I will not tolerate anti-Semitism, says New York City mayor

De Blasio coupled his “tough love” comments on the Jewish community with an assertion of no tolerance against anti-Semitism.

“I also will not tolerate any anti-Semitism ever. For decades I’ve made it my business to stand up for the Jewish community and people know that.

“My message was to all communities and that was written in black and white.

“I understand the power of words. I’m not going to let that power, that concern over words overcome the value of human life.

“Members of the Jewish community were putting each other in danger, they were putting our police officers in danger.

“If I see it in any other community [acting this way], I’ll call that out equally,” he adds.
