      Leftist Jews Oppose NYC Mayor Over Pro-Israel Stance

      New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has raised the ire of leftist Jews by expressing his support of Israel in a closed meeting with AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) last month.

      During the January 23 meeting, de Blasio told AIPAC members "City Hall will always be open to AIPAC. When you need me to stand by you in Washington or anywhere, I will answer the call and I’ll answer it happily ’cause that’s my job."
