WATCH: Dishonest or ignorant? Jewish councilman blasts CUNY antisemitism claim

Students at the City University of New York-BMCC have been fighting extreme anti-Israel activism on campus, where Jews – students and faculty – have been made to feel very uncomfortable.

On Yom Hashoah, the CUNY president cast the entire antisemitism problem on “the increasingly vocal far right movement in the United States.”

New York City Council member Kaman Yeger slammed that claim during hearings on antisemitism at CUNY last year, when union president James Davis made a similar statement about white nationalism being the problem on campus.
