NY Post sends Ahmadinejad gift basket of Jewish delicacies

posted at 12:26 pm on September 25, 2012 by

The way to a maniacal Holocaust-denying despot’s heart is through his stomach. Observing this tidbit of ageless wisdom, the New York Post prepared a welcome basket of goodies—all kosher or kosher-style for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who arrived in New York on Sunday.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the basket was delivered to the entrance of the Warwick Hotel in midtown on Tuesday. Sadly, it was intercepted by the U.S. Secret Service. Protruding from the basket was a note stating the editorial staff’s hope that the mostly edible contents would “take the edge off his bloodthirsty desire to develop nuclear weapons and wipe Israel off the map.” The JPost writes:

The basket also contained US-made paraphernalia, including ‘I ♥ New York underwear’ and a stick of deodorant ‘to keep the flies away,’ the Post article stated. Ahmadinejad also was given tickets to Jewish off-Broadway shows, and an assortment of Jewish staple products, including Gold’s Borscht, Manischewitz Gefilte Fish, H&H bagels, onion bialys and Zabar’s cream cheese.

The petty tyrant still received a welcome from crowds outside the hotel who chanted “Keep Ahmadinejad out of New York!” Others held anti-Iranian-regime signs.

Undaunted, Mad A’jad, as the New York Post refers to him in a headline, made his way across town to the United Nations, where he was warned by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of “the potentially harmful consequences of inflammatory rhetoric.” Still undaunted, he remarked in a high-level meeting on Monday (video here):

Fundamentally, we do not take seriously the threats of the Zionists vis-à-vis an attack on Iran by them, even though we are … Iran. Iran at the end of the day is a great country and let me assure you: We do have all defensive means at our disposal.

As for the gift basket, other hotel guests may end up regretting that it didn’t make through security if Ahmadinejad’s New York stay is anything like his 2010 visit. Guests at the Hilton Manhattan East, where he stopped during that visit, were forced out of their rooms by what many described as a powerful cooking stench emanating from Ahmadinejad’s suite. The tyrant, who has an understandable fear of being poisoned, brings his personal cook along with him when he travels.

At least he won’t be bored during his trip, which coincides tomorrow with Judaism’s holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur. The New York Post was thoughtful enough to include a brochure for downtown New York’s Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

Should have given him hamantaschen. >:) If you don’t know, they are cookies that remind Jews of Haman who tried to exterminate them but who was instead hoisted on his own rope at Esther’s husband’s decree.

It’s a shame his vehicle wasn’t pelted continuously between hotel and UN and all the way back, with eggs, tomatoes, and rolled up balls of raw bacon – hurled from street corners, windows above, etc.

Fortunately, this sort of thing will be outlawed when Obama signs his Executive Order banning such insensitive acts of mockery.
