Does Israel really need American Jews lobbying to put pressure on it? Does it really need American Jews adopting positions which have no sense whatever of the realities on the ground in the Palestinian and Arab worlds? The JStreet people are simply a tool for enabling American pressure on Israel. However the pressure no matter how strongly applied can never solve the basic problem of Arab intransigence, the basic cause of the conflict. They are misguided and can only do damage.
