A new 501(c)(4) advocacy group called Emergency Committee for Israel, has been created. They released their first video ad (shown below) today. It targets Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak, is 30 seconds long and will air on Fox and CNN during a game of the Philadelphia Phillies.


The ad starts with a picture of Sestak accompanied by the following question: “Does Congressman Joe Sestak understand Israel is America’s ally?”

The narrator continues by saying that “Sestak raised money for an anti-Israel organization the FBI called a front group for Hamas. Sestak signed a letter accusing Israel for collective punishment for blockading Hamas in Gaza. Sestak refused to sign a bipartisan letter affirming US support for Israel. Call Joe Sestak and ask him to stand with Israel.”

The letter the ad refers to was signed by 338 members of congress in a bipartisan show of support for Israel. A search for Sestak through the PDF file comes up – shocking, I know – empty.

Politico reports on the new group, Emergency Committee for Israel, today:

The Emergency Committee for Israel’s Leadership unites two major strands of support for the Jewish state: The hawkish, neoconservative wing of the Republican Party, many of whom are Jewish, and conservative Evangelical Christians who have become increasingly outspoken in their support for Israel. The new group’s board includes Weekly Standard Editor William Kristol and Gary Bauer, the former Republican presidential candidate who leads the group American Values, as well as Rachel Abrams, a conservative writer and activist.

“We’re the pro-Israel wing of the pro-Israel community,” said Kristol.

This ad is the first salvo in what is being called a “confrontational campaign against the Obama administration’s Mideast policy and the Democrats who support it.” I can’t wait to see what they’ll do next.
