NJDC: Ambassador’s comments ‘wrong and unfortunate’


After telling Commentary Magazine earlier today that it had "no comment" about the U.S. Ambassador to Belgium’s remarks about anti-Semitism, the National Jewish Democratic Council has decided to declare the remarks "wrong and unfortunate."

In an interview this evening, David Harris, the NJDC’s top official, told me that "Ambassador Gutman’s comments were wrong and unfortunate, and the White House was right to issue their immediate, tough statement on Saturday."

Harris, however, declined to say whether or not he believed Gutman should resign or be fired from his post.
