Painting the Obama campaign as anti-Israel endangers the effectiveness of right-wing organizations across the United States

Pro-Israel organizations in the United States, primarily Jewish and Evangetlical Christian groups, have invested a great deal of effort in telling the American public how dangerous President Obama would be in a second-term for Israel. Politico writers Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman argue that making Israel the central foreign policy issue of the election to target the Jewish vote is counterproductive.  It calls the political effectivness of such groups into question in the event of a Democratic victory. Moreover, senior political figures etsimate that making Israel a partisan issue is likely to harm Israel itself in the long run.
