Ideas, opinions, and positions of different kinds and from different points of view make us stronger, not weaker. J street has started a dialogue that must be continued, not stifled. A rigid, right wing Bush-like position will do nothing for Israel's cause. We are are fighting an existential battle, and we must bring together all those who want to win it for Israel, and allow ideas to be expressed freely, so as to choose the best solutions. Clearly, the Netanyahu government does not have the correct solutions, and fanatic views are no longer tolerated. The sooner we all realize that, the better Israel's position will become.
