(Reuters) - President Barack Obama will sign a bill to strengthen U.S.-Israeli military cooperation on Friday on the eve of a visit to Israel by his Republican presidential challenger, Mitt Romney.
Obama will seek to stress his commitment to Israel's security for American Jewish voters at a White House ceremony that appeared timed to upstage Romney, who has accused the president of undermining U.S.-Israeli ties.
Congress passed the legislation, the U.S.-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act, with broad support from Obama's Democrats and Republicans last week.
"The bill deepens our security cooperation with Israel by expanding our military assistance and providing Israel with access to additional equipment," White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said on Thursday.
Obama, criticized by some of Israel's U.S. supporters for being too tough on a close ally, wants to shore up his support among Jewish voters, who could prove critical in battleground states like Florida and Pennsylvania in the November 6 election.

Too little, too late!
LOL. Yeah, you’re a real uniter there, Obamugabe.
They are that stoooopid.... that is how he got there! A totally unvetted , unqualified cultural alien who stands for everything anti American. A failure at everything American right down to his lacking of academic achievements.
Had they asked questions, he would not be there today. Still they know nothing of the man other than he is a isflamist.
What an utter POS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE this man with EVERY fiber of my being. I hope the Israelis realize what he is doing.
Will it be for seven years?
Our Jew-hating, Muslim Marxist president must have been choking while he signed that bill. But he can tell himself that if he gets a second term, he can ignore it just like he does most laws and get on with his agenda of selling Israel completely out to the arabs.
“Will it be for seven years?”
That is a good question!
Obama is worried about the 2 or 3 or 4 percent that are Jewish voters but will probably carry them, or most of them, still. He is a lot more worried about all the good (real) Christians out there who also may vote in November...
It’s him F15 Eagle...
