Jewish-Themed Gag Gift Delivery To Ahmadinejad: Close But No Cigar

Beware the Zionist Gift Basket of Doom.TM

The New York Post said it was rebuffed in its attempt to hand-deliver a basket with Jewish-themed gifts to the New York hotel room of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

A Post reporter and photographer attempted to deliver the goods on Saturday night to the Warwick Hotel in Manhattan, where Ahmadinejad had checked in on Sept. 19. The Iranian leader is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.

In response to seeing the gag gift, the Post claimed that an Iranian official at the hotel exclaimed, “You’re going to endanger my life!” at which point a U.S. Secret Service agent turned away the delivery.

Among the goodies included in the basket were Jewish food items such as Gold’s borscht, Manischewitz gefilte fish, Murray’s Sturgeon Shop whitefish and Zabar’s cream cheese. The basket also included a free ticket to the off-Broadway show “Old Jews Telling Jokes” and a brochure for the Museum of Jewish Heritage, which focuses heavily on the Holocaust. Ahmadinjad has publicly denied that the Holocaust took place.

What was he afraid of?

    What an ungracious man he is. Did he really believe that the food items were poisonous? May be he remembered the story of how a Jewish heroine poisoned mo with a mutton stew! LOL!

    We must remember that Ahmadinejad is nothing more than the court jester of the ayatollahs, who have the real power in that country. If he actually tries to usurp their power, they will dump him in a hurry.

    I love Zabar’s. I only hope it hasn’t changed a thing since the last time I was there, 20 years ago.
