April 27, 2017. 4:30 pm. We gathered outside CUNY’s midtown Manhattan offices because Linda Sarsour, an anti-Zionist, pro-sharia Muslim, has been announced as their keynote speaker for the June 1, 2017 graduation of CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy. This is an outrage!
The JDL demanded that anti-Zionist, Linda Sarsour, be dropped as a CUNY Commencement speaker. NO to Sarsour!
“Governor Cuomo, NOT WITH PUBLIC FUNDs!” and CUNY – “Drop Linda Sarsour as Keynote speaker.”
Coming NEXT- on JUNE 1 – Pamela Geller and AFDI will be protesting outside the Commencement.
“We will be there. We will protest — this will not stand. Be there June 1st at Harlem’s Apollo Theater at 253 West 125th Street, from 5 – 7:30pm
CUNY has invited a pro-terror, pro-sharia, anti-semite to give the keynote commencement address. And they will not reconsider.”
“Universities have dis-invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Ann Coulter, Milos; legions of conservative thinkers and voices in defense of freedom. But, a vicious, pro-sharia, Jew-hater they will defend to the death and that is it right there. They fear jihad. They fear Islamic supremacists.
They know no harm will come to them if they smear, defame, libel or cancel us. They know we don’t destroy, maim, behead like Sarsour supporters and their violent running dogs on the left.”
“CUNY is defending its decision to honor pro-terror Jew hater Linda Sarsour with the Commencement keynote address.
The norming of evil. Such sanction is so malignant and so evil, it cannot be ignored.There is a responsibility for the time we are living in. That is why AFDI has organized a protest of CUNY’s Keynote Speaker, pro-terror, anti-Semite Linda Sarsour on June 1.”
Please RSVP here.
Join the No to Sarsour protest outside the Apollo Theater at 253 West 125th Street. June 1st, from 5 – 7:30pm. Be there!

… state Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said Sarsour’s activism – and her support of Sharia Law – makes her unfit to by the speaker at the June commencement.
“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing,” Hikind said.
Hikind was referring to a tweet Sarsour put out on Oct. 11, 2015, showing a young boy apparently throwing rocks at Israelis with the caption saying, “the definition of courage.”
Anti-Israel, pro-Sharia Law leftist activist Linda Sarsour will deliver the commencement speech at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health on June 1.
CUNY is a public university that is paid for by taxpayer funds.
“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” Barbara Aaron, chief of staff to CUNY Graduate School of Public Health dean Ayman El-Mohandes, told The Daily Caller.
A Muslim woman (LINDA SARSOUR) who has referred to “Zionist trolls” and lauded the “courage” of of rock-throwing Palestinians will deliver this year’s keynote address at the commencement ceremony of a New York City university.
Linda Sarsour is listed as a featured speaker for the June 1, 2017, graduation at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy, according to the school’s website.
We are excited to announce that our inaugural commencement ceremony will feature three powerful public health and social justice leaders:
Honorary Doctor of Science
Chirlane McCray, First Lady of New York City, will receive an honorary Doctor of Science in Public Health degree in recognition of her leadership of ThriveNYC, the most comprehensive mental health plan of any city or state in the nation.
Champion of Public Health Award
Mary Bassett, Commissioner of the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, will receive the Champion of Public Health award for her transformational work addressing population health in New York City.
Linda Sarsour, co-organizer of the National Women’s March and former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, will deliver the keynote address.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, says it is “nuts” that a taxpayer-funded institution like CUNY would invite a supporter of Shariah law to speak, CBS New York reported.
“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing,” Hikind told the station. “I mean, it’s just nuts. It makes no sense. It’s crazy to have this woman be the person who’s going to speak to the students.”
Linda Sarsour … daughter of “Palestinian” immigrants and darling of the Left.
… has said in her Tweets, referring to “Zionist trolls” and states (that ) “Nothing is creepier than Zionism.” She supports violence!
Sarsour’s anti-Israel tweets include a photo of a young Palestinian boy with a rock in each hand. It is captioned: “The definition of courage. #Palestine”
CUNY, stop this madness. Say NO to Sarsour!
