The recent attack in Paris on a kosher market has raised concern about their security amongst the Jews of France. Former Mayor of New York City Giuliani has similar concerns about security for New York City and has expressed them to present Mayor Bill de Blasio.
With an estimated 600,000 Muslims and over 165 mosques in the Five Boroughs making Islam the third largest religion, his concern is a large one indeed.
Speaking on Fox News, he was directly critical of the change in policy instituted by his successor. “The mayor of New York, one of the first things he did was he pulled all of the police out of the mosques. Well, you know who put the police in the mosques? I did. You know who increased the number of police in the mosques? Kelly and Bloomberg,” Mr. Giuliani told host Greta Van Susteren. “And why did I do it? Because the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993 was organized in a mosque. The blind sheikh, who went to jail for a hundred years, was planning to blow up our subways in a mosque.”
“I think it is becoming more difficult for us,” he said. “I think we have to expect this is going to happen in the United States, I hate to say that.”
