Fatima Mousa Mohammed

Fatima Mousa Mohammed – CUNY Law’s recent commencement speaker – is a rabid antisemite that utilizes social media and participates in dangerous pro-Palestinian rallies to spread her hatred towards Jews, Israel, and America. She advocates for the destruction of the world’s only Jewish state, pushes the antisemitic BDS movement, and expresses support for violence.

In a since-deleted slew of deranged antisemitic and violent threats, Fatima Mohammed stated: “May every Zionist burn in the hottest pit in hell” and compared the Jewish state to Nazis. According to a Pew study, more than 90% of the world’s Jews identify as Zionists. Also, Mohammed’s now deleted Instagram account bio shockingly read “Always remember, death to Israel.”

Additional antisemitic tirades of Fatima Mousa Mohammed include:

  • In response to the 2021 violence involving Hamas and Palestinian terrorists launching over 4,000 rockets against Israel, Mohammed tweeted, “May Allah destroy Israel.”
  • In the summer of 2021, Fatima tweeted, “I pray upon the death of the USA…having an American flag in your bio/location is adjacent to having the Israeli to me you are all t£rr0r1sts to me.
  • In May 2022, Fatima Mohammed tweeted, “Quick make dua [pray] for the fall of Zionism and the destruction of Israel.”

Fatima Mohammed often serves as a speaker for various events arranged by the radical group Within Our Lifetime (WOL). WOL, an extremist and militant group founded by 2020 “Antisemite of the Year” Nerdeen Kiswani, often serves as ground zero for assaults on Jews.

Mohammed began studying at CUNY Law School in 2021 and it wasn’t long before she began pushing BDS and attacking Zionism. In March 2022, during a WOL rally, she demanded all Zionist professors be removed from CUNY. During the same rally, she falsely claimed Israel was responsible for American police brutality and compared racial tensions in the U.S. to the Israel/Palestine conflict, stating: “The same forces incarcerating Black people in this country, are the same forces that are killing Palestinians.”

Also at that rally, ‘Antisemite of the Week’ Sadaah Masoud assaulted a Jewish man named Matt Greenman. Moments before Masoud’s violent attack on Greenman, Fatima shouted, “and the last reminder of today is: greater empires have crumbled beneath our feet! Israel… you will crumble too! It’s a matter of time!… by the glory to the resistance, it will happen!” Masoud is now serving 18 months in prison for attacking Greenman.

In 2023, Mohammed was elected to give the CUNY Law graduating class’s commencement speech. In her remarks, Mohammed promoted violence, spread hatred of Israel and the police, paid tribute to Hamas financiers, and demonstrated solidarity with the BDS movement. Her words garnered harsh criticism from around the country from Jewish organizations, U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle, as well as prominent CUNY alums.

The following are frightening highlights from her speech:

  • Fatima Mohammed stated, “In this moment of celebrating who we are, I want to celebrate CUNY Law as one of the few, if not the only, law school to make a public statement defending the right of its students to organize and speak out against Israeli settler colonialism.”
  • She advocated for Hamas terrorists (Holy Land Five) who were indicted for transferring large funds to Hamas in the name of humanitarian aid. 
  • Fatima concluded in her speech at the sounds of applause from the audience that the “joy, excitement, and rage that fills this auditorium will fuel for the fight against capitalism, racism, imperialism, and Zionism around the world.” She further rallied the crowd by declaring a revolution will come

Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, boycotting Israeli goods, and drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis are deemed antisemitic by the IHRA working definition of antisemitism.
