Just in time for Netanyahu visit, neocon ad in ‘NYT’ attacks MJ Rosenberg and CAP

Just in time for the AIPAC conference and Netanyahu's visit to Barack Obama, the New York Times today features a full page ad from neoconservatives saying that liberals must support Israel. The ad attacks two Democratic Party-linked thinktanks, the Center for American Progress and Media Matters, for criticism of Israel. It names M.J. Rosenberg of Media Matters and says he is a bigot. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The ad has a scare image of a wolf, and features quotes from Alan Dershowitz and Spencer Ackerman (inaccurately characterizing the use of the term "Israel Firster"). It asks people to call the foundations that fund the two thinktanks-- notably the Pritzker foundation. The Pritzker family has supported Barack Obama.
