  1. Charlie Hall says:

    The Mayor of New York City is not supposed to have a foreign policy.

  2. It's sad that people care about the Mayor of NYC's views on foreign policy.

  3. Janis Saxon says:

    Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel! So what's your point?

  4. Janis Saxon says:

    He's allowed an opinion, for he has nothing to do with foreign policy . Are you a Palestinian Sympathizer ?

  5. Everybody should concur with the Jews' contention that our people's capitol is and always has been Jerusalem. Do you see that kind of thinking as dangerous or controversial?

  6. I see it as irrelevant. It is even irrelevant when Congress says so. Year after year everybody says it in Democratic and Republican administrations and no one makes it happen. So it is like saying I favor motherhood and apple pie.

  7. Charlie Hall says:

    "So what's your point?"

    It is absolutely, totally, completely irrelevant to the lives of New Yorkers. There is absolutely no practical impact that a NYC Mayor's opinion on Jerusalem would have. The courts have consistently slapped down attempts by municipalities and states in the US to conduct foreign policies that differ from that coming out of Washington (and that is indeed as it should be). This is shameless pandering of the worst kind.

    I'd still vote for her over Weiner, though. In fact, in many other respects, I like Quinn. Until now she has mostly avoided this kind of pandering.

    The US is one of a tiny number of countries with any diplomatic presence in Jerusalem at all. http://www.science.co.il/embassies.asp

  9. Gil Gilman says:

    A stated opinion is not foreign policy. Perhaps we have arrived at a point where even a public stated opinion is endangering the Obama administration's stated opinions which actually have the potential force of becoming foreign policy.

  10. Gil Gilman says:

    Nephtuli Taubenfeld, Ms. Quinn is not mayor of New York, merely a hopeful, and as such has a right to her opinions. For the record, it matters to me what a person's expressed viewpoints are to the degree that they have the potential for influencing others.
