A leading Florida politician criticized an ad by a Republican Jewish group attacking Howard Dean’s views on Israel. In a half-page ad appearing in the Palm Beach Jewish Journal, Wahid Mahmood, a Bangladeshi-born Muslim who is chairman of the Palm Beach County’s Democratic Party, said the Republican Jewish Coalition’s recent ad “in characteristically Republican right-wing extremist fashion, takes Dr. Dean’s comments out of context to mislead our citizens about the Democratic Party’s commitment to Israel.”
