...involved in the affairs of the nation-state of the Jewish people, Israel. Indeed, Israel as a state and all Israeli posters here have welcome such an involvement, even to the point of inviting Jews from abroad to ascend to Israel so as to take an active part in the life of all Israelis, including political life. Thus, the question as you pose it is simply not fair. But J Street, unlike hundreds of other Diaspora Jewish organizations through which Jews can and are involved, is more interested in working against Israel's elected government instead of working with it. And to work alongside Israel's government one may be critical of course. But such criticism can and should be expressed directly to the governing bodies of Israel instead of attempting to embarrass Israel, its governing institution and in turn the Jewish people of Israel. When that is done, this is the reaction that you see here: A rejection of J Street.
