On Wednesday, Feb. 5, ads will appear in numerous New York City area Jewish media, castigating a list of 58 angry far left New York Jews. Why? Because those angry Jews publicly slammed and chastised newly-elected NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for daring to appear at a pro-Israel event, declaring his support for the sponsoring organization and for Israel.
Mayor Bill DeBlasio delivered an impassioned pro-Israel speech at a closed event hosted by the pro-Israel lobby group – AIPAC – in Manhattan on Jan. 3rd, Capital New York reports.
“There is a philosophical grounding to my belief in Israel and it is my belief, it is our obligation, to defend Israel, but it is also something that is elemental to being an American because there is no greater ally on earth, and that’s something we can say proudly,” Mayor de Blasio told a attendees. “Part of my job description is to be a defender of Israel,” the mayor continued. “As mayor, I’m committed not just maintaining an alliance but strengthening the alliance between Israel and New York and the United States.”
