A former Democratic New York state assemblyman and noted pro-Israel advocate Dov Hikind was escorted out of a Muslims for Peace event held on Rutgers University campus during a speech by Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
Police just ejected me from an event of @Muslims4Peace at @RutgersU which was a fine event until @RashidaTlaib showed up. I challenged her about her antisemitism and spreading of an anti-Jewish blood libel! She had no answer for me.
They will never silence us!

“What about your anti-Semitism?” Hikind asked before being drowned out by “Rashida” chants from the crowd. Hikind was then walked out of the event by several police officers.
Hikind demanded Tlaib apologize for spreading what he calls “blood libel” against Jews after it was revealed that the Palestinian boy had died from drowning instead of kidnapping and execution, as suggested by the tweet Tlaib retweeted. Tlaib quietly deleted the tweet in question and did apologize for posting information that wasn’t “fully verified.”
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.” More
So what we have here is a rare moment when one Democrat is holding another accountable. And what happens? They remove the one holding the other accountable. Democrats do not like being held accountable and the vast majority of Democrats will not hold each other accountable.
