The Emergency Committee for Israel calls on every member of Congress to "do his duty and act to kill this proposed deal."
The full statement reads:
"The Emergency Committee for Israel expects that every member of Congress will do his duty and act to kill this proposed deal. The proposed deal is a litany of concessions to Iran, a terror-sponsoring regime committed to the destruction of Israel, to the death of Americans, and to the deception of the international community. The proposed deal would allow Iran to become a threshold nuclear weapons state and would grant its illicit nuclear weapons program international legitimacy. The proposed deal would leave Iran's nuclear weapons infrastructure in place; it would allow Iran to continue enriching while keeping all of its nuclear facilities open and running; and it would provide full sanctions relief in exchange for inspections and limitations on enrichment that Iran could break at any time it chooses to do so.
"No amount of Obama Administration spin can make this proposed deal a deal worth having or worth ratifying. This proposed deal is unacceptable. No friend of Israel can support it. If Congress does its job this proposed deal will soon be forgotten, another White House press release happily buried on the ash heap of history."

"What's the capital of Israel?," ECI asks in a press release accompanying the ad. "President Obama once knew. In 2008 he declared that 'Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.'"
