0 Moderate Jewish voice backs Palestine

Members plan to visit US cities to gain support for a two-state solution and an Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 borders

The ‘J Street’, a “moderate” American-Jewish organisation is a rising voice in the United States that supports Israel, but is completely opposed to the far-right coalition ruling its affairs. This organisation is behind a new Jewish lobby established to counter the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (Aipac), the most influential Zionist lobby in America.
‘J Street’ believes that the current extreme trend of Zionism in Israel is totally in contradiction with historical Jewish values that stood against apartheid, fascism and ethnic-cleansing which are the very policies of Israel today. Sounding a note of sharp pessimism, ‘J Street’, believes that the ruling coalition in Israel if let to prevail, will sooner or later destroy Israel and will negatively affect the very existence of Jews around the world. This lobby group supports President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy based upon the premise of a two-state-solution; an independent Palestinian state and an independent Israeli state. ‘J Street’ believes that such a solution would really serve the national security and interests of all concerned especially the Americans, otherwise America, Israel and all Jews would be in dire danger if the current Likud policies are allowed to prevail in the Middle East.
The Palestinian plan to seek recognition of a Palestinian state at the United Nations stems from the fact that it is absolutely impossible to reach an agreement with the present Israeli Likud government. It also points to the current Israeli policies involving annexation of more Palestinian land for Israeli colonies, and its insistence on ‘a one united Jerusalem under Jewish rule’ as well as insistence on obtaining Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish State.
