Israel Project launches TV ads


The Israel Project is launching a major TV ad campaign to coincide with the Republican and Democratic conventions.

Two ads, one focusing on Israel’s role in creating energy independence from Middle East oil and the other on Iran’s backing for terrorists and its suspected nuclear weapons program, will air 1,300 times on cable news networks over the next two weeks.

The Democratic convention takes place in Denver from Aug. 24 to Aug. 28, and the Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn. from Aug. 31 to Sept. 4.

The Iran ad underscores the threat of Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Lebanese terrorist group and begins: “Imagine Denver under missile attack from nearby Boulder.”
