The city’s most notorious demagogues, bigots and Jew-haters came out to support pro-terror, BDS leader and proud antisemite Linda Sarsour. It was a small group but very influential in hard left radical circles, nonetheless. They mean to bully CUNY into keeping the egregious invitation by a Muslim dean to Sarsour to keynote a Commencement address.
“She’s a champion of equal rights, except when it comes to Jewish rights,” Foxman said of Sarsour. “She plays that game, ‘I love Jews, I don’t like Zionists.’ Well, I’ve got news for her. Every Jew who’s a Jew prays to Jerusalem, says ‘Im eshkachech Yerushalayim,’ (If I forget you, Jerusalem.) So this is a throwback to 1948.”
