Andrew Giuliani claimed on Twitter that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio prohibited the New York Police Department from protecting pro-Israel demonstrators in Times Square amid growing incidents of antisemitic attacks in the city.

"We have been told by NYPD that they have been told by the @NYCMayor Office not to protect the pro-Israel rally in Times Square @3." wrote Giuliani on Sunday. "We will not be intimidated, we will not back down and we will ALWAYS STAND with our Israeli brothers and sisters! Rally ON!"

Lone Conservative founder Kassy Dillon tweeted: "It [the rally] was supposed to be a lot bigger but the mayor put immense pressure on Jewish community leaders and a few groups helping organize cancelled but there are still others showing up."

Photos show Giuliani, son of former President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, addressing the crowd in Times Square. He announced on May 18 that he will be running in the 2022 New York gubernatorial election.

Antisemitic attacks have been on the rise in recent weeks, with the most recent in the city happening on Thursday when Joseph Borgen was attacked on the way to another pro-Israel demonstration. One of the suspects, 23-year-old Waseem Awawdeh, was arrested and charged over the beating. He has since been released.

"I turned around to try to figure out what was going on and the next thing I knew I was surrounded by a whole crowd of people who proceeded to physically attack me, beat me, kick me, punch me, hit me with crutches, hit me with flag poles,' Borgen told the Daily Mail on Friday.
