05/15/12 Carinne Luck, J Street's Vice President for Campaigns, and the person who sent out the mass email announcing the new J Street political initiative , is on video explaining to J Street members that what "the Administration" and people "on the Hill" want from J Street is for them to "move American Jews" towards their views, and so that is what J Street spends most of its resources doing. Got that? The goal of J Street is not to represent American Jews on the left, but is instead "to move American Jews" to the left and to the Administration's/friends on the Hill's point of view, and to "provide them with cover." And so J Street is "spending the bulk of its resources" doing that. See the video here. There are a few other nuggets, but we think admitting they take direction from elected officials, and that they are field operatives instead of constituency representatives, clears up the debate about who and what they are. The video was taped and put on YouTube by J Street, but was later removed from that site by them when Pro-Israel Media recognized what it really meant and began to share it.
I’m really not surprised.
I thought the Bible-belt Christians were the "easily led."
On the other hand, imagine how much fun it must be to charge millions of dollars to "lead" a group to left-wing positions they already hold.

And they want to move many Israeli Jews out of their homes.
J Street = Soros = Jew hatred = “progressive movement” = Obama = Israel’s destruction.
Any fellow Jew who votes for Obama is an idiot or doesn’t really respect the faith. How can there be any doubt about where his sympathies lie, particularly when he is advised by the likes of Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett and by Samantha Power? Good grief.
I think that the guy asking the question in the video may have been a mole for our side. Fortunately, I believe he was telling the truth when he complained about having difficulty peddling J Street's agenda to the Jewish community.
Fortunately, again, it seems as if the redheaded female with the British accent chairing that J street insider session has little leadership charisma. Whatever clout J Street possesses is not related to their own organizing capabilities, but to the company they keep with the Obama White House and the 'Rats in Congress. If, as we hope, the GOP wins both the White House and Congress in the November elections, J Street would be in dire distress, and justifiably so.
In the words of a civil rights protest song from the 60s, "WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED!"
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hope is frail. Every time Romney shows the white stripe down his back, my hope goes down a notch.
Hello, there. I’m from J Street. I’m here to convince you to help us help Israel to commit suicide, if they know what’s good for them.
I can see how the argument is less than compelling.
Understatement of the year, that. She reminds me of the OWS types.
