Bush Campaign Releases Video in Support of Israel

Republican presidential candidate Jeb released another pro-Israel web ad on Tuesday, this time blasting Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration for its treatment of Israel as it grapples with a continuous wave of violence.

“The Obama-Clinton-Kerry team is leaving a legacy of crises uncontained, violence unopposed, enemies unnamed, friends undefended and alliances unraveling,” Bush is seen saying in a series of clips put together on the matter. “We need a president that does not disrespect our friends like Israel.”

The video also includes a recent appearance on Fox News, in which Bush stated, “We should be very clear that there is no moral equivalence; that inciting terror inside of Israel is not the equivalency of what Israel does in self-defense. Israel is responding as any sovereign nation would. We should be completely on their side on this.”

The video, posted on Bush’s Facebook page, had 34,000 views and 245 shares in the first 24 hours.
