Former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind was kicked out of a Rashida Tlaib event at Rutgers University when he tried to question her “blood libel” against Jews and long history of virulent antisemitism.
The ruckus unfolded at a campus event entitled “A Global Crisis: Refugees, Migrants, and Asylum Seekers – Lessons from the Prophet Muhammad.”
Hikind, who’s Jewish, listened attentively to the speakers at the pro-Muslim event for three hours.
At that point, antisemitic Democratic Congresswoman Tlaib finally showed up. “Then Rashida came on at the end as the main speaker,” Hikind said.
That’s when Dov stood up. Before he could even ask a question about Tlaib’s “anti-Semitism and spreading blood libel,” campus police accosted him.
“As soon as I did that, one man pounced on me and I told him to immediately get his hands off and he did,” Hikind told Fox News. “The cops were not far behind and removed me before I could get any response from Tlaib.”
Hikind shared a video of that scuffle on Twitter, writing: “Police just ejected me from an event at Rutgers, which was a fine event until Rashida Tlaib 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!”
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!

Tlaib is a member of the far-left Democratic “Squad” in Congress (a.k.a. – “Gal Qaeda”). The two Muslim members of the Squad (Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib) have well-documented histories of antisemitic rhetoric.
Hikind said Tlaib never apologized for retweeting slanderous smears against Jews, including fake news that Israelis had recently murdered some Palestinians.
“She never apologized,” Hikind said. This, to me, is serious stuff.”
Hikind continued: “She didn’t offer any justification or apology for perpetuating a dangerous anti-Jewish blood libel even after I had been ejected. Instead, she played the victim as she does so expertly.”
Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar are vocal supporters of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Tlaib and Omar also have a long history of racist, antisemitic hatred.
The BDS movement is a Palestinian-led campaign promoting the punishment of Israel.
In July 2019, the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed a resolution opposing a boycott of Israel. Both Omar and Tlaib voted against the resolution.
Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin, who’s Jewish, slammed lhan Omar for her nonstop antisemitic rhetoric, noting that she continues to support anti-Jewish groups linked to the terrorist group Hamas.
“The BDS movement has not distanced itself from Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization,” Zeldin said. “BDS supporters individually are not distancing themselves from Hamas, either.”
Zeldin pointed out that a top Hamas official recently called for the death of all Jews. Predictably, anti-Semites Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib refuse to condemn this violent rhetoric. “There are members of this House who continue to prop up the BDS movement and blame Israel for all its challenges,” he said.
In July 2019, Omar introduced a resolution to support boycotts of Israel. Zeldin said enough is enough, and that American Jews are getting enraged by Omar’s continued antisemitism.
“We have witnessed the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel hate throughout the world, in our nation, on college campuses and within the halls of Congress,” Zeldin said. “Unfortunately, there are members of this House who have emboldened this rhetoric.”
