I just read J Street's strong statements about their concern about the Goldstone Report and their support of the bill by several Congressmen to suppress it as harmful to Israel. This well-researched report is by a respected supporter of Israel who found the brutality involved in the inavasion of Gaza broke international and military law.
I wrote to J Street that I was no longer a supporter of their organization, since their head-in-the-sand attitude helped no one, including Israel, nor made it remotely possible to pursue peace in the Middle East.
Other Jewish peace organizations have been very outspoken about Israeli policies toward the Palestinian people over the years, but J Street seems to be a mouthpiece for the AIPAC.
I wonder what the young people quoted in the article think of this kind of censorship and how it correlates with their ideals.
