Today is Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement.
To mark the occassion, the United Nations has invited Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to address the General Assembly. He could have spoken on any of several days this week, but the U.N. chose Yom Kippur.
Ahmadinejad, for readers emerging from a 10-year coma, is the President of pre-nuclear Iran and the world's preeminent anti-semite. He is a Holocaust-denier who has pledged the extermination of Israel.
You don't need one of those fancy U.N. interpreters to understand the message the U.N. is sending to Jews on this solemn day.
