    Lynn Stewart was honored by the CUNY law school. She's the one who passed on secrets from a Muslim cleric imprisioned on terrorist charges to Egyptian followers who then committed murders as a result. Then there's also Leonard Jeffries. He's the CUNY professer who doesn't much like Jews. He's also a black nationalist whose schtick is that white people are the "ice people" while black people are the "sun people". Bloomberg is right in that academic freedom means you don't punish a school or its professers in the way that the Israeli right wing would like to punish acadamicians in Israel who are too critical of them. However, by featuring BDS, CUNY hasn't exactly dispelled its reputation for surrounding primitive nastiness with academic luster. If that's what passes at CUNY for broad knowledge and considered analysis, then it's claim to be a "poor man's Harvard" is pretty dated and hollow.
