Most disturbing, despite strong support by most Israeli and American Jews for Israel’s campaign last January to stop Hamas rocket attacks, J Street opposed the operation. It has even challenged the adoption of more robust sanctions against Iran.
All these issues have enhanced relevance in view of the fact that J Street receives tens of thousands of dollars in donations from dozens of Arab and Muslim Americans, according to the Federal Election Commission filings cited by the Jerusalem Post, as well as money from individuals connected to Palestinian and pro-Iranian advocacy groups.
J Street continues to relentlessly display its support for the Palestinian cause. We urge the group to start doing the right thing by rescinding its invitation to Salam Al-Marayati and ceasing to accept donations from those hostile to Israel.
