An Open Letter to Honorable Rudolph Giuliani

 

Rabbi Shea Hecht
About the Author

An Open Letter to the World's Greatest Mayor
The Honorable Rudolf W. Giuliani

My Dear Mayor,

I write this letter to express my support of your candidacy for the office of the President of the United States.

From 1993 through the year 2001 and beyond, I had the opportunity to work closely with you and your administration. As a leader of my respective community, there were many issues for which I found myself at City Hall attending meetings and rallies. I was impressed with your integrity and work ethic.

With my appointment as a commissioner of Human Rights I had the opportunity to work with you more often and it was then that I saw even more clearly your commitment to human rights, safety and equality for all.

Mayor Giuliani, you are clearly a strong fighter of terrorism. When on September 11th, 2001, America suffered the worst attack in its history, I was not the only New Yorker who felt safer and stronger knowing that you were there at the helm to lead the city through this tough period. I remember with pride, your efforts during those uncertain days when - like a true leader - you were there in the forefront every single day taking charge and giving your all 24/7.  I remember clearly standing at Ground Zero with other clergy with you and President Bush the Friday following the attack, saying prayers for the safety of our country.

Another reason why I support your bid for presidency is because of your unwavering solidarity of the only democratic state in the Middle East - Israel.

In 1995, the United Nations held a gala concert at Lincoln Center in NYC. Observing Yasir Arafat entering the hall, you ordered that the PLO leader be told to leave. It was reported, that when you were accused of overstepping your role by pursuing your own foreign policy, you retorted, "I would not invite Yasir Arafat to anything, anywhere, anytime. I don't forget," referring to the PLO's 1986 murder of American Leon Klinghoffer. You made it clear that terrorists weren't invited, even if they considered themselves leaders of a country. For that I applaud you. Through that you earned not only my respect, but the respect of all peace loving people.

Following the attacks on 9/11, when a Saudi prince gave the city a relief check for $10 million, and then said U.S. policies were partly to blame for the World Trade Center attack you returned his donation. Whatta Mayor! Only in New York. Your refusal of the millions from the Saudi prince proved that you can't be bought and that your moral compass rings true in contrast to other's moral confusion.

Mayor Giuliani, in 2002, you wrote a number one best-seller, Leadership, which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. I'm not shocked that the book sold so well. It did because everyone knew that the author didn't just write a book about the subject of leadership. They knew that the author, the great Mayor of New York City, was a great example of leadership.

For this upcoming presidential election, you mapped out your goals in your 12 Commitments to the American People. These clearly defined goals define who you are - a man who thinks clearly and knows what he wants to accomplish and how to get there.

You call upon the American people to support your bid for president of the greatest country in the world. I for one support you for you're a man of your word in a world where such men are sorely needed. In this world where terrorism remains the number one threat, you are the best person to fight it.

Looking forward to being greeted by you and your administration in the White House in January, 09.

Sincerely,

Your friend and supporter

Shea Hecht
