Governor Andrew Cuomo and other state lawmakers have completed a trip to Israel.

During the trip, Cuomo met with former Israeli President Shimon Peres and visited one of those tunnels built by Hamas that leads from Gaza.

The trip was designed to show support for Israel.

“Your enemy, at the end of the day, is our enemy because they’re fighting you because of what you represent and you represent democracy,” Cuomo told Israeli officials.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and State Senate co-leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein were also on the trip.
