Netanyahu Campaign Ad Bashes White House
Any thought that Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Congress isn’t a further attempt to bash President Obama has been put to rest.
The Likud party ad, as translated by BuzzFeed, argues that the White House has actively opposed Israeli interests before — including that one time where it opposed the creation of the State of Israel itself:
The black-and-white text reads, “In 1948, Ben-Gurion stood before a fateful moment: The creation of the State of Israel.”
The ad continues: “The U.S. secretary of state firmly objected [the establishment of Israel]. Ben-Gurion — contrary to the State Department’s position — announced the establishment of the state… Would we be here today had Ben-Gurion not done the right thing?”
The clip ends with the slogan “Only Likud. Only Netanyahu.”
