WASHINGTON, DC - WASHINGTON, DC - Ira N. Forman, Executive Director of the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC), released the following statement:
Today, the Republican Jewish Coalitions (RJC) unleashed their latest in a series of deceptive attack ads aimed at Senator Barack Obama. The RJC appears to be genetically incapable of telling the truth. In this week’s ad they propagate the false claim that Obama wanted to personally meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
In this ad RJC also continues to spread the impression that Obama is against labeling Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. Obama is on record as a co-sponsor of the Iran Counter-Proliferation Act in March of 2007 that designates the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as terrorist organization.
The RJC is willing to say anything or impugn anyone’s character for partisan gain. Do these guys have any shame?
