New York Governor Andrew Cuomo calls the Monsey stabbing rampage “an act of domestic terrorism,” adding that the state stands “in solidarity with all members of the Jewish community.”
“This is an act of terrorism. I think these are domestic terrorists. They are trying to inflict fear,” he tells reporters.
Visiting the site of the attack, Cuomo adds: “We are going to enforce the laws and make sure acts like this do not happen — and if they happen, they are punished to the fullest extent of the law.”
