New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio jumped on a plane last month to make a 48-hour solidarity trip to Israel amid the wave of Palestinian knife, car and shooting attacks.

Obviously he is dramatically different than Bloomberg, [Ed] Koch and [Rudolph] Giuliani. They have totally different personalities.

He insisted that de Blasio remains "very popular in the Jewish community - across the board, including the Orthodox."Read full article at thejewishweek.com
