Today Michael Bloomberg is a Mensch

Michael Bloomberg has done any number of dubious things whether it be concerning gun control or restrictions on the sale of soda.

But today Bloomberg did a hell of a thing. He defied the Obama Administration's ban on air travel to Israel by taking an El Al flight to Tel Aviv.

The former New York City Mayor said, "The flight restrictions are a mistake that hands Hamas an undeserved victory and should be lifted immediately."

Bloomberg has his moments. This reminds me of when he visited Jerusalem in 2003 and rode a bus that had been attacked by a suicide bomber.

Say what you will about Bloomberg. Today he was a mensch.
