A new ad slated to start airing this weekend targets Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for opposing Iran sanctions:

The ad is being sponsored by the Emergency Committee for Israel.

"The ad contrasts Rep. Wasserman Schultz's very public pro-Israel rhetoric and tough talk on Iran with her behind the scenes obstruction of a new bipartisan Iran sanctions bill," ECI says in a press release accompanying the release of the ad.

"The spot will air multiple times on Sunday political shows in South Florida and will run through next week on cable news and during sports events."

ECI executive director Noah Pollak says in a statement, "This ad highlights the contradiction between Rep. Wasserman-Schultz's very public pronouncements of support for Israel and her behind the scenes campaign to stymie bipartisan Iran sanctions on behalf of President Obama. As her constituents find out the truth, we hope they will demand a more responsible approach on this important issue."

Bill Kristol is a board member of ECI.
