Cuomo Announces New York-Israel Commission

Cuomo Announces New York-Israel Commission”

New York, along with much of the USA, has seen a rise in anti-Semitic incidents of late, including a Staten Island Jewish Community Center bomb threat and a vandalized Jewish cemetery in Rochester.

Cuomo's one-day trip included visits at the Western Wall and Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial.

"New York State by its definition is a celebration of diversity, it accepts all who believe in the spirit of inclusion, and who live by discrimination of none". The United States was a rare island of safety.

"Israel is very advanced when it comes to providing security and there's a lot that NY can learn from them in that regard", Cuomo said Saturday following a round-table discussion with Jewish leaders at the Park East Synagogue on 67th Street.

"To the people of Israel, I say that these acts of anti-Semitism will not be tolerated", he added.

" The second objective of this trip is 'Hineini, ' I am here, I have been here before, and I will be here again", he added.

Cuomo's trip is an effort to attract worldwide business investment. "We can never, ever, let that change", Rivlin says.

Amid the criticism, Trump spoke out against anti-Semitic incidents and also condemned a seemingly racially motivated killing of an Indian man in his maiden speech to Congress last week.

"The fact that so many Christians and Muslims, came to aid the Jewish communities sends the clearest message against racism and hatred", he said.
