Predictably, when it comes to current developments in the Middle East, J Street keeps saying all the wrong things and making all the wrong choices. Kerry’s futile marathon? They believe he is
truly the only one who can bring about the mythical and by now largely discredited “two-state solution”. Apparently the keen sense of observation already shown on many occasions as sorely missing
in J Street and its supporters has failed them again: they didn’t notice that the Palestinians have once again intoned the only song they have ever known: “Lah-Lah-Lah!” (i.e. “No-No-No!” in
Arabic) to all and any of Kerry's proposals. J Street’s by now legendary disconnect with reality has not improved one bit. More? When it comes to Iran, they are 150% behind Obama and Kerry,
pleading to “give diplomacy a chance” and not impose new sanctions on Iran. Never mind that this “diplomacy” is condemning Israel, the country they falsely claim to support, to face a horrible
choice between having to attack Iran alone or learning to live under the new Persian version of the sword of Damocles, all courtesy of the man who promised repeatedly that he had "Israel’s
back". So when will the J Street charade end? When will its well-meaning but depressingly naive supporters wake up to the fact that they are not helping to bring about peace, but its exact
opposite? Maybe when they see the new movie coming out soon called “The J Street Challenge”, which hopefully will restore some sanity among Jewish communities nationwide divided by J Street’s
siren song. Of course Ben Ami’s devotees will not want to watch anything that challenges their guru’s moral legitimacy (even if he has none), but the rest of us will, and we should encourage
everybody else to watch it as well. Once again, the J Street ridiculous motto that they are “pro-Israel and pro-peace” is nothing but a double lie, and they should be held accountable for both.
There is one key sentence in the article below describing the film: “... affiliation with J Street … allows liberal Jews to equate their identity with their fealty to the “progressive” values
they see Israel as betraying”. How true. The problem this reveals is that for all their self-congratulatory liberalism, J Street supporters are in fact more concerned about their own moral
comfort than about the security of Israel. Feeling good about themselves is all that matters, even if it means that they are the ones betraying the country they claim to support. That kind of
selfishness is simply reprehensible.
