As the US presidential election heats up, a new ad featuring Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is set to hit the airwaves in the crucial swing-state of Florida on Thursday, Politico
The ad features footage of Netanyahu at a recent press conference saying, "The fact is that every day that passes, Iran gets closer and closer to a nuclear bomb. The world tells Israel wait, there's still time. And I say wait for what? Wait until when?" followed by a voice-over saying "The world needs American strength, not apologies." While not naming either candidate explicitly, Republicans have accused US President Barack Obama of "apologizing for America."
According to Politico
's report, a million dollars worth of ad-space will target the clip in the Miami, West Palm Beach and Fort Myers, areas with large Jewish populations.
The company behind the clip is a 501(c)4 non-profit called Secure America Now, which does not have to disclose its donors, but was founded by Republican pollsters John McLaughlin and Pat Caddell.
