Pro-Israel Ads Slated For Cable News

  • August 27, 2002
According to The Jerusalem Post, an ad campaign featuring Israel's “positive side” will appear on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. The spots are based on the findings of a national poll on Americans' views of the Middle East conflict that was sponsored by the American Jewish Committee. The mid-July surveys were conducted by Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg, Democratic consultant Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi, and Republican consultant Frank Luntz. While officials are keeping mum on the details of the poll results, initial findings show that support for Israel has slipped from a record high of 60% after the September 11 attacks to 42% today. Support for the Palestinians has remained steady at 10%. The Post says he new ads are being paid for by the AJC, a Silicon Valley- based group called Israel21C, and private donors. They are aimed at reinvigorating support for the Jewish state by touting its attributes, according to informed sources.
