Tony Kushner likely to be awarded CUNY honorary degree despite Zionist diatribe
C.U.N.Y. proposed awarding an honorary degree to one of America's best playwrights, Tony Kushner. An "impassioned speech" by one Zionist trustee, Jeffrey S. Weisenfeld, sidetracked the award until the Trustees began to think clearly. Board Chair Beno Schmidt said the decision not to award the degree to Kushner was "a mistake of principle and not merely policy." The Zionist cabal in the U.S. never stops trying to impose its version of reality on everyone else. This time it didn't work, but all too often it does.
