Question: [inaudible] calling for uniformed police officers not to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade?

Mayor: I believe that uniformed city workers have a right to participate if they choose to, and I respect that right. Yes?

[skip]

Question: Just to follow up on Emily’s question, I think that there’s a difference between allowing city workers on their own personal time to march in a parade and having them show up in uniform with signs saying ‘City of New York Police Department.’ So if we have a little bit more about your thinking on that, and are you planning to attend the parade?

Mayor: I’ve said what I think. I respect the right of our City workers to march in uniform – period. And no, I am not planning on marching in the parade, I haven’t in the past in my capacity as an elected official. I will be participating in a number of other events to honor the Irish heritage of this city and the contributions of Irish Americans. But I simply disagree with the organizers of that parade in their exclusion of some individuals in this city. Thanks – OK, go ahead.

De Blasio praises Israel at closed-door AIPAC event1 -

"There is a philosophical grounding to my belief in Israel and it is my belief, it is our obligation, to defend Israel, but it is also something that is elemental to being an American because there is no greater ally on earth, and that’s something we can say proudly,"—Bill de Blasio.
