New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) is having an I-told-you-so moment. Hikind—a Democrat—was the first elected official to expose Linda Sarsour's ties to terrorists and now, just days after leading a panel on anti-Semitism at the New School, Sarsour participated in a fundraising event for a group with ties to the Hamas terrorist organization.
"Over $275K raised tonight in Seattle for our Promise for Palestine Tour w/ Islamic Relief—Now we are celebrating," Sarsour tweeted yesterday afternoon.
In 2014, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon banned Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) from operating in Israel. Israel believes IRW, which markets itself as a charitable agency that solicits donations from all over the world, funnels cash to Hamas.
