CUNY Nixes Honorary Degree for Anti-Israel Playwright Tony Kushner


The board of trustees of the City University of New York (CUNY) voted not to honor playwright Tony Kushner with an honorary degree after board member Jeffrey Wiesenfeld opposed the request by CUNY's John Jay College, pointing out Kushner's radical anti-Israel actions, including his involvement with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel, statements opposing Israel's existence and false assertions that Israel was founded upon ethnic cleansing.

CAMERA has documented some of Kushner's radical anti-Israel statements here, as well as answering his charge of being misrepresented by McCarthyite actions.
