
This is why we are vulnerable. These people think we are pussies for keeping them safe while they are here. They think Americans have no spine, because there are not mobs destroying things because the President of Iran is in da house. They are like ghetto dwellers- they do not admire civility, they think it is stupid and a sign of weakness.

We should move the UN to Jerusalem. Or would Tel Aviv piss them off more. Hmm.Be Not Afraid.

I'm sorry, but that right there is very funny. It's even funnier than Giuliani telling him he doesn't want him in his city.

Oh, he's here on UN business? What is it this time, voting member of the Human Rights Council, or head of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Peace Commission?

That's actually a good idea, although it would probably be a sign of end times for some, if the UN was moved to Jerusalem (not so much Tel Aviv, since it was called Joppa in biblical times, and doesn't play a prominent role in prophecy).
The symbolism is awesome-doesn't Jerusalem mean "city of peace"?
