He use to be Mayor of New York City, the cith with the largest Jewish population in the world. And he has just expressed himself for the New Year of 2003, one in which the Israeli are publicly threatening to 'ethnic cleanse' Palestinians and the world faces an American/Israeli war to remake and control the Middle East. Here one has a great example of what is so wrong with the USA these days:
New Year's Resolutions by the former Mayor of New York City Ed Koch:
"Now to my personal New Year’s resolutions. I will avoid France as a place to vacation. France leads those countries in the Security Council who are the enemies of the State of Israel. So too is Mexico, joining as a
consistent supporter of resolutions unfairly denouncing Israel at the U.N.
I will not support National Public Radio in any way. NPR’s reporters and
management delight in unfairly attacking Israel.
I will no longer lend financial support to New York’s Channel Thirteen,
public television station. That station recently showed a documentary that was blatantly biased against Israel and has refused to acknowledge the bias
or to try to correct it.
I will not watch ABC’s World News Tonight anchored by Peter Jennings. For many years, Jennings has specialized in vicious and unfair portrayals of Israel intended to injure the Jewish state and lionize Palestinians. BBC News is horrifically anti-Israel and I will shun it completely. Susan Sontag will occupy the Ninth Circle of Hell for her outrageous assaults on Israel. I will no longer read her works. Regrettably, there are many others whom I could include on this list, but I
will leave that for another day."
