Californian Democrat Lois Capps, a member of Congress since 1998 and now standing for a sixth term, is one of 66 Democrats endorsed by J Street. However, the Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI) has released the above 30-second TV ad that highlights what it calls
"her troubling foreign policy record....
Capps has been consistently hostile to the U.S.-Israel alliance. She has accused Israel of war crimes, befriended the radical Islamic group CAIR, refused to sign bipartisan letters of support for Israel, and supported the libelous Goldstone Report."Says Noah Pollak, executive director of the ECI:
"If there is a member of Congress whose foreign policy record is more extreme than Lois Capps's, I can't think of one. Throughout her career, she has demonstrated an inability to distinguish between America's friends and enemies and has repeatedly attacked America's closest ally in the Middle East – Israel."The ad will air hundreds of times over the coming weeks on cable and broadcast television in Representative Capps's district, which includes Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and San Luis Obispo counties.
