This is probably one of the best speeches I have heard so far from a University president.
Succinct and biting.
Unfortunately, his guest came out a dud. With remarks like:
“In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that in our country.”
Maybe he's right; maybe he has killed or imprisoned them all.
On a side note, do you know of Singapore's academic linkages with Persia?
