  • Obama: Troll Hard With a Vengeance

    This week, as I have been predicting for months, President Barack Obama announced that he would be considering unprecedented executive action to provide legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. His goal is not to solve the immigration crisis -- you don't grant legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants, then leave the back door wide open if you're interested in solving the problem. His goal is not to help illegal immigrants -- he instead leaves them in limbo by granting them temporary work permits, rather than blanket amnesty. His goal is trolling. Trolling is a practice whereby a person...

    Eleven lawmakers backed by liberal advocacy group J Street either voted against or refused to vote in favor of increased funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, which has been a critical life-saver during Hamas’s latest assault on the Jewish state. Congress overwhelmingly approved an emergency increase in funding for Iron Dome this month by a vote of 395 to 8. Three of the eight who voted against the funding increase are J Street-backed lawmakers. Another eight abstained from the pro-Israel vote and also are financially supported by the group. J Street’s political action committee (PAC) has already donated...

    J Street Accuses Jews of Racism, Blames Jews for Anti-Semitism August 8, 2014 by Daniel Greenfield 20 Comments After Hamas violated yet another ceasefire, anti-Israel group J Street stepped up to do what it does best. Attack Jews and Israel. Jeremy Ben Ami, Soros’ J Street errand boy, began his missive by lying and claiming that Hamas did not break the ceasefire. “With the resumption of rocket fire from Gaza at the very moment the cease-fire expired this morning, all of us at J Street feel sick that the fighting is starting up again. “ Even the New York Times...

    Many photos of demonstration a site... I don’t quite know exactly how many attended the Hamas demo – a thousand or more, but I can tell you this: America has no idea how ugly and vicious the enemy within is. If they did they wouldn’t sleep nights. There is a fifth column that supports this genocide in the cause of Allah. That’s a fact. In between screams of “allahu akbar,” frenzied Muslims chanted the genocidal threat “Khybar, Khybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sa yaoud,” warning the Jews that the armies of Muhammad are coming to exterminate them the way Muhammad...

    A top J Street leader at Brandeis University harassed a pro-Israel student activist early Saturday morning, calling the student a “shit bag” and telling him that “Jews hate you,” according to those who witnessed the incident. Daniel Mael was walking to his dorm room on the university’s campus late Friday night when he encountered Talia Lepson, a J Street U Brandeis board member, who purportedly referred to Mael as a “shit bag” and angrily told him “Jews hate you.” “I don’t feel comfortable on campus knowing people will lob verbal insults at me simply because we disagree,” said Mael, who...

    The self-described “pro-Israel, pro-peace” liberal advocacy group J Street is soliciting funds for congressional candidates who are openly hostile to Israel while simultaneously targeting for defeat explicitly pro-Israel lawmakers who do not agree with its radical Middle East agenda, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of J Street’s election year strategy. Among the more than 50 candidates endorsed by J Street is a sizable delegation of lawmakers who have expressed hostility towards the Jewish state. At least six of J Street’s candidates have failed to affirm the U.S.-Israel alliance on the House floor, rejected Israel’s right to defend itself...

    Nine members of Congress aligned with the far-left group J Street either abstained or voted against a House bill that would reinforce the U.S.’s commitment to the State of Israel. The United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 soared through the House on a vote of 411-2. That was without the help of 10 J Street stalwarts, one who voted against the bill and nine who originally voted “present.” The bi-partisan bill, which was sponsored by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, reaffirms Israel’s right to defend itself in the face of terror attacks and redoubles Congress’ support for...

    J Street, ahead of its March conference, which follows hard upon the annual AIPAC conference, has released a campaign that in some ways would not be out of the place at AIPAC. AIPAC is chockablock with video testimonials like these, and it dotes on young faces and voices, like this one does. But it's more than just style: The speakers, explaining why they are "the future of Israel," adopt arguments not out of place at an AIPAC conference: One cites J Street as a tool in countering anti-Israel activity on his campus; another says she hopes to make aliya.

In The Washington Post article, Ben-Ami was quoted saying that he had "no problem" with the term "Israel-Firster" and emphasized that it is "a legitimate question" if an individual was "putting the interests of another country before the interests of the United States."

    The left-wing lobby group J Street has a problem. On the one hand, their leadership has been trying hard to portray itself as just another liberal pro-Israel Jewish group that deserves a place at the communal table. On the other, the radical instincts of much of its leadership and many of its supporters are so alienated from mainstream Jewish opinion about Israel and the Middle East conflict, the organization often finds itself lurching about trying to square two points of view that are incompatible. J Street first condemned Israel’s counter-offensive against Hamas terror in December 2008

Congressmen cheered Netanyahu on enthusiastically 50 times during his speech, 29 of those being standing ovations.

The delegation, composed of Democratic Congress members, was set to arrive in Israel on Monday. The trip was initiated...

The Washington Times reported on Thursday that J Street approached several US lawmakers in November 2009 asking whether they would be interested in meeting the author of the UN report on the war in Gaza, to ask him questions on his findings.

    J Street mixes its views on Israel with domestic party politics, and now, before midterm elections this is not the time to escalate partisan rhetoric around a two-state solution. J Street, the "pro-Israel, pro-peace" lobby, ran its first television commercial last week in the United States. Watching the ad online (it can be viewed via a link on my own organization's website, www.rethinkme.org) confirmed my worst suspicions about this new organization, which likes to portray itself as the "real voice" of the mainstream American Jewish community. The commercial makes J Street's particular bias quite obvious. It begins with overt political...

J Street, the self-proclaimed political home for “pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans,” launched a campaign on Monday calling on the US Treasury Department to look into whether organizations named in a July 6 New York Times report have broken the law.

The organizations support Jewish settlements in the West Bank and receive tax breaks...

    American Muslim leaders at the J Street Conference this week know exactly what J Street's real agenda is: bringing about a distancing in US-Israel relations and besmirching the mainstream Jewish community, under the guise of morality and justice. The pious spiritual claptrap that characterizes J Street's conference in Washington this week is both a conceit and a new form of Jewish apostasy. Conference speakers earnestly broadcast their "profound" Jewish and "spiritual" identities in order to besmirch the mainstream Jewish community and engender a distancing in US-Israel relations. This certainly does not fool the American Muslim leaders who are speaking at...

    J Street's university arm has dropped the "pro-Israel" part of the left-wing US lobby's "pro-Israel, pro-peace" slogan to avoid alienating students. That decision was part of the message conveyed to young activists who attended a special weekend program for students ahead of J Street's first annual conference, which began on Sunday. Students are seen as a key component of the 18-month-old organization's constituency base and the conference itself. The multi-day event has incorporated new technology and interactive forums to harness their energy and garner feedback from the audience, which swelled to 1,500 on Monday and created overflow plenary and breakout...

J Street was set up more than two years ago to offer an antidote to the large and powerful America Israel Public Affairs Committee. AIPAC enjoys substantial support in both the Democratic and Republican parties and is identified with a more "rightist" line on the peace process....
