The latest print ad from the Emergency Committee for Israel highlights liberal critics of President Obama's stance toward Israel.

"Today the Emergency Committee for Israel published a full-page ad in 23 Jewish newspapers across America highlighting liberal criticism of President Obama's Israel record," an ECI press release reads. Relying on the words of prominent figures such as Abe Foxman and Martin Indyk, the ad details Obama's deeply troubled relationship with the pro-Israel community over the last three years, and the mounting danger to Israel posed by an Iranian regime that is closer than ever to obtaining a nuclear weapon."

Here's the ad:

In a statement, ECI executive director explains the ad--and Obama's misguided Israel policies. "President Obama has been trying to have it both ways -- pursuing policies that weaken the U.S.-Israel alliance while boasting on the campaign trail that he is the most pro-Israel president since Truman," says Pollak. "As the Obama campaign attempts to mislead about the president's record, it is important that American Jews understand what many prominent liberals are now conceding -- this president's approach to Israel has been hostile, ineffective, and at odds with the promises he made in 2008."
