American taxpayer funded City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy has announced this year’s commencement speaker will be none other than, pro-Sharia, pro-Hamas, pro-female mutilation Linda Sarsour.
The Dean of the school, Barbara Aaron, made the announcement in a statement –
“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater.“
Sarsour was one of the main organizers of the Women’s March on Washington back in January that many women found so very abhorrent and not at all representative of their values.
Sarsour is also the former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York.
She is Palestinian by birth, coming to America as a refugee. In response to America’s hospitality, Sarsour has brought with her the very things that made where she came from so very oppressive and she actively advocates for those things while the left cheers her on.

Just last month, during the Day Without Women protest which she co-organized, Sarsour was arrested outside Trump Tower in New York City, the gender strike was largely a bust.
Sarsour spoke with and embraced Rasmea Odeh, a convicted terrorist, Odeh, 69, was convicted in Israel in 1970 of taking part in two bombings, killing two students and injuring 9 others.
After serving 10 years in prison and lying on her immigration papers, Odeh immigrated to the US. She is now scheduled for deportation. Yet, Sarsour said she felt “honored and privileged to be here in this space, and honored to be on this stage with Rasmea,” reports the New York Post.
Sarsour has frequently defended Odeh, the convicted terrorist.
In 2014, Sarsour castigated the United States for caring that Odeh was a convicted terrorist. Apparently, we have just “lost our way as a nation.”
Targeting, criminalizing, deporting torture victims like Rasmea Odeh reminds me once again how we lost our way as a nation. #Justice4Rasmea

In December 2016, Sarsour spoke at the 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America. At this event, she posed for a family photo with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee. He is also a former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his work for the terrorist group. The US government designated Hamas as a terrorist organization as of 1995. According to the FBI, Salah Sarsour was fundraising for Hamas during this time period. He was also named as the money man for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), a Texas-based group that served as a financial conduit for Hamas as of 2001.
Meanwhile, Linda Sarsour has times to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group which was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme that provided funding to the terror group Hamas by the US government in 2009.
Yet THIS woman is some sort of female ACTIVIST and HERO?
Essence magazine named her in their May “100 Woke Women” issue, yet this SAME woman publically advocates for sharia law – one of the most oppressive legal systems towards women out there and publically attacks women who are also refugees, one of which is a victim of female genital mutilation all due to their criticism of Islam. Brigitte Gabriel is an anti-Muslim activist who founded ACT for America. Hirsi Ali is a women’s rights advocate, a victim of female genital mutilation and a very vocal critic of Islam.

Sarsour gave an ardent defense of Sharia Law in 2014 advocating it as “reasonable” since it consists merely of not eating pork, refraining from alcohol and following Islamic teachings.
Sarsour who lauds herself as a feminist voice once tweeted of how wonderful Saudi Arabia was simply because they have a paid maternity leave program –

Sarsour dismisses the fact that women in Saudi Arabia are treated as second-class citizens who are unable to drive, interact with men, and dress as they please as inconsequential. Saudi women were recently just given an upgrade in status, going from object to mammal — this means that rather than being treated much like a home appliance a woman has a shared legal status now more in line with a beloved pet in Saudi Arabia.
And this is who our tax dollars will fund to speak to our college students at a publically funded university? Yet Ann Coulter is not allowed to speak at Berkeley?
