Assembly candidate for the 48th district is calling on Assemblyman Dov Hikind to retract the ad that was published in the weekend papers, in which he was lying about his record, delivering for the community, when others did not.
“The fact that Dov takes the credit for the efforts in releasing Mr. Ostreicher as a mission accomplished, while he remains imprisoned in Bolivian jail without a trial for over a year, is appalling for the integrity of our community,” said Moshe Tischler. “Politicizing this healthfully issue and exploiting it, is only hurting the family and the well-being of Mr. Ostreicher, and is believed to have harmed the effort for his immediate release.”
“I call upon the Assemblyman to retract the lies about his record, and come clean on his record of deliverance to the community. This election is about the issues that matter to the people of the district and about the community needs, in which everyone has a fair share,” Tischler added.
I was shocked last night to see that Moshe Tischler is using my husband’s situation and my family’s name to attempt to further his career and, worse, attack Assemblyman Dov Hikind.
My husband has been suffering in a Bolivian prison for 15 months. Since turning to Dov Hikind for his help, Dov has continually and consistently been there for my husband. He has introduced me to numerous elected officials and championed Jacob’s cause in every way imaginable, and he continues to do so to this very day.
It was unconscionable and dishonest of Moshe Tischler to act as if he is speaking for my family. He is not. I am speaking for my family and my family is grateful to have a friend like Dov Hikind who is genuine. The website that ran that disgusting statement from Moshe Tischler should immediately retract it; they aren’t helping me or my husband by attacking the one elected official in Brooklyn who continues to help us.
May my husband be released from prison immediately and may we all share a New Year of redemption and bruchas.
“I was surprised to learn that my call to Assemblyman Dov Hikind to retract his ad, is being twisted and taken out of context. I understand this is a sensitive issue that has to be dealt with great care. Therefore I’m saddened to see Dov take a suffering women and family and use them for his advantage.”
“Here we go again. Instead of retracting his ad lying about delivering for the community, Dov has the daring chutzpah, playing politics in order to save his career. In his world, all measures are legitimate to intimidate critics and delegitimize a democratic challenge.”
“The statement released yesterday was clear in its wording that Dov Hikind is lying about his achievement in bringing Jacob Ostreicher home, while he has yet to have been released. Nobody questioned his dedication to act on this matter of Hatzules nefushes, which is greatly appreciated.”
“It’s beyond chutzpah for Dov Hikind to accuse me, or use family members, in spreading lies and misinformation. Everyone with a Jewish heart understands the urgency of the matter, and the disgusting conduct of politicizing an issue that should unite us, rather than divide us. The voters in the district need better.”
