NEW YORK (Yaakov M / VINnews) — CUNY’s Law School has finally released a video of a commencement address in which vicious lies were told about Israel, after the school buried the shocking footage for two weeks.

The speaker, a known antisemitic BDS supporter, accused Israel of “indiscriminate” murder, encouraging “lynch mobs” and praised resistance to “Zionism around the world.” Her words were greeted with thunderous applause.

The school, which has a long history of antisemitism, had hidden the video after coming under criticism for the ceremony.

This was the second straight year that the law school’s commencement speaker dedicated much of their address to vicious anti-Israel rhetoric.

The commencement ceremony on May 12 featured anti-Israel activist Fatima Mohammed as keynote speaker. The commencement speaker is elected by the student body.

Mohammad repeatedly attacked Israel with heinous lies, propaganda and talking points, linking it to white supremacy, oppression, colonialism and violence.

“This is the law school that passed and endorsed BDS on a student and faculty level, recognizing that absent a critical imperialism settler colonialism lens, our work and the school’s mission statement is void of value as Israel continues to indiscriminately rain bullets and bombs on worshipers, murdering the old, the young, attacking the funerals and graveyards as it encourages lynch mobs,” she said.

“We are the student body and faculty that fought back when the investor-focused administration attempted to cross the BDS picket line, saying loud and clear that Palestine can no longer be the exception to our pursuit of justice, that our morality will not be purchased by investors,” she said.

Mohammad also said that CUNY “continues to train IDF soldiers” to carry out “violence globally,” blaming the school system for being “committed to its donors, not to its students.”

She repeatedly linked racism against Black Americans to Israel, and said Senator Chuck Schumer had “dignified” the killing of Jordan Neely.

“May we rejoice in the corners of our New York City bedroom apartments and dining tables, may it be fuel for the fight against capitalism, racism, imperialism, and Zionism around the world,” she said in closing.

Mohammed is a member of CUNY Law’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine.

Last year, CUNY Law School passed a resolution decrying what it falsely called the “unceasing military occupation and colonization of Palestine by the Israeli state” as “both settler colonialism and structural racism, supported politically, financially, and militarily by the US.”

This is the new Arab jihad. Putting terrorists in the congress and speaking in colleges to promote the exact thing that they claim to be speaking against. The Arabs are the ones who want colonialism. For them, a dozen Arab countries isn’t enough. They want more and more land, Inc Israel. However, Israel is only seeking to live in peace on a small strip of land, around the size of NJ..

I can’t understand the support that she receives in her speech, from members of the Black community. Arabs enslaved Black for centuries, long before the Europeans did. Of course, she will never mention that.

This is typical of college/university campuses nationwide, there are millions of these Jew hating terrorists supporters in the US, all voting for the Democrats, getting elected to Congress, yet the ADL and the corrupt media will have you think the few thousand neo nazis are the threat,.

Years ago I happened to have to attend an event at the CUNY Graduate Center. In the lobby were not one but two big anti-Israel displays full of misinformation and disinformation.

Then the CUNY School of Public Health had Linda Sarsour as it’s commencement speaker. Never mind that she has no background in public health.

CUNY needs a housecleaning.

Who wrote the speech for her? She didn’t understand half the words she was attempting to read. And she couldn’t figure out the punctuation either.
Israel raining bullets on innocent Palestinians? Israel who delivers surgically placed bombs and bullets on heinous murderers and avoids collateral damage to the nth degree! The fact is that these Palestinian barbarians choose to position themselves among women and children civilians in order to paralyze the ability of the ethical Israeli army to get them. What a low-life. May she have her tongue chopped of and her teeth smashed and likewise for the supporters who cheered her rant.

My Congressman, Ritchie Torres, said about this:

“Imagine being so crazed by hatred for Israel as a Jewish State that you make it the subject of your commencement speech at a law school graduation.

“Anti-Israel derangement syndrome at work.”
