    their vision, based on wishful thinking and detachment from reality, of what should be in accordance with what is "politically correct" from an American perspective. If J Street really wanted to advance peace its leaders should have demanded, day in and day out, that the Muslim-Arab world, local and regional, accepted Israel's right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people, something the Arab have been refusing categorically to state since Israel's conception. And since this is of course the core reason for the Arab Israeli conflict, and since J Street refuses to tackle it, I question: Do the supporters of J Street actually accept Israel's right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people. P.S. This RIGHT is anchored in legal declarations, decisions and resolutions since 1917 and are based on the universally accepted right of all peoples, including that of the Jewish people, to national self-determination and independence, whose manifestation is Israel.
