By October 8, 2023Statements

The following statement is from NYSYR Chairman Peter Giunta regarding Hamas’ unprovoked and heinous attacks against Israel:

“Tonight, our entire Association stands in solidarity with the people of the free nation of Israel as they mourn the lives lost during the unprovoked and heinous attacks at the hands of depraved Hamas terrorists. The images of innocent women and children being massacred, stripped naked, and dragged through the street are jarring — but it is also important for all to see.

We call on our government leaders at every level to reaffirm their support of the Israeli people and their existence. Moreover, we especially call on New York Democrats to unequivocally condemn today’s atrocities and call out those within their ranks who are supporting or plan to participate in tomorrow’s disgusting celebration by the Democratic Socialists in New York City.”
