New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, on a visit to Israel's Holocaust memorial, pledged on Sunday to take action against antisemitic acts in the US amid reports of fresh Jewish cemetery vandalism in Brooklyn.

"We must have zero tolerance for any abuse or discrimination of any fellow human being," Cuomo said at the end of a tour at the 'Yad Vashem' museum in Jerusalem.

"It is disgusting, it is reprehensible, it violates every tenant of the New York state tradition," he said.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, who accompanied the governor, said: "Jews must be safe wherever they are, wherever they are in the world, especially and specifically in the United States."

Cuomo's visit came only hours after reports of another act of vandalism at a Jewish cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.
