I had a funny feeling when I saw this New York Times headline:
As soon as I saw the headline I knew that J Street would be included in the story.
Except that J Street isn’t a pro-Israel organization. The Israeli government certainly doesn’t think so. Last year, Israel’s Minister of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Yuli Edelstein bluntly said, “They’re not pro-Israel, they’re not liberally Jewish. They’re anti-Israel.” (I should mention that when I was a teenager I campaigned for Edelstein’s release from a Soviet jail and had a chance meeting with him when I was in Israel in the summer of 1988.)
Just last week, J Street erroneously claimed the IDF had killed over a dozen Palestinians civilians when in fact the IDF had actually killed terrorists affiliated with Islamic Jihad and Popular Resistance Committees. While J Street scrubbed this claim from their website they did not issue a correction.
If the New York Times considers J Street a pro-Israel organization, it leaves me to wonder who they consider to be anti-Israel.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
