Claim: Israel is Obama’s Punching Bag

Dec 16, 2011 No Comments by

The Emergency Committee for Israel published a full-page ad in five newspapers that calls on the Obama administration to stop treating Israel like a punching bag. The ad appears in the New York Times, the Miami Herald, the Palm Beach Post, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and Variety.

It can be viewed at:

The ad details the past month of Obama administration attacks on Israel: President Obama caught trashing the Israeli prime minister at the G20 summit; Defense Secretary Leon Panetta blaming Israel for the failure of talks with the Palestinians; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comparing Israel to Iran; and the U.S. ambassador to Belgium declaring that Muslim anti-Semitism is Israel’s fault.

ECI chair William Kristol said: “The Obama administration has been using Israel as a punching bag. The pro-Israel wing of the pro-Israel community is punching back.”
