Former ADL Chief Abraham Foxman: Sarsour a ‘Bigot’ Who Should Not Have Received CUNY Invite

7

Foxman was always a running dog for the left, and he is wholly undeserving of the fawning treatment Algemeiner gives him here. But he is right that Sarsour is a bigot, although wrong that she should not be canceled. Enough is enough. For decency’s sake alone, this vicious hatemonger should be canceled.

“Former ADL Chief Abraham Foxman Warns Against ‘Politicization’ of Antisemitism; Calls Sarsour a ‘Bigot’ Who Should Not Have Received CUNY Invite,” by Ben Cohen, Algemeiner, April 30, 2017:

…During an interview with The Algemeiner on Friday, the conversation inevitably turned to the subject of Linda Sarsour, the vocal BDS advocate who, this past week alone, earned the praise of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the pages of Time magazine and was invited to speak at the commencement ceremony at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health.

“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.”

Yet Foxman is careful not to charge every Palestinian solidarity activist with antisemitism. “You can be an advocate of the Palestinian liberation movement without being an enemy of Jewish liberation,” Foxman stressed. But that, he continued, is not the case with Sarsour. “She is an enemy of Jewish sovereignty and Jewish liberation,” he stated. “She’s a bigot, and she shouldn’t have been invited [to CUNY].”

But now that the invitation had been extended, Foxman said, CUNY would be better off learning about her views and distancing itself appropriately, rather than turning Sarsour into a “free speech martyr.”…

    I would let her speak….but since the left has made free speech a partisan issue with the cancellations of Milo and Ann Coulter I’m done defending the leftist speakers as well.
    It would have been better had they invited Pam to speak and counter her arguments the next day.

    • Mark Steiner

      A no-contest situation. Mr. Geller would win.

    • No one would be there the next day as graduation will have occurred.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Let her speak, with equal time for the opposite opinion to be heard as well.

    Linda Sarsour needs a good leg over by a real man, a non muzzrat. Othterwise a bullet in her head who ever she goes iin New York City. Put a bullet in her head and we pay the bill. (For this another website or email)

    Since CUNY is hell bent on preserving Soursewer’s free speech rights, let her speak. But……bring in bus loads of Trump supporters, pro-Israel people and the like to the event and shout her down. So she can’t speak. You know, like the the evil left would do for a conservative speaker at say, Berkeley. This is the right’s chance.

    Just watched Morton Klein (ZOA) on Martha MacCallum’s program recite this quote. MacCallum cut him off.
