Cuomo will meet with Netanyahu during jaunt to Israel

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo began a whirlwind visit to Israel on Sunday, pledging solidarity with Jews as the United States sees a surge in anti-Semitic incidents.

"With the recent rise of anti-Semitism, it is more important than ever before to demonstrate the connection between NY and Israel, our intertwined histories and our common futures, and spearhead new economic partnerships to bring our communities closer together", he said.

"The relationship between the Jewish community and the state of NY is built on mutual support and respect", Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said in remarks before a tour of Israel's Holocaust memorial. The governor also proclaimed Shimon Peres Day in New York State. "We're going to fortify the bonds between NY and the State of Israel, and NY and the Jewish community".

The expedition is paid for with state funds through a 2015 initiative for trade missions to Mexico, Canada, Italy, China, and Cuba.

In a visit to Israel on Sunday, Cuomo, who traveled to Israel this weekend in a gesture of solidarity spurred by acts of anti-Semitism in the United States, made his first comments following the toppling of headstones at a Jewish cemetery this weekend in Brooklyn.

Governor Cuomo will tour Yad Vashem with Dr. Robert Rozett, Director of the Libraries.

His state, he said, has "put together a special unit of the state police" to deal with the issue, and has "reacted aggressively with extraordinary measures, more aggressively than any other state in the nation" to the attacks.

Using the Hebrew word for "here I am", he added, "The second objective of this trip is 'Hineini.' I am here, I have been here before, and I will be here again".

He served as both prime minister and president of Israel when he was alive. It is built on love, and that will not change. Large fires start as small fires and we must have zero tolerance for any abuse or discrimination of any fellow human being.
