On Friday, June 3, 2011 CUNY (the City University of New York) held it’s Graduation Ceremonies at the Javits Center in Manhattan, where they chose to bestow an Honorary Degree on Israel Basher, Tony Kushner .This after Wiesenfeld, the son of Holocaust survivors, had denounced Kushner’s hostile views on Israel, questioning whether he was an appropriate candidate for an Honorary Degree. In spite of the very public support of CUNY Trustee, Wiesenfeld, the honorary degree was reinstated. So Tony Kushner who accuses Israel of “Ethnic Cleansing” while young Israeli soldiers stand on the front lines of Jihadist aggression and Israeli families bear the barrage of rocket fire in their homes received his Honorary Degree from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

After Kushner received his Honorary Degree, he told the graduates that they, too, must engage with society’s thorniest issues and urged them to “find the human in yourself by finding the citizen in yourself, the activist, the hero in yourself.”He continued, saying they faced a “beset and besieged world” where slavery masquerades as freedom, urging them to respond to the planet’s cries for help. “There’s injustice everywhere. There’s artificial scarcity everywhere. There’s desperate human need, poverty and untreated illness and exploitation everywhere. Everywhere in the world is in need of repair, so fix it. Solve these things.”

He warns of Injustice? Slavery?Activism, and of course”The Planet”. All of this on the heels of the two weeks of alarming pronouncements made by Obama regarding Israel’s future, demanding a return to the indefensible pre-1967 borders.

Those who rallied outside the Javits Center warned, as have others over and over that “A Hamas-Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority state, with or without all the borders the PA demands, would leave all of what would remain of Israel within Katyusha missile range.”

Unfortunately, Kushner and Obama represent our worst nightmare. This dangerous anti-Israel rhetoric and appeasement of Jihadist goals is on the rise, on our campuses and in Washington.


We Must Stand With Israel. The only Democracy in the Middle East.

The Time is NOW to speak out in Defense of Israel.

Silence is not Golden. 

And now, most disturbingly, we have seen this very offensive material published in California  as part of a campaign against male circumcision. It is so anti- SEMITIC that it clearly brings us back to the horrors of the 20th Century.

 Front page of 'Foreskin Man' comic, created as part of campaign to ban circumcision in California.

“‘Foreskin Man,’ with its grotesque anti-Semitic imagery and themes, reaches a new low and is disrespectful and deeply offensive,” “… the imagery invokes the “age-old anti-Semitic canards” such as the blood libel, the accusation that Jews ritually murder Christian children.

 Never Again Should mean NEVER AGAIN.

    Muslims are rushing at two of the Israeli borders today, as predicted.
    Deaths reported: Muslims 13, Israelis 0!

    The way to stop the UN from creating a Palestinian state per John Bolton is to do what we did under Reagan – tell the UN that they won’t get any US funding if they do it. Its that simple and it doesn’t depend on the Muslim President Obama – Congress can do this on its own. So, call your congressmen/women and let them know that’s what you want them to do.
