Israel expat campaign angers Jewish-Americans

Advertisements urging half-million expatriate population in US to return "home" are pulled by Israel's PM.

    Jewish-Americans have been expressing outrage about an Israeli advertising campaign in the US.

    Israel's ministry of immigration created the advertisements to call on half a million Israeli-Americans to come back.

    The outcry is being taken seriously by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has pulled the controversial campaign.
