On Thursday, the “Emergency Committee for Israel” took out ads in major U.S. newspapers questioning Obama’s record on Israel. The ads accused the Obama administration of treating Israel “like a punching bag,” and quoted “cheap shots” made by U.S. officials about the Jewish state. Daniel Treiman, criticizing the ECI in a JTA piece, is right: The Emergency Committee for Israel’s ads include a quote from Haaretz’ Zvi Bar’el that was taken out of context. On the other hand, the Committee is also right: Obama’s most senior Secretaries recently developed the bad habit of punching Israel for no good reason.
