Silence Is Consent -- The Most Shocking 30 Second Ad of the Year
Israel’s very existence is threatened by Iran's ongoing nuclear program. The Obama Administration continues to treat Israel, and her Prime Minister not as a close ally, but with overt contempt. Brad Sherman, my opponent in the upcoming primary for California’s 30th District Congressional seat, is quietly distancing himself from the very same person he helped re-elect.
I’m not challenging his support for, or emotional connection to Israel. However, I want you to take a serious look at Sherman's silence concerning the Middle East and the State of Israel, our only true friend in the region. I would speak loudly and clearly in opposition to:
Obama and Sec. of State John Kerry's deal to lift sanctions on Iran in return for suspending plutonium and uranium enrichment
The Palestinian Authority’s Resolution for state recognition to the U.N.
President Obama’s demand for Israel to return to the 1967 borders.
The growing dominance of the Muslim Brotherhood in the region.
The spread of Sharia Law in the region and in the United States.
The failure of the sanctions imposed on Iran and North Korea.
The Democrat endorsement of the Anti-Semitic J Street lobbyist group (including the personal endorsement by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz).
The support for multinational resolutions to strip Israel of nuclear weapons.
The refusal to approve any major Israeli request for U.S. weapons platforms or advanced systems.
The sale of such systems to Muslim nations which do not have a viable peace treaty with Israel.
President Obama’s treatment of Prime Minister Netanyahu during his first visit to the White House.
The condemnation of settlement building in Ramat Shlomo, the Jewish suburb of North Jerusalem.
President Obama’s obsequious bowing to Muslim leaders.
President Obama’s sacrifice of U.S.-Israeli relations.
President Obama’s failure to visit Israel.
This list could go on forever.
The final question you need to ask yourself is whether you will be better off if you send Sherman back to Washington, D.C. to represent us. The existential threat portrayed in my ad is real. And the horrific outcome portrayed has a far greater likelihood of becoming real if we do not change course. We need to send this rubber stamp home and elect a representative that will lead and not follow the party dictates.
That is why I produced this ad. I am not afraid to represent you in Washington, D.C. and challenge my party when the time calls for it.
