Programming Alert: Don't miss "Tucker Carlson Tonight" at a new time, 8:00pm ET, starting on Monday, followed at 9:00pm by "The Five."


There's been some controversy after the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health announced a pro-Palestinian Sharia Law advocate will serve as the school's commencement speaker.

“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” said Barbara Aaron, chief of staff to the school’s dean, Ayman El-Mohandes.

Now, some, including state Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), are saying that Sarsour’s activisim and beliefs make her unfit to serve as speaker at the taxpayer-funded university's commencement.

“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists," Hikind said. "She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing."

“I mean, it’s just nuts. It makes no sense. It’s crazy to have this woman be the person who’s going to speak to the students,” Hikind added.

Despite some complaints, the commencement program "has not changed," according to El-Mohandes.

Sarsour, who was one of the organizers of the Women's March in January, was recently included in the Time 100 list of the "most influential people."
