ECI vs. AJC

A little fracas has erupted between our friends at the Emergency Committee for Israel and our friends at American Jewish Committee.  The point at issue is this recent ad run by ECI in the New York Times.  AJC President David Harris, though not explicitly opposed to any of the ads language or points, objects strongly to the timing of the ad.

See this article on Tablet for more information on this little skirmish.

    I think it should be noted that the ECI is run/founded by Republican conservatives including Bill Kristol and Margaret Hoover (of the Bush administration).

    ECI is not like AIPAC in that (in my opinion) it makes being pro-israel a partisan, rather than a bipartisan endeavor. I think by being so blatantly partisan, ECI is actually being detrimental to Israeli interests.

    Other Jewish leaders agree: http://www.forward.com/articles/143317/
