"In the widening divide between American and Israeli Jews over concern for the future of Israel, there are many American Jews who have taken positions harmful to the security of the Jewish state. There are many reasons for this. Jews who have successfully moved into the larger society may wish to establish themselves as "progressives", with a universalist rather than particularist world view. They may fear, and wish to deflect, appearances of dual loyalty. They may strive to sidestep potential anti-Semitism by avoiding perceptions that they are less than fully American."

"During its short history, J Street has built up an extensive list of positions detrimental to Israel. With respect to Iran, they have defended Iran’s nuclear weapons program"
It should be mentioned that even one Islamic nation with nuclear capabilities is too many. India will remain forever threatened by the very real possibility that Pakistan goes rogue, or that in a fit of paranoia, pique, or outright insane hatred, the Pakistani military gambles on the bomb rather than on reason. It is only a matter of time before that happens.
Iran is no less dangerous than Pakistan, but far less involved in making nice to the world. That alone argues against J Street and their Iran position.
Israel has proven, time and again, that it is a greater friend of the United States and the Western World than any number of Muslims - whose collective pro-American actions do not match Israel's, and are far outweighed by their frequent anti-American manifestations. The Muslim world has still a long way to go to undo the ill-repute they deserve.
J Street, in its pandering to extremes proves itself no friend of Israel, America, or Obama.
