“Take note of the tweets of the Dean HIMSELF. El-Mohandes is not exactly a disinterested observer of Jihad Linda. He even tries to equate the Israelis’ relationship to the Palestinians of “driving the Palestinians into the sea,” a narrative similar to equating Jews with Nazis, purposefully misappropriating the decades-old language of the Arabs towards the Jews. This is what passes for erudition in academia.
This fellow is intellectually dishonest — a faker.
You need to know who you are dealing with here — a man who conceives a “captive audience” for a shari’a advocate and then calls it freedom of speech when the context involves NO exchange of ideas of of opinions. Then he tells you he lectured at Hebrew U. So what — Edward Said “‘lectured’ at Columbia,” said Jeff Wiesenfeld, member of the Board of Trustees of the City University of New York. Jeff’s non-government board directorships include: Long Island Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America; Berkshire Hills-Emanuel Camps; Queens borough Community College Holocaust Resource Center; Vice President; Irish Studies Advisory Board of the City University of New York; Open University of Israel; National Yiddish Theatre (Chairman of the Board); Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, Salute to Israel Day Parade Committee, North Shore Hebrew Academy,
Great Neck Arts Center, Vice President of the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and U.S. Presidency of the Israel Independence Fund.
Person Who Invited Linda Sarsour To Give CUNY Commencement Speech Also An Israel Hater
By Israelly Cool, May 26, 2017:
You have probably already heard about the furore surrounding Israel hater and faux feminist Linda Sarsour being invited to give the commencement speech for the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy. Just yesterday, hundreds of people gathered on Manhattan’s 42nd street to protest it.
And it is outrageous that a hatemonger like Sarsour should be invited to give the commencement speech. The question is why was she, of all people, invited?
The official reason given by the person who invited her – Ayman El-Mohandes, Dean of the Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy – is here. He refers to her as “a leader who has been successful as a community organizer, recognized by national leaders, and who has emphasized women’s health issues in the New York area.”
And I’d think Sarsour, a darling of the liberal left, would be a popular choice among the majority of the student population.
But I posit there is more to it than just that. Dean Ayman El-Mohandes, who invited her, shares more in common with Sarsour than the Muslim faith.
A look at some of his past tweets shows that he, like Sarsour, is no fan of Israel – to say the least.
Clearly, El-Mohandes is not bothered by Sarsour’s hate-filled statements on Israel. The question now is will he allow Sarsour to express them in her upcoming speech – or even encourage her to do so?
