I think its time politicians like this pack their shit up and move to the country they care about more. I am sick and tired of politicians telling us what they are going to do for other countries (not just Israel) instead of telling us what they are going to do for our country. They should tell us what they are going to do about America 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. We have our own problems for him to go to another country and play dress up to grovel for votes. Its sad when our politicians have to stoop to this level.

State Sen. David Storobin's campaign shared this image of the incumbent, who's in the middle of a trip to Israel, "with General Shmulik Olansky (center), a 3-star general in charge of the Golan Heights Armor Division, directly on the Syrian border in a hostile region. The Senator is on an official state visit approved by the Defense Minister of Israel. To the right is the Senator's Chief of Staff, Paul Gullo."
"Israel shares a border and a region with multiple dangerous countries," Storobin said in a statement. "Thank G-d for the brave men and women in the Israeli armed services that stare down this danger to protect Israel every day."
Storobin, per his campaign, also met yesterday with Minister of Culture Limor Livnat to discuss "Storobinâ€™s call for the International Olympic Committee to pay tribute to the Israeli athletes killed at the 1972 Games."
Although that didn't happen -- despite many requests from many people -- Storobin "pledges to keep pushing the Committee to hold a moment of silence for the slain Israelis before the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro."
Storobin's not the only city pol making a grand tour of Israel -- as we've noted here before, City Councilman Dan Halloran is also there right now, meeting with (and receiving endorsements from) an array of government officials.
Halloran is up against state Assemblywoman Grace Meng in the NY-6 Congressional race, while Storobin is battling former Councilman Simcha Felder in the new state Senate "super-Jewish" district in Brooklyn.
