Worst move ever? J Street opposes Palestinian statehood
(+973) -- by Noam Sheizaf --
J Street, the pro-peace Jewish lobbying group, has decided to join the US Administration in opposing the Palestinian’s bid for statehood at the UN. JTA reports:
“We believe that everything J Street stands for and what we do needs to promote the two-state solution and not just two states,” Jeremy Ben-Ami, the director of the dovish pro-Israel group, told JTA on Wednesday.This is probably the worst move J Street has ever made. While past errors were political ones that could be expected from a young organization that has taken upon itself a tremendous task, this mistake is a moral one. It might bring short term gains – I am not sure, but I’m no expert on Washington politics – but in the long run, it’s likely to do more harm than good...
Palestinian statehood should come about through negotiations with Israel and not unilaterally, he said.
Ben-Ami said the group backs Obama administration plans to veto any U.N. Security Council resolution that would establish such a state and has urged Palestinian leaders to defer plans to introduce such a resolution later this month.
Having failed to get Netanyahu to seriously move to end the occupation or even simply stop the construction projects for Jews inside the territory of the future Palestinian state, the administration is now blocking the only diplomatic alternative the Palestinians have. Moving the debate to the U.N. is the route a Palestinian leadership has taken in its quest to gain freedom for its people. This is a non-violent effort, which turns to the international community through its most respected organization. How can progressive forces deny it? How can they keep on declaring that they wish to end the occupation, when they form a line with the neo-cons and the Israeli right against Palestinian leadership? These very questions led twenty Israeli intellectuals–representing a group of several hundreds–to meet with Abu Mazen this week and declare their support for his diplomatic effort.
Dictating the Palestinian path to independence as a pre-condition to dealing with them is the mistake the Israeli left has done again and again, usually with the help of the United States. The administration is repeating it now, and J Street follows...MORE...LINK

The only reasonable and long-term solution to this Judeofascist-centered mess is for Christian and Western civilization to enter into an agreement with Islamic civilization to slowly squeeze these evil Zionists, Globalists, neocons and liberal fascists out of power, out of government, out of respectable society…
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why anyone who isn’t either part of their racket, complicit in their racket or somehow profiting from their racket would want to come to the aid of any of them. But the stiff-necked tenacity, determination and stubbornness of the Judeofascists, their collaborators, and their defenders makes me believe that the lot of them may in some way be “channeling” Satan or some other form of metaphysical evil.
How any sane person can have sympathy and “compassion” for metaphysical evil is truly beyond my ability to grasp. All I can say is that no authentic Christian, person of good will, or advocate of Western civilization would ever give this evil cabal the time of day, or even a second thought in terms of giving them the bum's rush into the exits of history. Indeed, winos and bums deserve more sympathy and compassion than these evil creatures.
