Less than two weeks before the first official Republican poll of the presidential primary season, right-wing front-runner Newt Gingrich slammed Iowa candidate-to-beat Ron Paul Thursday for abandoning Israel to Iran’s mercies.

Paul, said Gingrich, “dismisses the danger of an Iranian nuclear weapon and seems to be indifferent to the idea that Israel could be wiped out.”

Speaking on a conservative radio talk show Thursday morning, Gingrich accused Paul of being “a guy who basically says, if the United States were only nice, it wouldn’t have had 9/11. He doesn’t want to blame the bad guys.”

“I think the key to his volunteer base is people who want to legalize drugs,” said the former speaker of the House, and recent Republican front-runner.
