across the defunct Green Line means that it would like the 300,000 Jewish residents of these neighborhoods - half the Jewish inhabitants of the entire city - to pack up and leave their homes. These neighborhoods weren't built in a day, but have existed for tens of years. J Street ignores the fact that Ramat Shlomo has existed since 1995 and the only new thing abot it is the plan to build an additional 1600 housing units. Jewish sovereignty over these parts of Jerusalem is a fact, and even those Jewish Israeli politicians who are for dividing Jerusalem wouldn't dream of transferring these neighborhoods (which include Ramat Shlomo) to Palestinian rule. This includes Labor, Kadima and Meretz. Therefore, J Street's stance must be considered anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli, and not merely anti Netanyahu or anti right-wing, for it stands in opposition to every single Zionist party in Israel, left to right.
