RJC’s latest calls Obama “reckless”

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The newest advertisement in the Republican Jewish Coalition’s ad campaign takes on Barack Obama’s position on Jerusalem.

Headlined “Where does Barack Obama stand on Jerusalem? It depends on what day you ask him,” the advertisement states that the Democrat’s “shifting views on Jerusalem are reckless.” It points out that at his speech at the AIPAC policy conference last June, Obama stated that Jerusalem should be the undivided capital of Jerusalem, but the next day said it should be the subject of negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians.

One thing the RJC left out of the advertisement is John McCain’s position on the division of Jerusalem. In fact, it happens to be exactly the same as Obama’s: It “will be addressed in negotiations.”
