done so far has been an attempt to embarrass Israel's government in front of various organizations and states worldwide. Whether J Street likes it or not, Israel's government was formed based on democratically applied principles and procedures. It is the best government the citizens of Israel could come up with and it is not for any J Street type entity, that may or may not exist in reality, to tell Israel's citizens how to conduct their affairs. I may or may not agree with J Street pronounced ideas/policies but their ideas/policies can legitimately be expressed in one of two ways: 1. In Israel's elections by Israeli citizens. 2. In none public discussions with Israel's government while assuming that it is Israel's government that makes the final decision and not J Street. Be-Ami, for all his skills, is just a Washington based lobbyist and not a political figure in the sovereign state of Israel!!!

Let them come. Let them come in droves. Let artists like Bruce Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt bring Israelis who need to hear it, a message of social justice and freedom for Palestinians.18:17 03.05.16 | 1 comments
