that JStreet cannot stand simply as a pro-Israel, pro-peace organization; it must be a 'lobby' and 'compete' with AIPAC. Nonsense. I think that JStreet has definitely hit a resonance with American Jews who are not regulars at political fundraisers, who do not have the money to plant trees in Israel, who vote Democratic and who do not bandy about nasty epithets about the President of the United States. This, of course, distinguishes JStreet sympathizers from AIPAC and the "Commentary" crowd of plutocrats, yet I get no sense that JStreet aspires to lobby for Israel, as AIPAC does. How can it compete for something it is not going to do? In fact, it seems to want to lobby for the majority of American Jews who break out in a rash at the policies of the current government of Israel. We feel that present policies will destroy Israel, and we oppose them.
