Weekend tidbits, 12.17.11: Jewish vote wars



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.
