Israeli Diplomat Briefs Clarke

Israels Deputy Consul General in New York Shlomi Kofman briefed Congresswoman Yvette Clarke on the battle with Gaza.

By COLlive Staff

Congresswoman Yvette Clarke met with Deputy Consul General of Israel Shlomi Kofman this week, and was updated on the current volatile situation in the Middle East region.

The Deputy Consul General expressed his country's gratitude to President Barack Obama and members of congress, like Congresswoman Clarke, for their strong support for Israels right to defend its population.

Also in attendance at the meeting was Mr. Leon Goldenberg, the executive board chairman of the Council of Jewish Organizations of Flatbush, and Lubavitcher Eli Slavin, Community Liaison for the congresswoman.

Upon meeting Slavin, Consul General Kofman expressed his pleasant surprise that he was again encountering a Lubavitcher in the halls of government, saying that he is often a guest at the home of Washington, DC Shliach Rabbi Levi Shemtov, Director of American Friends of Lubavitch.

Israel's Iron Dome Missile Defense System.
Israel's Iron Dome Missile Defense System was available because of responsible members of congress who voted for this kind of funding. Undoubtedly hundreds if not thousands of lives were saved.

LET US NO FORGET OUR FREINDS IN THE US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

Thank you Congresswoman Clake.

How about ?
How about having the Deputy Consul General sit down with Rabbi Shemtov (representing Lubavich International and Reb Eli Slavin representing Lubavich Local) and work out a cease-fire.

It works in Sydney.
Rabbi Levi Shem Tov = Rabbi Pinchos Feldman (father-in-law)

R' Eli Slavin = Rabbi Dovid Slavin (brother)

Feldman and Slavin work hand in glove, Bley Ayin Horoh

For your information:
FYI

Mr. Leon Goldenberg and others in Flatbush were 100% with Congressman Jeffries.
We now have TWO (plus) strong voices for Israel and community needs here in Brooklyn.

A better way
How about let the US congress watch CNN, Al Jazerra or what have you, and Israelis do their thing without worrying about what other think?

If anyone has to apologize for civilian deaths is gaza is hamas. Israel does not and should not.
