     The president of New York University’s student bar association lost a cushy law job offer after sending an incendiary pro-Hamas message — cheering the terror attack on civilians and fully blaming Israel for the bloodshed. No one should hire the animal.

     Ryna Workman also accused the Jewish state of “genocide” in the missive to the school — which caused so much outrage that a law firm planning to employ her rescinded its offer just hours later over the “inflammatory comments.”  “I want to express, first and foremost, my unwavering and absolute solidarity with Palestinians in their resistance against oppression towards liberation and self-determination,” wrote Workman, who identifies as nonbinary.

     “Israel bears full responsibility for this tremendous loss of life. This regime of state-sanctioned violence created the conditions that made resistance necessary,” their post continued.  “I will not condemn Palestinian resistance,” they went on to write, instead condemning the “violence of … apartheid, military occupation, the United States military industrial complex and obfuscating genocide as a ‘complex issue,'” among other things.  Blowback to the post was swift on Manhattan’s Greenwich Village campus.

     The elected student president of the NYU Law School Bar Association just sent out a message refusing to condemn Hamas's mass slaughter and effectively cheerleading it. pic.twitter.com/mtn3ZUP4Li
