Former New York State Democrat Assemblyman Dov Hikind was thrown out of an event over the weekend for confronting far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) over her extensive history of promoting anti-Semitism.

The event, hosted by ‘Muslims4Peace,’ was held on Sunday at Rutgers University and was titled: “A Global Crisis: Refugees, Migrants, and Asylum Seekers – Lessons from the Prophet Muhammad”

Hikind told The Daily Wire that the head presenter for Muslims4Peace introduced Tlaib by saying “I don’t agree with her politically, but we should hear what she has to say.”

“As [Tlaib] started to speak about ‘showing up for allies,’ I decided it was time to take her to task for her recent promotion of an anti-Jewish blood libel,” Hikind said. “I stood up and asked her ‘what about your antisemitism? What about your spreading of a blood libel?'”

“And before I could finish my question, one man jumped at me and grabbed me,” Hikind continued. “I warned him to immediately get his hands off and he complied. The police were waiting on the sidelines and jumped in a second later and forcibly removed me. They did their job, and I have no qualms with them. But Rashida couldn’t answer me to my face.”


“I stood ten feet away from her, and all she could do was play the victim,” Hikind continued. “I was told that after I was escorted out she claimed that my question was part of a pattern of discrimination against people like her grandmother. In reality, she’s a shameless anti-Semite who hides her hate behind the guise of victimhood although she’s the only one consistently guilty of perpetuating hate. She’s the one guilty of promoting libelous lies that lead directly to violence! At the end of it all, Rashida showed us again that she has no backbone and has no real defense or justification for her abhorrent statements.”

Hikind said that he challenged her because “if we tolerate an anti-Semite on a college campus with one of the largest Jewish student populations in the country, allowing her to spew her vile hatred unopposed, then we are losing the battle against antisemitism. Then we’re sending the wrong message to our Jewish students that hateful lies can flow freely within the walls of academia. Instead, we showed the contrary. That just as she has the right to her hate speech, we have the same right, but more so an obligation, to counter it on the spot.”

Hikind calling out Tlaib for the false blood libel accusation that she promoted stemmed from a tweet from a Palestinian official that she retweeted last month who responded to the death of a Palestinian boy by writing, “The heart just shatters. The pain is unbearable. No words.”

The official was commenting on a tweet that falsely stated: “KIDNAPPED & EXECUTED 7 year old #Palestinian child Qusai was kidnapped by a Herd of violent #Israeli settlers, assaulted & thrown in a water well was found this morning frozen to death in Beit Hanina, #Jerusalem after #Israeli forces assaulted search teams.”

Rashida Tlaib promoted all of it to her over 900,000 Twitter and never apologized despite repeated calls to do so.
