US President Barack Obama is at risk of losing financial support for his re-election campaign from Jewish donors and fund-raisers because of concerns about his attitude towards Israel, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. 

The complaints began early in Obama's term, centered on a perception he has been too tough on Israel, the report suggested.

According to The Wall Street Journal, top Democratic fund-raiser Michael Adler said he urged Obama campaign manager Jim Messina to be "extremely proactive" in countering the perception in the Jewish community that Obama is too critical of Israel.
