Picture an American professor receiving an award from Adolf Hitler in 1938. Then picture this. Diana West has the details:
The little guy (above) is A-jad, Iranian thug-in-chief, and he's congratulating an American professor named Robert G. Morrison of Bowdoin College for having written Islam and Science: The Intellectual Career of Nizam al-Din al-Nisaburi, which, it seems, was chosen by Iran as a 2009 International Book of the Year in Islamic Studies.
Diana has much more. Read it all.
Morrison joins the illustrious Carl Ernst in receiving a prize from the Thug-In-Chief.
