RIP. A man who served this country well in World War II.
Good man and I loved his sense of humor. RIP Mayor.
I loved Koch for saying that a Jew who voted for Jesse Jackson would have to have his head examined. I regret that he endorsed Obama, for reelection and recently hid behind the lame excuse that he didn’t think Obama would turn on Israel as quickly after the election as he did. Why do Jews support politicans who promise to put them in the ovens next year instead of this year?
And yet for all the good he did, Koch is a great example of what frustrates conservatives so much about “conservative” Democrats. Koch knew how important supporting Israel is and fighting terror is but he still endorsed Obama, naively hoping that Obama “learned his lesson.” He kept supporting Obama and others who he should have known were going to continue to oppose everything he held important.
“Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.”
That’s Deuteronomy 6:4.
The prayer is known as the Shema and is pronounced Sh’ma.
In Hebrew: Shema Yisrael Adonai eloheinu Adonai ehad
Traditionally, Jews recite the Sh’ma in Hebrew in the morning, before bedtime, and as their last words.
God Bless Mayor Koch. He was one of the good guys.
The last decent democrat goes to the grave.
I am Daniel Pearl. We all are Daniel Pearl.
Brings tears to my eyes.
He was a horrible, awful, pro-abortion liberal, but he had some redeeming qualities. He was in the front pew at Mass the week after Saint Patrick’s and Cardinal O’Connor were attacked by ActUp. I have said a Hail Mary for him. R.I.P.
Ran the city well, was able to listen. God Bless the Mayor.
When Mayor Koch was asked a question he answered it; straight, to the point and minus the annoying political spin of the typical rat politician.
