Local Jewish leaders call for support of Israel

Local Jewish officials are joining President Barack Obama in the call for more support of Israel amid mounting tensions in the Middle East.

Brooklyn Congressman Bob Turner (R-District 9) and Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-District 48) joined numerous elected officials in Crown Heights yesterday to condemn growing pressure to create a two-state solution between Iran and Israel.

At the meeting, a possible boycott of all Israeli products was also discussed. Some members of the Park Slope Co-op believe the economic pressure against Israel will end a segregated political system against Palestinians.
