Edward I. Koch
December 12, 1924–February 1, 2013
Mayor of the City of New York 1978-1989
"My mother is Jewish, my father is Jewish, I am Jewish."
(Daniel Pearl, 2002, just before he was beheaded by a Muslim terrorist.)
HEAR, O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE
He was fiercely proud of his Jewish faith. He fiercely defended the City of New York, and he fiercely loved its people. Above all, he loved his country, the United States of America, in whose armed forces he served in World War II.
