New York City Funding for Anti-Israel Hate-Fest

Ron Torossian of Algemeiner takes CUNY’s Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies to task for its two day conference criticizing Israel.

As if that isn’t bad enough, New York City tax-payers, by footing the bill, are being used to further the Anti-Israel political agenda of this despicable conference.

But for reasons that can only be called dubious, International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge determined any 40-year reference to the “Black September” events – even a simple moment of silence – is inappropriate .
