Life imitates art: Ahmadinejad in New York


Last month I posted a brief review of Gary Buslik’s book, Akhmed and the Atomic Matzo Balls: A Novel of International Intrigue, Pork-Crazed Termites, and Motherhood. In it, the title character – who bears more than a passing resemblance to Ahmadinejad – loves to indulge in Jewish deli fare while on his junkets to the UN.

The NYPost must have hired Mr. Buslik, or perhaps they read his book:

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.

There’s also a bobblehead Statue of Liberty to keep on his night table, a teddy bear to cuddle with during those cold Persian nights and a 9/11 American-flag refrigerator magnet that he can stick on the minibar.

For the (dic)tator who has everything!

Pass the bialy! Piers Morgan: Ahmadinejad would have ‘no problem’ if one of his children dated a Jew.
