The letter by Klein correctly refers to Sarsour, the keynote speaker at the CUNY Grad School for Public Health graduation ceremony on June 1st, as "a bigot and divider." He said that she is an "extremist" who supports the "anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
"Sarsour claims to care about bigotry--except when it is directed against Jews," Klein told Cuomo. He also cited Sarsour's social media postings including a tweet that said "nothing is creepier than Zionism."
In a taqiyya-laden statement (lying for the advancement of Islam) CUNY School of Public Health Dean Ayman El-Mohandes (aka Al Lou Akbar) defended Sarsour's selection saying that she opposes all discrimination, including anti-Semitism.
Yeah, some of her 'best friends are Jewish.'
One of Sarsour's tweets (written on 3/8/11) about anti-Sharia speakers Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali said:
"Brigitte Gabriel= Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She's asking 4 an a$$ whippin.' I wish I could take their vaginas away--they don't deserve to be women."Sarsour has always had a pro-Sharia (Islamic law) view. On September 22, 2011 she tweeted:
"Sharia law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics."On May 12, 2015:
"If you are still paying interest than [sic] Sharia Law hasn't taken over America. #justsaying."Sarsour pushes the "Islamophobia" myth like the Democrats pushing abortion. She even claimed that "Muslim kids" are being "executed" in the United States and pushed leftist Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, to end legal and necessary surveillance in Muslim communities in there.
This vicious purveyor of hate gets praise and a platform from CUNY while true pro-freedom speakers get brutalized, shouted down if they're even allowed to speak (which is rare) and often just canceled from appearing by the leftist authorities on campus.
I believe Sarsour should have the right to speak, but to make her a keynote speaker is objectionable on many levels. I guess if you call yourself a liberal, university leaders will fawn all over you.
