NY Mayor To Visit Israel To Honor Father

I forgot to post about this, but New York Mayor Bloomberg is either going to be visiting Israel fairly soon, or is actually in Israel checking out the sites as I type.

(New York Daily News) Mayor Bloomberg will travel to Israel next week to announce that a new station of the Israeli emergency medical service in Jerusalem will be named after his late father, City Hall said yesterday.

The facility for Magen David Adom, the country's national emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank service, will be named the William H. Bloomberg MDA Jerusalem Regional Station.

Speaking of Magen David Adom, these guys have done an excellent job during the Lebanon war, helping the injured in northern towns such as Haifa, not an easy thing to during a time of crisis.

With more politicians visiting Israel, especially presidential hopefuls, Americans (and westerners) will be encouraged to not only visit Israel, but get to understand the culture a little bit better as a whole.

Update (2/22): It looks like Bloomberg has arrived.
