Assemblymember Dov Hikind, a longtime critic of Linda Sarsour, is getting ready to leave office at the end of the year but on his way out the door, he is taking a parting shot at the controversial Arab-American civil rights leader from Bay Ridge.
Hikind, a Democrat who represents Borough Park, released a statement on Nov. 26 urging progressive Democrats to speak out against Sarsour, co-chairperson of the Women's March, for what he described as her anti-Semitic views.
Sarsour has denied being an anti-Semite.
"It's time for my colleagues in government, and elsewhere, to denounce all forms of racism and anti-Semitism, regardless of the source. Show us that the progressive movement is not a safe haven for haters," Hikind said in a statement.
