President Barack Obama’s approach has not deterred Iran from continuing its march toward nuclear capability, claims a 30-second advertisement released Thursday by the Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI).

ECI, a political advocacy group, contends in the ad that “President Obama has spent four years talking” while “Iran has spent four years building a secret nuclear site, nuclear fuel near weapons level, long-range missiles.”

The ad features Obama saying in 2008 that “Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon I believe is unacceptable,” and in 2009 that “we do want to make sure that by the end of this year we’ve actually seen a serious process move forward.”

Iran now “has six times more enriched uranium than when President Obama came into office—enough for five nuclear bombs,” ECI Executive Director Noah Pollak said in a statement.

The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) responded that the ad “has nothing to do with Iran, or Israel,” but instead “has to do with one thing: electing republicans and defeating President Barack Obama.”
