"The progressive NY mayor can take on the wealthy and fight racism, but
he pandered to the Israel lobby group AIPAC last night behind closed
doors. de Blasio called for a boycott of Saudi Airlines and a
continuation of the “transcendent” partnership between Cornell and an
Israeli university in NY. And he said his job description was to defend
Israel. “You have a friend and an ally at City Hall… When you need me to
stand by you in Washington or anywhere, I will answer the call and I
will answer it happily, because that’s my job.”"
