It's already understood that such groups as J-Street and Peace Now, etc. are not only legitimate representation of the Jewish community, in Israel and the Diaspora - and in fact, have been the very catalyst of changing positive developments with the peace process - that the current Israeli government officials fear any affirmation of the liberal sociopolitical stance. It's obvious that the liberal voices within Israel and abroad have enhanced the momentum towards reconciliation with the Arab World and the members of the Netanyahu government won't ever admit their failures in the past and present which has stagnated the process. So who to blame or not give any credence, but those who have tirelessly taken bold measures in improving relations with Israel's adversaries. Such aims in detachment of a significant sector within the Jewish community does not spell longevity for the existing Netanyahu coalition - besides the overwhelming liberal (Reform) monetary input Israel receives.
