    We saw how the Israeli government and establishment dealt this week dealt with J Street and we hear how the voices of the zionist establishment in the US is out to gut it and portray it as an organisation that is not working for Israel's best interests. Unfortunately, the result in all of this well orchestrated policy of exclusion has been the undermining of any chance of an alternative voice being heard. Many Jews are disengaging because they see clearly the attempts being made, and until now successful, in undercutting any influence J Street might have on policy. Israel under this government, and the winds that blow in that country seem to be most content when they are assured that "kol haolam negdeynu" is operating. They need this sense of isolating to prove to their cohorts that they and they alone are right and everyone else is wrong. There is no group or sector within the zionist camp that has the power to change the narrative, change it in a way that policy will be affected. Zionism today has two goals and two goals only and both conflict with values of democracy and human rights:taking the maximum amount of land away from Palestinians and colonising that land with the maximum number of Jews while displacing a greater number of Arabs. That is racism and cannot be made into anything other than what it obviously is.
