Obama Challenges Romney, Gingrich Attacks on Israel Policies

President Barack Obama, speaking to the biggest pro-Israel group in the U.S., sought to bolster his strength among Jewish voters as he challenged Republican assertions that he’ll permit Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.

“If during this political season you hear some questions regarding my administration’s support for Israel, remember that it’s not backed up by the facts,” Obama told more than 13,000 people attending the annual Washington conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
