The dean of a northeastern Iranian university has invited US President George W. Bush to address professors and students and answer their questions on human rights, terrorism and the Holocaust, state television reported Monday. The invitation from Ferdowsi University came a week after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's controversial visit to New York, where he faced tough questioning and received a combative introduction from Columbia University's president at the campus forum. "The dean of Ferdowsi University has invited the US president to address professors and students and answer their questions about human rights, terrorism and the Holocaust," the television reported. The broadcast did not give further details including saying how or when the invitation was issued by the prestigious Iranian university in Mashhad.
