J Street PAC

BBC News is reporting the formation of a new “liberal” Jewish PAC in the United States, intent on countering the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, a well known pro-Israel lobbying group with a power bordering on legendary.

J Street, as the group is called, claims AIPAC often lobbies for Israel to the point of hurting American interests. I would certainly agree with this claim, as Islamic terrorists often cite our government’s support for Israel as a major point of discontent. Perhaps if the United States pursued more agressively a two-state solution, the attack on the USS Cole and other similar incidents might not have happened. J Street claims to be pushing for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.  I’m sure this will go over well with the crazies(Don’t forget this guy!)

The article points out, and rightfully so, that this group will likely be accused of anti-Israel/anti-Semite leanings. One thing’s for sure, J Street has a massive PR effort ahead of it. Ralph Nader, for what it’s worth, supports and intends to pursue a two-state solution to this conflict, citing it as the majority opinion of both nations.
