Skip to comments.New DNC Chair Endorses Fringe Anti-Israel Group (J Street)

The newly appointed chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) has sustained and controversial ties to the fringe anti-Israel lobby, J Street.
In early 2009, Wasserman Schultz hosted an event on Capitol Hill with J Street, a group then under fire for issuing a statement accusing Israel of collective punishment in Gaza and equating Israeli self-defensive measures with those of Hamas. J Street's comments were so incendiary, they drew immediate condemnation from all corners of the Jewish community, including noted liberal Rabbi Eric Yoffie, who called the group "profoundly out of touch."
Yet Wasserman Schultz, only weeks later, showed her support for J Street (here and here), calling the controversial group an "organization that supports Israel and supports peace and is working to foster an advanced peace process," placing her at odds with even the most liberal of Jewish Democrats. She also compared the group to pro-Israel stalwart AIPAC, described J Street's goals as "worthy as well," and later served as featured speaker for J Street's first annual gala event in Washington, DC, despite many of her colleagues choosing to disavow the event.
"We are deeply troubled by incoming DNC Chairman Wasserman Shultz's embrace of groups, such as J Street, that undermine Israel's security," RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said. "In blindly conferring legitimacy for fringe groups like J Street, she has raised serious questions about her own credibility and judgment."
Brooks added, "As the chairman of the DNC, Wasserman Schultz will be under increasing pressure to yield to the fringe left of the Democratic Party and further strengthen her ties to anti-Israel groups like J Street and anti-Israel donors like George Soros."

May the god of Israel that keeps watch open her eyes.
“Republican Jewish Coalition”
Did you notice this? We ARE American Jews.
And this surprises — who?!
She's not a real human being anyway.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz OWNS the vote of the Jewish population in Florida's 20th district.
Please, we must get the word out to these good people who are deceived into voting for DWS.
Here is the statement of Karen Harrington--fighting to be a CONSTITUTION-respecting representative of the 20th district--on Israel:
I hope you can recruit some members around here. Unfortunately, all my Jewish friends are rabid democrats. I don't dare talk politics with them.
Sounds like a worthwhile cause
As long ago as 2003:
Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, called it absolutely obscene that Soros blames Israel and Jews for anti-Semitism and used the rhetoric of anti-Semites in doing so.
Said Foxman: He buys into the stereotype Its blaming the victim for all of Israels and the Jewish peoples ills.
You know, you watch these people when they talk and you hear what they say, but their eyes are as empty as their words. It’s like watching night of the living dead, They have no core. There is not even any emotion in their words. Rote. Automatons. They don’t look at you, and never in the eye. They look past you or over you, but never at you. Truth eludes them. Reality does not affect them. Zionism offends them.
They are the damned.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
J Street is not a Jewish organization, it's a pseudo "pro-Israel" organization whose support is rejected by Israel, more accurately a hard left American political lobby. Which is fine. It should come as no surprise that Debbie Schultz, a hard leftist, is a supporter.
Disgusting fake Obama loving Jew drop dead Wasserman you hag (I am Jewish)
Wasserman is a more disgusting than average lefty Jew traitor to Israel.. An embarrassment to her forefathers going back 20 generations. A shonda! Blech!
