Sept. 10 New York City Primary Endorsements (Part II)

New York City Council

24th Council District in Queens
(St. Albans, Hollis, Cambria Heights, parts of Jamaica and Rosedale):

We urge Democratic voters in the 24th Council District to vote for Rory Lanceman. He has expressed strong support for legislation requiring reasonable accommodation to religious needs in such relatively new problem areas as the public display of mezuzahs and the construction of sukkahs and has represented individuals who faced these and related problems.

35th Council District in Brooklyn
(Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant):

In the 35th City Council District in Brooklyn we endorse Olanike Alabi to replace the term-limited Letitia James. Ms. Alabi is a well-known and respected advocate for housing and other quality of life issues in the area. During her recent visit to The Jewish Press she displayed a deep knowledge of the pressing problems facing the 35th District that will have to be faced in the coming years. Her passion for resolving problems is impressive, as is her knowledge of how the City Council works. She has earned the strong support of the Jewish community in Crown Heights.

44th Council District in Brooklyn
(Bensonhurst, Boro Park, Flatbush):

We support David Greenfield in the 44th District. In the three and a half years since his election to the Council, Mr. Greenfield has emerged as a premier spokesman on a broad range of Jewish issues. He is respected by his colleagues for his mastery of the New York City budgetary process, and has developed a reputation as a serious legislator focused on finding real solutions to problems rather than making grandiose statements on public issues that bear little relationship to the legislative process.

With $2 billion on hand the Islamic State is an extremely well-funded terrorist group that may pose a major international crisis for the U.S. and the world. Learn about their rise to power and the toll they’ve taken thus far.

In the recent Gaza war and its aftermath, we saw a totally illogical reaction from the world.

A., a teacher: “I do not know a single Gazan who is pro-Hamas at the moment, except for those on its payroll.”

Is the global community clear in its response to these extremist groups?

Like our fabled character, Don Quixote, President Obama has constantly spawned his own reality.

Boroujerdi was informed that “the pressures and tortures will increase until he has been destroyed.”

Fatah: Hamas stole relief aid for Gaza and distributed it amongst its followers in mosques.

Defeating IS requires bombing its strongholds and recognizing the violent nature of Islam.

Abbas again used the UN to attack Israel, distort history, and undermine prospects for peace.

Particularly galling was the complaint by one Jo Anne Simon about Judge Dear’s supposed “mobilizing on behalf of apartheid and his insensitivity to minority communities.”

Whatever one has to say about Iran, it does have clout in the Middle East and the Gulf region and could play a key role in addressing the ISIS threat.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

His many articles on education showed great insight into the problems facing Jewish teachers in a changing student environment.
