    In Israel we are blessed to be a Liberal Democracy. We are able to pick leaders that represent the majority's views. Groups like J-Street have nothing to do with us. They dress up Anti Israel rhetoric and activism in a more palatable manner so as to deceive and misrepresent. Such groups cannot accept the fact that the majority of Israelis despise their vision for Israel. As for the mayor of NYC, if he supports Israel then that support should be for the government of Israel. J-Street needs to wake up and realise that Israel rejected THEIR dysfunctional "vision" nearly two decades ago. Stop whining and trying to shove their blatantly partisan agenda- disguised as "support"- and get on with it. Good job Mr. De Blasio and one hopes that he continues to make wise choices when it comes to support of Israel.
