100 Holocaust survivors have turned to New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo with a desperate appeal to intercede before a New York State funded school can honor terrorism advocate Linda Sarsour. Despite a public outcry, CUNY has remained defiant following its invitation to Sarsour, a radical Sharia Law proponent who glorifies terrorists, to deliver a commencement speech at its Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy, which is scheduled for June 1.
"What Linda Sarsour advocates for—boycotts against Jewish businesses in Israel and random acts of violence against the innocent—are no different than the things that we personally experienced," the survivors wrote to the Governor. "This is a frightening reality that we hoped we would never see again. But what makes matters worse is to again see good people and respected institutions responding with indifference... Nothing good can come of Ms. Sarsour telling young people, with CUNY's imprimatur, that violence against the innocent for any reason at all is acceptable or courageous."
