A new ad running in Florida from SecureAmericaNow.org features Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking at a press conference calling for a “clear red line” to be drawn to halt Iran’s nuclear-weapons activities, rather than the “red light” that the Obama administration has provided.
The ad comes less than a week after vice president Joe Biden claimed that there is no question of the strong collaboration between the United States and Israel in how to handle Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
“During the vice presidential debate last week, Joe Biden claimed that he and the Prime Minister were close friends and colleagues,” said Paul Atanasio, a SAN advisory board member and U.S. military veteran.
“We thought the American public should hear the status of that friendship directly from the Prime Minister and make their own decisions about just how closely aligned the U.S. and Israel are when it comes to the most important national security threat our two nations face today.”
“Given the state of affairs in the broader Middle East — anti-American protests in more than 20 countries, a radical Muslim Brotherhood party ruling Egypt, and Iran’s nuclear agenda — Americans must consider these issues and the course of our nation’s foreign policy agendy,” SAN’s advisory board member Jeri Thompson said. “It’s time that America made clear it stands with Israel against Iran, and draws a clear red line against it.”
The ad comes as part of the nonpartisan organization’s expansion of its issues-advocacy campaign in Florida, aimed at highlighting important national security issues.
Independent polling, the group says, has shown Americans broadly supporting some type of action to slow or end the Middle Eastern nation’s quest to go nuclear.
