Contrary to J Street denials, the Washington Times uncovers evidence that J Street facilitated meetings between Judge Richard Goldstone– author of the “Goldstone Report” on the war in Gaza which is considered unfairly hostile to Israel across all but the very extreme left of both the Israeli and American Jewish political spectrums–and members of Congress. Jeffrey Goldberg follows up, wondering if J Street can weather these scandals–even reporters sympathetic to J Street are angry at being lied to.
I don’t know about J Street’s overall future, but it’s hard for me to see how its founder, president, and chief spin doctor, Jeremy Ben-Ami, stays in his position.
via volokh.comthe tragedy is all the college and youth outreach (aka brain washing) that J street did on campuses to disenfranchised Jews. These students were led to believe that J Street represented mainstream Jewish opinion... when in fact a singular source was dictating values. I'm not convinced that college kids are capable of critical thinking these days.
