The Saudi government, through a Washington public relations firm, Qorvis Communications, spent $679,000 alone on anti-Israel radio ads that ran in 15 U.S. cities last spring, Time magazine reported this week. Qorvis initially said the ads were sponsored by a consortium of Mideast policy groups called the Alliance for Peace and Justice. But in a filing with the U.S. Justice Department last month, Qorvis revealed that the funding actually came from the Saudi government, according to the report.
