Obama Blasted for Failure to Visit Israel


The Emergency Committee for Israel is waging a media blitz to alert voters to President Obama’s failure to visit Israel during his four years in office.

"He's quite a world traveler. But not to Israel. An oversight? Or an indication?" the pro-Israel organization wondered in a statement earlier today announcing a television advertisement highlighting Obama’s travel habits. "He's traveled to the Middle East multiple times—to accept an award in Saudi Arabia, to give a major speech in Cairo, to hold town hall meetings in Turkey—but never stopped to visit our closest ally in the region."

The 30-second spot asks viewers to consider why the president has voyaged around the world, but "hasn’t found time to visit our ally and friend Israel."

The advertisement will run in critical swing states and those that have large Jewish populations, including Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, and Washington D.C.

In addition to the television campaign, ECI published a full-page ad in 23 Jewish newspapers across the country. It highlights the concerns that Jewish leaders have with the administration’s often-aggressive stance towards Israeli officials.

After highlighting these fears, the ad asks: "What will they be saying after another four years of Obama?"
