The reason US Jews and other supporters of Israel are alienated is that many groups got distracted from their pro-Israel focus. Instead of standing up for Israel, they stood up for the "peace" process. Certain groups and politicians even tied Israel's legitimacy to the "peace" process and tried to argue that Israel was founded through the benevolence of the UN. Those who support Israel support it because they support the Jewish people's right to be a free people in their own land. That right has nothing to do with what other states say or with worthless agreements that our "partners" ignore. Furthermore, making the claim that those who oppose this focus are somehow anti-peace is snobbish and shallow. Everyone wants peace, the question is whether we attain it by emboldening Israel's enemies and giving them incentives to continue violence or by finally saying, "Enough!" It's too bad more Jewish groups haven't said "Enough!" to the likes of J Street and its misguided leaders.
