Ironically, your next story on the website is "Israel is Americans' fifth favorite place" (http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1151390.html) a report on the enduring popularity of the Jewish state amongst Americans and the challenges that popularity faces amongst younger people and those to the left of center. What, if anything, is J Street likely to do to maintain or increase Israel's popularity? If it can't answer that question it can't justify the "pro-Israel" part of its self description. To maintain that J Street is "pro-Israel" because it lobbies the US government to pressure the Israeli to adopt policies that J Streets leadership think are in Israel's best interests (even though the Israeli electorate has rejected them) is also stretching the limits of the term "pro-Israel" beyond any meaning. It's hard to see why the Israeli government should be required to cooperate with an organization that is not -- objectively speaking -- pro-Israel.
