Here is the embodiment of what every American should look for in a politician: New York Democratic state Rep. Hikind is brave, honest and true to freedom. Hikind spoke at my rally last May, protesting CUNY’s choice of Sarsour to give its commencement address.
Hikind has said this of Sarsour, and it is the best summation of what is wrong with this dangerous pro-sharia Jew-hater, and the adulation surrounding her: “The problem, as I see it, isn’t that Sarsour’s cunning has bought her some Jewish friends whose goal is to make her seem kosher; far-left Jewish liberals who see only Sarsour’s eagerness to raise money for American Jewish cemeteries and are willing to look beyond her Tweets, which celebrate filling Israeli cemeteries with new bodies. The problem isn’t short-sighted feminists who accept Sarsour as their new spokesmodel despite her advocacy of Sharia law, which would strip these feminists—and all women—of rights even females on the Mayflower possessed. The problem isn’t politicians who allow Sarsour to fundraise for their re-election campaigns and then excuse her fetish for murderers as ‘just her opinion.’ No, the problem is the complacency of the right and intelligent middle. The problem is the hush that’s fallen over those who know better but turn a blind eye as this advocate of terrorism is tacitly legitimized by CUNY. The problem is the deafening silence. Pamela Geller is not being silent.”
“NY Democrat Calls For Investigation Into Allegation That Linda Sarsour Covered Up Sexual Assault,” by Benny Johnson, Daily Caller, December 18, 2017:
A former employee alleged in a story published Sunday that Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour covered up and dismissed complaints of graphic sexual assault. Now New York Democratic state Rep. Dov Hikind is calling for an investigation into the charges.
Sarsour is accused of enabling the alleged sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for her, Asmi Fathelbab, according to the victim and two sources directly familiar with the matter.
The assault took place at the Arab American Association while Sarsour served as executive director. Fathelbab told The Daily Caller that instead of properly dealing with the complaints, Sarsour dismissed them because Fathelbab “was not attractive enough to be harassed” and the accused was a “good Muslim” who was “always at the Mosque.”
Hikind, a Democrat from Brooklyn who has served since 1983, is calling for an investigation into the prominent activist.
“If Linda Sarsour enabled the sexual assault & harassment of a woman who worked for her, as alleged, this should concern everyone,” he said in a statement Monday. “Women everywhere should be demanding an investigation into these charges.”
In a tweet, Hikind said the issue was bipartisan and that people across the “political spectrum should seek the truth about charges.”Fathelbab recalled how her harasser, named Majed Seif, would grope and rub up against her while she was working:
“He would sneak up on me during times when no one was around, he would touch me, you could hear me scream at the top of my lungs,” Fathelbab told TheDC. “He would pin me against the wall and rub his crotch on me.”
Fathelbab claims one of Majed’s alleged favorite past times was sneaking up on her with a full erection….
