The Emergency Committee for Israel has released this ad, targeting Democratic Rep. Lois Capps from California:

"Today the Emergency Committee for Israel released 'What's Wrong,' a 30-second TV ad that highlights Rep. Lois Capps' troubling foreign policy record. The spot will air hundreds of times over the coming weeks on cable and broadcast television in Capps' district, which includes Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and San Luis Obispo counties," says ECI in a press release.

Capps has been consistently hostile to the U.S.-Israel alliance. She has accused Israel of war crimes, befriended the radical Islamic group CAIR, refused to sign bipartisan letters of support for Israel, and supported the libelous Goldstone Report. 

ECI executive director Noah Pollak adds: "If there is a member of Congress whose foreign policy record is more extreme than Lois Capps', I can't think of one. Throughout her career, she has demonstrated an inability to distinguish between America's friends and enemies and has repeatedly attacked America's closest ally in the Middle East -- Israel."
