The American Jewish Congress decries Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis’s egotistical claim to be in the same position as Israel was in the 6 Day War on account of her being a Republican from Staten Island.

We would remind the Assemblywoman that she is a Republican from not only the most pro-Trump borough of the city, but also the most pro-Trump area of the entire state. How does this possibly compare to the nascent Jewish state being surrounded on  all sides by a numerically and qualitatively superior enemy set on their utter destruction?

The Israel Defense Forces emerged victorious and significantly expanded the borders of the Jewish State due to excellent strategy and resolve. Malliotakis has not demonstrated the wherewithal to participate in a Zoom session cogently.  

We would encourage the Assemblywoman to learn more from history before making such unfortunate statements again.
