J Street: a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

In Israel-Palestine, Middle East, The United States of America, Washington D.C. on October 29, 2009 at 8:21 am

“On many of the specific issues, J Street is AIPAC lite.  It accepts an Israeli state based on religion, not on equal rights for all citizens, specifically supporting the apartheid-like right of any Jew to “return” without affording similar rights to Christians or Muslims who resided in Palestine before 1948. Its Executive Director Jeremy Ben-Ami calls a one-state solution to Israel/Palestine with all citizens having the same rights a “nightmare.”” – Philip Giraldi – antiwar.org

I suppose the one-state solution in South Africa – with all citizens enjoying the same rights – is also a “nightmare”. Israel-Palestine is already one state, with the Israeli government effectively controlling all land and people between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordon. God forbid they should have equal rights.
