    It seems they're receiving considerable funding from Muslims and Arabs WASHINGTON, Aug 14, 2009 (IPS) - News reports and right-wing blogs have been repeating reports which claim that Muslims and Arabs are among the donors to the J Street political action committee (PAC) which lobbies American policymakers to work on a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and helps raise campaign funds for candidates who share the views of J Street on promoting American leadership in the peace process. The report that J Street PAC receives a small percentage - J Street?s Executive Director Jeremy Ben-Ami, guessed that three-percent of their contributions were from individuals with Arab or Muslim names - of its funding from Arabs or Muslims has gotten significant attention on right wing publications and blogs such as: American Thinker, The Weekly Standard Blog, and Israel National News. "Arab and Muslim donors are extremely rare for other organisations that describe themselves as supporters of Israel as J Street does," wrote the Jerusalem Post?s Hilary Leila Krieger in an article entitled ?Muslims, Arabs among J Street Donors.? While the Jerusalem Post took care to present these statistics without crossing the line into making explicit allegations against J Street, far-right pundits quoted in the article and bloggers didn?t feel compelled to hold back suggesting that J Street?s willingness to take money from Arabs and Muslims undermines their pro-Israel credentials. http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=48097
