NEW YORK (VINnews) — A CUNY law professor last week was confronted by a well-known Jewish reporter, asking about the man’s disgraceful comments made moments prior.

Professor Tarek Z. Ismail accused the United States of being guilty of human rights violations on par with Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, and Iran. When confronted about his despicable comments, the professor stammered and dodged the question, before walking away from the reporter.

Ismail spoke at a town hall on proposed legislation entitled “Not On Our Dime! Act,” which would “prevent NY state-registered charities from funding Israeli settlement activities.”

Ismail said that the USA needs to be added to the list of some of the worst human rights violators. At a gathering following the event, Reuvain Borchardt of Hamodia asked him to specify which violations he was referring to.

Ismail stammered and dodged the question, claiming not to be available to speak (although he appeared very available before he heard the question.) He turned to “Emily”, apparently a press representative, hoping to be rescued, while turning away and completely avoiding Borchardt.

Ismail said, “Check out the filings..ummm…coming up soon in Geneva…ummm..committed by the US…I don’t have time to give you specifics.”

Borchardt pressed him for more details, however he could not defend his indefensible comments.

Councilwoman Inna Vernikov tweeted the video, commenting: “Professors who hate Israel, and Professors who hate America… these are the “role models” who poison young minds at our University campuses on the ways of the world. And this is more of what’s coming to @CUNY with the hiring of Marc Lamont Hill.”

Over the past century, Jewish CUNY alumni donated money to CUNY with very great generosity.

Jews must STOP giving money to CUNY, and instead help Jewish causes like the Hesder Yeshivahs and Honest Reporting.

CUNY needs a thorough housecleaning.

Anyone who thinks the US is comparable to Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, and Iran is obviously incompetent to teach anything or to do research.
