The Republican Jewish Coalition’s weekly E-Newsletter just arrived – the group is keeping up its attacks on Democrats for not criticizing Rep. John Dingell for saying “I don’t take sides for or against Hezbollah or for or against Israel.” Click here for the National Jewish Democratic Council response to the Dingell controversy – the NJDC says Republicans are taking his words out of context (also read Dingell’s letter to Rush Limbaugh, which says the same thing). It turns out Dingell also said this during the interview:

“Now, I condemn Hezbollah as does everybody else, for the violence, but I think if we’ve got to talk to them and if we don’t - if we don’t get ourselves in a position where we can talk to both sides and bring both sides together, the killing and the blood letting is going to continue.”
