The most telling line here:"J Street has never endorsed any substantive Israel government policies." But does not J Street support the 2 state solution of prior governments? Its a policy Bibi's government has not officially endorsed. Unless Mr. Lieber means the 2-state solution was not substantive policy, the only logical conclusion is that Lieber asserts love of or support for Israel requires unquestioning fealty for current government policy. Where does that leave the longstanding Jewish tradition of: two Jews,three opinions? Hillel and Shammai could live with disagreement, why not Lieber? After all, Rabin wanted a 2-state solution and was killed over it. I suspect that if Rabin were alive today, he'd offer some choice epithets to those who oppose the policy that was so important to him that he died for it. In this way, Mr. Lieber seems more akin to Baruch Goldstein in his narrow view of Am Yisrael. Hardly a prescription for Am Yisrael Chai in its broadest sense, dontcha think?
