As a Zionist, a rabbi and a J Street supporter, I am -- along with millions of American Jews -- very pleased with the Obama Administration's response to the ill-conceived plan to build more Jewish housing in East Jerusalem. If Israel wants to survive, it needs to decide -- one state, or two. If one state, then it'll be a majority Arab state. That's the reality. Without a viable Palestine next to Israel, there won't be a Jewish & democratic Israel within a few years. Sometimes true friends are the ones who tell you the truth.
