Sal F. Albanese, a Democratic candidate for Mayor of New York City and former New York City Council member, says that anti-Semitism must be eradicated.

Albanese, who is very close to the New York Jewish community, spoke to Arutz Sheva during a special conference in the city.

“We’re going to have zero tolerance for anti-Semitism or any prejudice against any group,” he stated. “New York City has a tremendous amount of people from different countries, so anti-Semitism or anti-anything will not be tolerated under my administration.

“We’re going to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law and we’ll educate people in our schools that anti-Semitism is an ugly thing,” said Albanese. “We have to work with our children to make sure that they realize that we’re all the same and no group should be discriminated against.”
