A leading professor at New York’s New School who describes herself as a liberal has denounced the college for its plans to host BDS activist Linda Sarsour on Tuesday night in a forum on antisemitism.

“I feel betrayed that Tuesday, the Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism program is sponsoring a panel entitled ‘Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice,’ featuring the hatemonger Linda Sarsour,” Prof. Susan Shapiro wrote in the New York Daily News.

“Sarsour is the left-wing’s new hijab heroine, a Brooklyn-born Palestinian activist who has tweeted ‘nothing is creepier than Zionism,’ and shared a podium praising her friends Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan (a virulent anti-Semite) and Rasmea Odeh, a terrorist who spent 10 years in jail for abetting the killing of two Hebrew University students in 1969,” Shapiro – a human rights advocate who co-authored a book with a young Bosnian Muslim on his experience of “ethnic cleansing” during the 1992-95 war – wrote.

“Imagine what would happen if I tweeted ‘Nothing is creepier than Palestinians,’ proclaimed ‘gays can’t be feminists,’ appeared alongside the KKK’s David Duke and publicly boycotted everything Arab-owned or run,” Shapiro continued. “My bosses and colleagues would call me a racist and I’d probably be fired.”

She went on: “Yet trash-talking Jewish Israelis is not only permitted in progressive circles, it’s rewarded. So Sarsour gets embraced by CUNY and now The New School, is named one of Glamour magazine’s women of the year and gets celebrated by (New York City) Mayor (Bill) de Blasio.”

    The god of Muslims is revealed as a tyrant who demands Muslims and all others submit to him. Whereas in the New Testament, Jesus revealed to Christians a God who is a loving Father, who wants us to come to Him via free will. In the Old Testament (Exodus 34:6) the real God revealed Himself as “merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth”. He is the Creator of the Universe, the God of Love, and Lord of Life. The God of Israel is this true God. He insists “Thou shall not kill the innocent and just”.
    When a Muslim declares that Islam is a religion of peace, he/she is either ignorant of the Koran (Qur’an), or is deceitfully thinking of this “peace”, as it extends only to those within the Muslim Community. The deceit is that they will not tell you exactly what they mean. According to the Qur’an: “Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to unbelievers” Surah 48:29. “Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush…” Surah 9:5. Also see Surah 9:29: PICKTHAL:”Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture (Christians & Jews) as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.”. Please note that there is not a single verse in the entire Christian Bible that contains this “open-ended”, universal command to kill/or be ruthless to unbelievers.

    This is what Obama intended J-Street to be. J-Street was supposed to be an anti-Israel activist group that would usurp the mantle of Pro-Israel from true supporters.

    This panel seems to be “Community Organized.”

    I would not be surprised if this happened at a european institution. that’s the way that things are in europe. as it has often been observed, the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those who shouted, “Jews out” or “Jews to Palestine,” 80 years ago, angrily denounce the Jews…the Jews in europe and the Jews in Israel. but, mindless, fanatical anti-Semitism at the new school? that is a surprise and one that has serious implications not just for Jews.

    I hope that “a blog out of New York”‘s vigilant reporting proved influential in helping Shapiro make this good decision to raise a voice of truth against the fake grandstanding ‘activist’ Sarsour.

    This panel was concocted to be a carefully calculated insult to the Jewish community. The organizers at the New School are responsible for this act of anti-Semitism.

    Be a Jew hating muslim, and you will do very well in the itellectual circles of NYC, What are we -the victims – do about it? How many Jewish alumni will stop donating to those institutions?
