NYDAILYNEWS — Mayor Bloomberg Sunday defended the controversial prisoner swap that brought Israeli solider Gilad Shalit home.
“I just know that the government of Israel had to make a decision and they didn’t walk away from the decision, they made one, and that’s what governing is all about,” Bloomberg told a group of reporters in Jerusalem.
The mayor discussed the deal after a visit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following a dedication of a first aid station.
