Conservative group Secure America Now is running an ad in Florida using Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The ad focuses on the security of Israel in the Muslim world. It is a direct hit on Barack Obama’s dangerous Middle East strategy.

Bibi Netanyahu is not running a campaign in the US – it just looks that way in this new ad.
A spot featuring only the Israeli prime minister talking about Iran is set to hit the airwaves in select Florida markets tomorrow, a media tracking source confirms.
The spot is the work of a c4 called Secure America Now – which, thanks to its tax status, doesn’t have to disclose its donors.
A Republican involved with the project said its airing in Miami, West Palm Beach and Ft. Myers. The flight is ultimately going to be $1 million, the official said – a media-tracking source said about $400,000 has been placed so far.
Those markets house some of the state’s largest Jewish communities.
The spot comes just after Netanyahu, who all but endorsed Mitt Romney in Israel in July, appeared on “Meet the Press” and distanced himself a bit from the GOP candidate’s criticisms of President Obama, but also discussed Israel’s concern about a nuclear Iran.
