To what effect? Time will only tell how effective a lobbying organization J Street will be. But it has already demonstrated that AIPAC, AJC, UCJ, the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations and the rest of the Zionist lobby do not speak for many American Jews. For an 18 month-old organization to have a quarter of Congress at its coming out party is also rather astounding. There is much more support for moderate views than the "mainstream Jewish leaders" want to admit. Another effect of JStreet may be to move some of these other groups to more moderate positions.
