Brooklyn, NY - IDuring a Sabbath address in front of Syrian Jews on Saturday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged empathy from the congregation for displaced Syrian Muslims, telling them that the refugees are akin to the Jews fleeing the Nazis.

NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1Q8myuu) reports that, speaking before Orthodox worshippers at Congregation Shaare Zion in Brooklyn, de Blasio said, “I know this community understands deeply the pain of any family that must leave a homeland they love because they were forced away by violence and discrimination.”

“When it comes to saving children and families from one of the greatest crises of our times, I remind people to look at history,” de Blasio stated.

Not everyone in attendance, however, agreed with the mayor—-including Brooklyn resident Judy Zarug.

“I don’t think it’s a fair comparison . . . The Jews never had a history of being destructive,” Zarug said.

Yup. Great comparison. What a buffoon DeBlasio is. As my friend Nathan predicted, NY will become like every other big city because the minority voters will always vote for the candidate who promises the most freebies.

How ignorant and disgusting is that foolish trash that is called a Mayor. He should be tar & feathered and sent home to his wife. There are just no words to describe how dumb this two legged creature is.

Did Syrian Jews immigrate for better economic opportunities or flee Syrian persecution against them?

Well, there's one kinda big difference there.

Jews fleeing Naziism didn't have some within the group who were intending to commit terrorist acts in the countries they were fleeing to.

Clearly the brain of this Mayor has ceased functioning. Seems some Muslim had his brain removed -or just never had a functioning brain.

What a retarded comparison. The Syrian Jews were successful law abiding citizens who were discriminated against only because of religion. Any country they went into only had what to gain by tbeir amazing business accumen. What can these Syrian degenerates offer society? Except maybe a few more suicide bombers

"Jews fleeing Nazism didnt have some within intending to commit terrorist act" The British in Palestine and most locals will disagree with you. .

In Brooklyn much more Yidden collect Welfare,Food Stamps,Section 8 etc than the Muslims. You not only "missed some history" but you have no clue of current events in the USA.

Is the esteemed mayor so ignorant of American History that he doesn't know that the U.S,. authorities during the World war II era joined the rest of the civilized world in refusing to allow Jewish refugees to gain entrance to their country? The hapless Jews attempting to escape Nazi tyranny were accused of actually being Nazi collaborators despite the fact that American Jews have always given their all in support of America and its values.

No Arab countries are showing any sympathy towards their coreligionists. Why should the U.S. show more mercy to the Syrians than their brethren do? What positive contribution to America have Syrian Muslims ever made to American society?

"The Syrian Jews were successful law abiding citizens" - I know someone of my parents' generation who when told about the wealth of certain people would say "Behind every great fortune is a great crime"

As long as Yidden continue to back these liberal, socialist, communists, we will continue to have morons like Obama, DeBlasio and Clinton as elected leaders. Jew from wherever they have immigrated to whatever country, Jews have been productive, law abiding (for the vast majority) citizens willing to contribute to society. We are not terrorists intent on destroying social values or killing people.

I think he was misquoted. What he meant to say is that the fleeing Syrians are analogous to Nazis fleeing Germany after the Holocaust.

What do these liberals do with the fact that 10% of the kids coming will be radicalized before they're 20? And 10,000 today is 100,000 in twenty years, and so on. And what is comrade DeBlasio doing about the mosques that are radicalizing these kids? In Paris they closed down four last week. Wanna guess how many were closed down in the USA? Hint, it's one digit and starts with zero
