The Emergency Committee for Israel has released a TV ad highlighting the troubling foreign policy record of US Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA).

The 30-second spot will air hundreds of times over the next few weeks in the Congresswoman's districts in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

Capps has been consistently hostile to Israel, and America's alliance with the Jewish State.

She has accused Israel of war crimes, refused to sign bipartisan letters of support for Israel, befriended the radical Islamist group CAIR and supported the libelous United Nations' Goldstone Report.

"If there is a member of Congress whose foreign policy record is more extreme than Lois Capps', I cannot think of one,” said ECI executive director Noah Pollak in a statement released to media.

"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.”
