Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Israel: "The Zionists are very much, very adventuresome, very much seeking to fabricate things"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, for a rare, and candid, face to face conversation.

As part of an interview that comes on the backdrop of this week's United Nations General Assembly meeting, Piers Morgan asks how Iran would respond upon facing an attack from nearby Israel:

"The response of Iran is quite clear, I don’t even need to explain that; any question in any nation has the right and will indeed defend herself," says Iran's 6th president.

Speaking through a translator, Ahmadinejad continues by raising a foreign policy question of his own: FULL POST

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: "Homosexuality ceases procreation...proper education must be given"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sits down with Piers Morgan for an exclusive hour-long interview that airs on the backdrop of this week's United Nations General Assembly meeting.

As part of a conversation that covers everything from politics to love, and Israel to Libya, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host also inquires about social issues, including homosexuality:

"Shouldn’t freedom and individuality and all those things also extend to people who just happen to be gay? Who were born gay. They weren’t made gay," says Morgan. "Wouldn’t it be great for the President of Iran to say you know something, everyone’s entitled to be whatever sexuality they are born to be? That would be a great symbol of freedom."

"Do you really believe that someone is born homosexual?" says Iran's 6th president, answering a question with one of his own. "I’m sorry. Let me ask you this. Do you believe that anyone is giving birth through homosexuality? Homosexuality ceases procreation. Who has said that if you like or believe in doing something ugly, and others do not accept your behavior, that they’re denying your freedom?"

"You are a father of three children," the host continues. "You have two sons and a daughter, what would you do if one of them was gay?"

Speaking through a translator, the 55-year-old former engineer and teacher shares his perspective: FULL POST

Nearly three decades since appearing alongside his contemporaries in those iconic movies, McCarthy has successfully segued into a career as an award-winning travel writer, boasting a new memoir entitled "The Long Way Home, One Man's Quest for the Courage to Settle Down."

During his conversation with Piers Morgan, McCarthy detailed what he believes is a reluctance by Americans to visit other parts of the world: FULL POST
