Jonathan Strong of Breitbart reports that the Emergency Committee for Israel dropped a "brutal ad" targeting Republican Walter Jones of North Carolina. Here's the ad:

As Strong writes, "The Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI) dropped a brutal new television ad against Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), the first time the group has waded into a primary that has become something of a proxy battle in the Tea Party war against the establishment."

The ad, backed by a “six figure” buy, takes Jones to task for his liberal views on foreign policy, including opposing sanctions on Iran and refusing to back a non-binding House resolution expressing support for Israel's right to defend itself in 2012.

The ad features footage of anti-Israel protesters burning an American and Israeli flag while a narrator details Jones' record.
