Late last month, pro-Israeli lobbyist Patrick Clawson of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy floated the idea that a Pearl Harbor-style attack on America was the best way to get U.S. citizens on board with the idea of going to war with Iran. This week, the New York Police Department said that it is concerned about an Iranian threat to the city’s heavy Jewish population.

New York City is home to the largest Jewish population in any city outside of Israel with 1.5 million Jews spread throughout the metropolis.

Speaking at an anti-terrorism conference this week, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said that tensions between Israel and Iran could have deadly implications for the Big Apple if the Iranian-sponsored Hezbollah terrorist group sets its sites on the city’s Jewish population.

“We’ve been concerned about Iran for a while, and I think the history of those events throughout the world since January give us cause for concern,” Kelly said.

Early last month, reports broke of ties between the Israeli government and the NYPD when New York’s finest opened a new branch, in Israel.
