Rose Hamid, a 56-year-old flight attendant, was removed from Donald Trump's rally Friday night while silently protesting, one of several disruptions to occur during the Republican presidential candidate's event.
Hamid, who wore a shirt reading “Salam I Come In Peace” and a yellow 'Muslim' star, a reference to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany, told CNN later that she attended the event with peaceful intentions. 'I have this sincere belief that if people get to know each other, one on one, that they'll stop being afraid of each other and we'll be able to get rid of all this hate in the world, literally,' Hamid told CNN's Don Lemon. 'So that was really my goal, was to let people see that Muslims are not that scary.'
