The Israel Lobby's unabashed targeting of Democratic candidates for the Senate and House in the midterm election, candidates it sees as being insufficiently pro-Israel, reveals a new organization out there associated with the uberNeocon, William Kristol, called the Emergency Committee for Israel. It is producing and funding political ads like those seen above.
MJ Rosenberg provided this update:
The fury of the "pro-Israel" lobby lately has truly been something to behold.
It has abandoned bipartisanship by setting up front organizations like the so-called Emergency Committee for Israel, which is running ads across the country calling on voters to defeat Democratic members of the House and Senate for signing a letter urging President Obama to address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
With all the problems average Americans are facing, the lobby is so out-of-touch that it thinks that hard-hit Pennsylvanian voters (the ads runs most often in the Keystone State) will actually cast their votes based on the lobby's litmus test of who is and who isn't hawkish enough on Israel.
For some earlier background on the Emergency Committee for Israel published at Salon, read: Bill Kristol will protect Israel with attack ads against Democrats.
