NY Assemblyman Dov Hikind: Vilifiyers Of Sarah Palin Are Engaging In Blood Libel

New York – Statement By Assemblyman Dov Hikind in defense of Sarah Palin’s use of the term “blood libel”

As someone whose grandparents were slaughtered in the Holocaust; whose parents survived the horrors of Auschwitz; and as the Assembly representative of the largest contingency of Holocaust survivors, I resent the recent attacks on Sarah Palin for her use of the term “blood libel” in defense of accusations lobbed against her by those wishing to lay blame for the tragic shooting in Tucson, Arizona. This is nothing more than an attempt to vilify and malign her, and I am not a Palin supporter. I would argue that those who continue to demonize her are themselves engaging in a blood libel.

    Very strong condemnation of those who sought to destroy Sarah Palin. He says that he is not a palin supporter. Let’s see how the LSM try to get out of reporting this major piece of news. Will FOX News scoop this?

    Cheri, it would be more accurate to change the tense of the verb “to seek” from past (“sought”) to present (“seek”), as it is still very much an ongoing action.

    As for the LSM picking up on this, Assemblyman Dov WHO? Maybe it’ll run in the Jewish Forward and/or the “five cities” enclave on Long Island, but don’t be surprised if it gets zero to no coverage in the LSM.
