J Street Backs Terrorist Refusal to Recognize Israel as Jewish


Apparently the J in J Street stands for anything but Jewish. J Street, a left-wing lobby that is hostile to the Jewish State, likes to claim that it’s Pro-Israel and Pro-Peace.

The reality is that it’s just Anti-Israel. And Anti-Jewish.

In a development that is not sending shockwaves through the pro-Israel community, the “pro-Israel, pro-peace” advocacy group J Street has declared its support for the Palestinian refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

In a statement posted on the group’s website, executive director Jeremy Ben-Ami says that to “keep moving forward, both [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] now need to give a little.”

Netanyahu, he says, must drop his insistence that Abbas recognize Israel as a Jewish State because “it is simply unrealistic and unreasonable to expect any Palestinian leader to consent” to such a demand.

Ben-Ami never goes on to say what Abbas “needs to give.”

Israel has done nothing but give, infinitely and endlessly. Just to get Abbas to negotiate, Israel had to release terrorists with blood on their hands.

This latest move by the anti-Israel group is a reminder of why The J Street Challenge remains important and relevant.

    I think that JStreet is funded, at least in part, by George Soros, unrepentant Hungarian Jewish collaborator with the Nazis. It might be useful to find out the source of funds for JStreet.

      Saudi Arabia is probably a significant contributor under some front organization. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Obama’s US state department is also a contributor. We know how much the like Israel.

      • Gee

        No front organization – Saudi Arabia’s royal family is large contributor and yes the US State Department also has contributed large amounts

      They are as Jewish as Unitarians are Christian.

      George Soros set them up with seed money.

    The real basis of J Street is decades, even centuries now, of slave-like Jewish adherence to the far left agenda. In essence, the chickens have come home to roost. If Israel can hold out for about 20 years, barren wombs will obviate the problem.

    How remarkable that Leninists and social democrats have now joined hands. This was unthinkable before 1935, but Pop Front politics have prevailed, with the Right as the new fascists (according to the expanded “Left”).

    Little known fact about J Street: The J in J Street stands for Jim Baker.

    J street is proof that the old European Bunds did not really die. They got Americanized into non-profits and got a donor list in the bargain. Good old American know-how can make even socialist trolls rich.
