Oprah, Ask Tough Questions, Again and Again. Or Get a New Guest.
RegimeChangeIran reports that Iranian Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi will appear on Oprah.
I understand booking Nobel laureates, but in a recent interview broadcast in Los Angeles Ebadi, through a translator, demurred on all difficult questions, and her colleagues explained that the regime in Iran monitored her every utterance.
I understand her caution and her fear. But if a Nobel laureate is unable to condemn Holocaust denial and the threats of her country’s president against the existence of Israel, she ought not to be given air time in which those questions are avoided.
Imagine a German dignitary touring the United States in 1937 and not being asked about Hitler’s actions and statements.
