In her speech at City University of New York (CUNY) Law School, Yemeni-Muslim Fatima Mohammed reminded the audience that so-called “’Palestine’ can no longer be the exception to our pursuit of justice,” and discussed what she likes to call “human rights violations inflicted by ‘genocidal’ Israel on Palestinians.”
Mohammed gave the commencement speech on May 13, 2023. Like all the commencement speeches for the last nine years, CUNY Law livestreamed the speech. However, in the past week, Mohammed’s commencement speech was taken down. According to reports, CUNY Law removed the video due to allegations that Mohammed’s speech was viciously anti-Semitic.
CUNY Law is also being accused of taking down and censoring last year’s student commencement speech by Nerdeen Kiswani. Both speeches were given by Muslim women and highlight the suffering of Palestinians. (So why do Muslims keep getting chosen to give this kind of speech when everyone knows they will insert their own Jew-hating agenda into it? See examples below)
In a statement, CAIR-NY’s Executive Director Afaf Nasher, Esq. said: “We strongly condemn the apparent decision by CUNY Law to remove Fatima Mohammed’s commencement speech, particularly considering its focus on social justice and the plight of the Palestinian
people (terrorists who keep killing Israeli civilians).
Academic institutions should embrace robust discussions on international issues, including human rights, without fear of censorship or reprisal.
Here is an example of Mohammed’s virulent Jew-hatred:

The silencing of voices that seek to shed light on human rights abuses undermines the principles of academic freedom and respectful dialogue that universities should uphold. It is essential that diverse perspectives are not only welcomed but encouraged, even when they challenge prevailing narratives. (You mean what Muslims never do for critics of Islam?)
Anything less is an affront to CUNY Law’s alleged values as a public interest law school and to the Constitution. “CAIR-NY stands in solidarity with the student commencement speaker who bravely sought to elevate the (fake) plight of Palestinians and the human rights abuses they face. We affirm their right to express their views freely and without interference.

CAIR-NY calls on CUNY Law to rectify this situation immediately, issue a public apology, and ensure that such actions are not repeated in the future. It is imperative that CUNY Law takes steps to create a safe, welcoming environment for Muslims and student supporters of Palestinian (terrorists) rights. Nasher also condemned CUNY Law’s removal of another anti-Semite, Nerdeen Kiswani’s commencement speech.
CAIR has previously called on the Biden administration to stand up to the new Israeli government composed of openly “racist” (what “race” is Islam?) and genocidal Israeli politicians. (Don’t you mean the genocidal leaders of Hamas and the PA calling for the annihilation of Israel?)
Below is her CUNY Law Commencement smear speech:
kys ™️ says
there was no Nakba the Nakba is those filthy soulless vermins are still considered anything but a crime against the light simply for existing let alone them having any right aside from rebid dogs
If white people are so terrible why the f*** doesn’t she go back to beautiful peaceful Yemen? Trump kept trash like this OUT of the USA.
Unfortunately her viewpoint is widespread among younger generations.
Only hope is comes ages, comes wisdom.
