Joe Sestak’s Pro-Israel Record

July 20, 2010

J Street launched a new television advertisement in response to recent right-wing attacks on pro-Israel, pro-peace Members of Congress – in particular Congressman Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania. The ad highlights Rep. Sestak’s support for Israel and his commitment to ensuring its long-term peace and security through diplomacy.

In response to distortions of Sestak’s record on Israel in an advertisement by an ad hoc group fronted by Bill Kristol and Gary Bauer among other right-wing activists, J Street’s 30-second ad highlights both Sestak’s military experience – including his collaborative work with the Israel Defense Forces—and his Congressional record to underscore his experience advancing Israeli and American security interests in the region.
