During a debate with J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami on May 15, 2012, Emergency Committee for Israel Chairman Bill Kristol said he "agree{d} with President Obama to a considerable degree," when it comes to the Administration's policies toward Israel and Iran.

One month later, the Emergency Committee for Israel released an Ad that not only blasts President Obama's handling of the Iranian nuclear threat -- it actually calls for an immediate attack on Iran.

Preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon is a key US and Israeli national security interest. That's why there's widespread support among Americans and Israeli security experts for the President's approach combining tough sanctions and hard-nosed diplomacy.

But the Emergency Committee for Israel is more interested in scoring partisan political points than advancing effective policies their own Chairman claimed to support "to a considerable degree."

In 2012 we need to be clear: there's no room for partisan politics when it comes to America and Israel's security.
