Addabbo speaks out against DSA Anti-Semitic question for City Council members

The Democratic Socialists of America’s (DSA) questionnaire asking members of the City Council to boycott a trip to Israel is not only wrong, it is Anti-Semitic,” said State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. “No matter your political leanings, for many, a visit to Israel is a visit to their family’s homeland, a holy site of their religion or to improve important relations. We do not ask people not to travel to China or other countries that suppress human rights. At a time like this, we should be working to foster better relations around the world. A credible public servant should not be judged by what countries they visit, but their genuine intent to help the people.
