Assemblyman Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) has criticized Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman for his comments calling for Hofstra University President Susan Poser to resign.
Poser released a statement on Oct. 18 telling the Hofstra student body, “We mourn the loss of life in Israel and Gaza, which is deeply affecting many members of our community. There is a complex history and conflicting views about the causal underpinnings of the current crisis. This is one of the reasons that lasting peace in that part of the world has been so elusive and contested. But what is not contested is the tragic loss of life of innocent Israelis, Palestinians, and many others.”
