Jstreet isn't suppose to represent Israel. AIPAC is a foreign lobby, but it is not registered as so. Jstreet represents liberal American Jews who oppose settlements, have ties to Israel and believe in a Jewish state and peace with Palestinians. There are many American Jews who agree. Israelis are in a state of war. That's understandable. It's a violent area for them. No doubt. The answer is not more force, more confrontation. That has not worked. At any rate, Jstreet members can love Israel, but not like the way the Israeli politicians behave or their ideology. How many people in the world actually like the behavior of Israeli politicians outside of Israel?
