Both Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mommar Gadhafi are in town this week talking crazy at the U.N. Each expected a king’s welcome in the United States, booking out some of the most prestigious properties Manhattan has to offer. Ahmadinejad wanted banquet space at both the Jumeirah Essex House and the New York Helmsley Hotel. Gadhafi had even grander plans, hoping to pitch his Bedouin tent in Central Park, (he eventally settling on a piece of land leased to him by none other than hotelier/tycoon Donald Trump). Both leaders have gotten the cold shoulder during their visit. Turns out there are groups in New York exerting some serious pull who have convinced the hotels to disassociate from these unsavory characters. Impressive to be sure, but at the same time doesn’t it just make us look inhospitable? I thought that we were supposed to be all about, ‘creating a dialogue’ with these leaders. That’s never going to happen if we treat people this way. I mean, you still invite your crazy uncle to Thanksgiving dinner right? Should we or shouldn’t we make an exception for rogue leaders? What do you think?
