RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn is asking the state attorney general to create a task force to investigate anti-Semitism in Rockland County after a video was shown to students that Hikind said shows Jews in a negative light, according to lohud.com.

The call for an investigation was quickly countered by Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski of New City, who says that while anti-Semitism should be fought at all costs, Hikind's statements were outrageous and the issue has been resolved, said lohud.com.

The Clarkstown schools superintendent and Clarkstown South High School principal have apologized for showing the video. Rockland County Executive Ed Day was also unhappy with Hikind's comments, calling them "an outrage," added lohud.com.
