WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is working to court Jewish voters leading into the 2012 election, as Republicans seek to chip away at the president's support in the Jewish community by attacking him over Israel.

Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and other GOP hopefuls say Obama hasn't done enough for Israel and hasn't been tough enough on the Palestinians. The White House and Obama campaign officials dispute that, and Obama says his administration has done more to help Israel's security than past U.S. administrations.

But the constant criticism from Republicans has raised questions in the Jewish community that Obama supporters are increasingly working to rebut.
