Statement from Former Congressman Tom Suozzi on Pilip’s Recent Baseless Attack: “I Condemn All Anti-Semitism.”
Glen Cove, NY – Today Former Congressman Tom Suozzi issued the following statement in respond to Mazi Pilip’s recent baseless attack:
“I condemn all anti-Semitism. I am unequivocally pro-Israel. My voting record reflects both.
The Jewish World endorsed my candidacy, saying, ‘Suozzi’s support for Israel has been admirably strong and consistent, evidence of a deep personal commitment to the Jewish State… it is extremely important to bolster the pro-Israel, centrist majority among House Democrats. Having Tom Suozzi on Israel’s side in the halls of Congress will help offset the increasing influence of extreme left-wing progressives who are hostile to Israel and its interests. At the same time, we know that he will support all efforts to fight the growing antisemitism in this country.’
I am not aware of the comments referenced by my opponent, but if I find them to be anti-Semitic, I will condemn them as I have throughout my public life.
My opponent’s attempts to distract from her basement campaign in which she has refused to present herself to the press or the public is cheap and denigrates our common cause to combat anti-Semitism and support Israel.”
