Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush released a short video on his Facebook page and on Twitter Wednesday, blasting the administration of US President Barack Obama for failing to defend Israel during its current security crisis due to what Bush said was a shortsighted foreign policy strategy led by former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and US Secretary of State John Kerry.

"The Obama-Clinton-Kerry team is leaving a legacy of crises uncontained, violence unopposed, enemies unnamed, friends undefended and alliances unraveling," read a statement posted on Bush's Facebook page alongside the new campaign video.

The video depicts a montage of separate terror events that have occurred over the last two weeks, in which nine Israelis have been killed throughout the country.

"We have to lead, people have to know that we have their back," Bush can be heard saying in the video. "We need a president that does not disrespect our friends, like Israel," Bush added.

"We should be clear there is no moral equivalence, that inciting terror inside of Israel is not the equivalency of what Israel does in self-defense," Bush said.
