de Blasio Press Conference

Jesus. Let him go live in Gaza for a week:

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio gave a heartfelt speech praising Israel at a private gala event hosted by AIPAC at the Hilton hotel in midtown Manhattan Thursday night, the local website Capital New York reported.

According to an edited audio recording obtained by the site (below), de Blasio said that “part of his job description is to defend Israel” and that it is “elemental to being an American, because there is no greater ally on earth, and that’s something we can say proudly.”

The Israel lobby’s event was closed to journalists and the speech did not appear on the mayor’s public schedule, arousing suspicion and making the event all the more intriguing. A reporter with Capital who tried to get into the event was escorted out by security.

De Blasio said in his speech that he had visited Israel three times, most recently with his wife and son, and that he was especially moved by visiting Sderot, on the border with the Gaza Strip and often the target of rocket attacks.

“You can’t have an experience like that and not feel solidarity with the people of Israel and know that they’re on the front line of fighting against so many challenges.”

  1. Do you suppose that DeBlasio knows that Gaza is the largest open air prison that the world has ever seen? He probably doesn’t care. If he did care and said something about it all of that AIPAC money would stop flowing in his direction. Plus he probably got lots of pro-Zionist votes and money in his election. But let’s talk about DeBlsio the creature of Clinton. It sure is funny that he’s gone out of his way to pick a fight with Gov. Cuomo over pre-K funding? Then again Cuomo has plans to run against Hillary. So maybe DeBlasio has been assigned by Hillary the task of strangling Cuomo’s campaign in its crib? One more chump crossed off the hit list.

  2. DeBlasio’s a populist? Maybe. A Progressive? Perhaps. A politician? Most definitely. Most of the Jewish community agree with his campaign goals, but the first order of business for any New York mayor is obeisance to the State of Israel.
