This is not too surprising with regard to Kissinger's remarks. In spite of his Jewish background as a young refugee from Nazi Germany, Kissinger has generally been less well regarded by the pro-Israel community than, e.g., Alexander Haig.
It should be pointed out, however, that the discussion above dealt with the Soviet Union and its repression of Soviet Jewry. It wasn't until the Reagan administration that substantial progress was made there.
At the time, the JDL was doing a lot of un-quiet diplomacy against the Soviets, and that was probably Kissinger’s beef.
