Koch's last wish honors slain Jew Daniel Pearl

Tortured and murdered in 2002 by Muslim radicals

by Clifford F. Thies

Ed Koch's grave marker:
Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.

My father is Jewish. My mother is Jewish. I am Jewish. Daniel
The first is the Great Shema, inscribed above the doorway to all Synagogues, found originally in Deuteronomy 6:4, and affirmed by Jesus as the Greatest Commandment Mark 12:29.

The second is the last thing said by Daniel Pearl, following which his throat was slit and his head severed from his body by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and shown in a video clip, "The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, the Jew Daniel Pearl."

If he had wanted to honor Pearl, perhaps he could have NOT supported the party that is supporting those who murdered him? Koch and his fellow hypocrites are, and remain, putzes.

you are correct, once again. But remember Koch endorsed Bush, McCain and Romney.

Hi Eric! Urhm, but...

And... your point being?

Bush, sure. As far as that went. But McCain and Romney? Well, fine. Okay, that was the only choices, at that point, any of us had. And I did, actually, vote for Romney (but never would or could for McCain).

*frustrated* But I will give him that... I guess I just don't like it. My problem, not his. True enough, to a degree.
