Former Dem lawmaker Dov Hikind on why he confronted Jihad- Rep Rashida Tlaib at Rutgers

13

Many prominent Jewish Democrats such as Alan Dershowitz believe that by continuing to support the Democrat Party, they can successfully marginalize the growing number of anti-Semitic Democrats who have hijacked the party. They are wrong. By continuing to support the Democrat Party with their votes and with their money, they are telling the Democrat Party’s leaders that they will not pay a political price for their embrace of Tlaib, Omar, AOC, and many others. No Jewish American should support the Democrat Party in any way.

Former Dem lawmaker confronts Rashida Tlaib on anti-Semitism at campus event: It’s about ‘fighting hate’

By Fox News, February 13, 2020:

Former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind encouraged people to “speak out” against anti-Semitism on Thursday, just days after campus police removed him from an event at Rutgers University for asking guest speaker Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., about her past comments that he believes were anti-Semitic.

“People out there need to speak out and not be afraid. It’s not about Democrats, Republicans, it is about fighting hate, period,” Hikind said on “Fox & Friends First.”

The event, titled, “A Global Crisis: Refugees, Migrants, and Asylum Seekers – Lessons from the Prophet Muhammad,” was organized Sunday by the group Muslims4Peace. Hikind described the New Jersey event as “fine” and spreading “nice messages” of tolerance, unity, and love.

Hikind, who is the founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism, told Fox News that after sitting in the audience for nearly three hours, Tlaib spoke at the event.

Hikind said he stood up and asked her about “her anti-Semitism and spreading a blood libel.” The blood libel originally referred to the false claim during the Middle Ages that Jews used Christian blood to make matzah for Passover, but has since been used to describe other false claims that Jews committed heinous acts.

As soon as he asked the question, multiple people rushed over to him and he was soon escorted out.

Hikind was referring to Tlaib retweeting a message from Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi that spread the unsubstantiated claim that Israeli Jews murdered 8-year-old Palestinian Qais Abu Ramila, who went missing in January before he was found dead. Abu Ramila’s death was later ruled an accidental drowning.
