Assemblyman Urges NY Gov Cuomo to Cancel Sarsour Commencement Speech: Her Support For Terrorism Disqualifies Her

New York – Sharia law activist Linda Sarsour has ties to Hamas yet she was invited to give a commencement speech at taxpayer funded CUNY. As expected, conservative activists have shown outrage. Surprisingly, a Democrat is now calling for her speech to be canceled.

Democrat Assemblyman, Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) is calling on NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo to prevent Sarsour from giving this commencement speech arguing ‘Sarsour’s support for terrorism disqualifies her’. Amen!

“Sarsour’s support for terrorism disqualifies her.”

Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) expressed outrage that radical Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour has been invited to give a CUNY commencement speech. Sarsour, a self-proclaimed activist who glorified and encouraged terrorist stone throwers as “courageous,” was invited by the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy to address this year’s graduating class. Having already called on Chancellor James Milliken to step in and rescind this invitation, Hikind is now calling upon Governor Andrew Cuomo to prevent this outrage from occurring.

“Governor Cuomo has been a great supporter of Israel and the Israeli people,” said Hikind. “Our Governor has stood firm against the racist BDS movement. He recently visited Israel stating, ‘If you really care, you show up.’ Now I ask the Governor to intervene in this outrageous choice.

“Linda Sarsour’s record of advocating for terrorists speaks for itself. If she had only called Arabs who hurl rocks at moving cars ‘the definition of courage,’ that would have been enough. Stones killed Adva Bitton’s three-year-old daughter Adele and badly injured her other two small children in 2013 in Israel. But there’s so much more! Sarsour publicly called for violence against Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a feminist Muslim author who opposes violence… She recently shared a stage with and praised Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine convicted by an Israeli court for her role in the murder of two students, Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe, in a Jerusalem supermarket bombing.

“The United States and the rest of the free world are locked in conflict with terrorists and rogue nations that employ the cruelest tactics against innocent victims. Those who applaud terrorists must be exposed for what they are. It would be bad enough if a private university were to offer Sarsour a platform, but a City university funded by our tax dollars? Sarsour is not the benevolent voice of peaceful Islam. She does not seek to build bridges. She is a propagandist and an apologist for terrorists. She is not someone CUNY should be inviting to speak to its graduates.”

Linda Sarsour is a snake. She openly calls for Sharia law to be implemented here in the United States. She is an overt supporter of Palestinian terrorists and attacks women who have been abused under Islam, yet somehow became the new face of the feminist movement. She is being given a platform to speak at a taxpayer funded University while conservatives are routinely silenced!

As Pamela Gellar said, “She (Sarsour) should be in jail, not on a podium.”

Fun Fact: Sarsour means cockroach in Arabic. Fitting for this vile creature who just won’t go away, right?
