CUNY Union President Blames White Christian Nationalism for Anti …

Posted By on October 1, 2022

During a June 30 NYC Council meeting regarding anti-Semitism at the City University of New York (CUNY), Professor James Davis attributed the issue to White Christian nationalism.

The Council meeting came as a response to a number of anti-Semitic incidents at CUNY that Campus Reform has previously reported on, including a resolution passed in Dec. 2021 by the CUNY Law Student Government Association demanding that the university cut all ties with Israel and endorse the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

In a video of the hearing posted to Twitter on Aug. 21 by SAFE CUNY, Professor Davis, who is also the president of a faculty union that previously condemned Israel, downplayed the impact of anti-Semitism from the Left, claiming instead that a rise in white Christian nationalism is to blame for the growing issue.


Campus Reform has reported on multiple instances of anti-Semitism on CUNY campuses this year.

In May, for example, anti-Israel activist Nerdeen Kiswani was invited to the CUNY School of Law to deliver a commencement speech, in which she voiced support for the anti-Israel BDS resolution passed in December.

Similarly, the Anti-Zionist Jewish Coalition at CUNY published a letter in August claiming that Israel commits genocide, funds Nazi militia groups, and is a settler colonial regime.
