The current Commentary magazine arrived today,and I was impressed with its new format.One article that stood was an an anaysis of J Street, the left wing lobby that calls itself "pro-Israel".
On day 1 of the Israeli Gaza offensive they called for an immediate cease-fire.We wrote about how they tried to influence Congress to include that in the Congressional resolution supporting Israel-they failed.
They have a number of opponents,the Govt. of Israel, AIPAC and the Presidents Conf.,and anyone who is not a flaming lefty.They support the Saudi plan ( code for Israel's destruction) ,and favor US pressure on Israel. In essence they are the ME Move-on.org.
Today as reported in Haaretz,they are trying to moblize American Jewish groups to condemn FM Avigdor Lieberman for his comments yesterday re. Annaplolis..
THEY CERTAINLY ARE ENTITLED TO THEIR DISTORTED VIEWS. HOWEVER,LIKE THE NETUREI KARTA,WHY DON'T THEY SPEAK HONESTLY AND TAKE OUT THE WORDS "PRO-iSRAEL" FROM THEIR RELEASES. They are pro-Arab ,and each and every condemnation they recieve is truly justified.They have not been politically effective,but their pr effforts are fodder for the anti-Israel media, (NYT etc)
