Concerns over US President Barack Obama's push to reach a potentially disastrous deal with Iran on its nuclear weapons program led the Washington-based Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI) to release a one-minute TV ad Thursday entitled "Obama's March to War."
The ad is scheduled to run multiple times this week and next week on CNN, MSNBC and FoxNews, and highlights why Americans and US allies have cause to doubt Obama's promises to stop a nuclear Iran.
Noah Pollak, ECI's executive director, said Obama's "administration may be able to fix a broken promise on health insurance, but it won't be able to fix a world in which Iran has nuclear weapons."
The TV spot can be seen here:
Fears that Obama will rush into a bad deal with Iran on its nuclear program were strengthened by recent reports that his administration has already been easing sanctions on Iran for the past 5 months without Congressional approval.
Those reports follow earlier analysis that Obama is hurrying to sign a deal and in the process sell out US allies Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Friction between the US and Israel has only grown as US Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly told Senators Wednesday to "ignore anything the Israelis say" about Iran. Meanwhile new polls show Israelis don't trust the US to ensure their security in talks with Iran.
Economics Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home/Bayit Yehudi) is currently in Washington to convince American policy makers not to support any deal that doesn't completely dismantle Iran's nuclear program.
