Jews slam Kucinich on Iran

Jewish leaders slammed Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich for denying that Iran’s president seeks to destroy Israel.Jewish leaders in Ohio, where Kucinich is a congressman, said Kucinich’s insistence that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad merely wants regime change in Israel, not death to its people and supporters, is dangerously credulous.”Unfortunately it goes beyond naive,” Alan Melamed, president of the Cleveland chapter of the American Jewish Committee, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Wednesday.Kucinich and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) were the only members of the U.S. House of Representatives to vote against a June 20 resolution condemning Iran’s president and asking the U.N. Security Council to move against Ahmadinejad for threats that violate the genocide conventions, the Plain Dealer said.Jewish leaders slammed Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich for denying that Iran’s president seeks to destroy Israel.
