Coinciding with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to the White House this week, a 30-minute video has been released detailing the Obama Administration's record on Israel called, Daylight: The Story of Obama and Israel. I've posted the entire video at the end of this post.
Via: The CableDaylight: New Film Blasts Obama's Israel Record
One day before the AIPAC conference kicks off in Washington, an anti-Obama pro-Israel group is widening its criticism of President Barack Obama's record on Israel -- while the White House defends its treatment of the relationship.
The trailer for a new 30-minute video, entitled "Daylight: The Story of Obama and Israel," cuts together clips of Obama quotes and outside commentary to put forth the narrative that Obama has made statements and taken actions as president that have put him out of step with the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his supporters.
The group that produced the film has spent lots of money on a publicity campaign throughout Washington:
The video was produced by the group the Emergency Committee for Israel, which has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on its pre-AIPAC publicity campaign, including posters and billboards all over Washington that question Obama's commitment to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.Read the entire article here.
"He says a nuclear Iran is unacceptable. Do you believe him?" the posters read. Then, next to a picture of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini and President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, it says, "Do they?"
The video reminds us of how President Obama campaigned as a friend of Israel, but has proven to be anything but a friend. It's worth the watch in preparation for the upcoming meetings, which will focus on the Iranian threat to Israel (and to the world).
How will President Obama respond to PM Netanyahu this week? If the video is any indication of what Obama thinks of Netanyahu and Israel, I don't think they'll be on the same page.
