JNS.org – Mario Cuomo, a former three-term Democratic governor of New York who Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called a strong supporter of Israel, died on Thursday at age 82.

Cuomo, the father of current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, held the gubernatorial office from 1983-1994 and visited Israel during his first year in the role.

“I remember how strongly, firmly and clearly Gov. Cuomo, Mario Cuomo, stood with Israel at the time,” Netanyahu said last summer when Andrew Cuomo visited Israel on a solidarity mission, according to The Jewish Press.
