Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met earlier today, with the New York Democrat pledging the state’s support for the nation’s continuing conflict against Hamas.

In brief remarks with Netanyahu, Cuomo said the group of New York officials he brought to the country is “unprecedented” — pointing to presence of both Democrats and Republicans in the delegation.

Cuomo is traveling with Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Co-Leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein.

“We want to stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel. We want to stand in solidarity with you,” Cuomo said. “The delegation that has come forward is unprecedented in some ways. We have both sides of the Legislature — the Assembly and the Senate. It’s a bipartisan delegation. We have business representatives, thought leaders — we all wanted to come as one in solidarity in unity to say to Israel, we understand the situation you’re in.”

He added: I speak for all New Yorkers when I say we stand in solidarity with Israel.
