J Street Leader: Our Job is to “Move Jews” to Support Washington Politicians

Checklist

Photo Credit: Z STREET

Carinne Luck, J Street’s Vice President for Campaigns, and the person who sent out the mass email announcing the new J Street political initiative , is on video explaining to J Street members that what “the Administration” and people “on the Hill” want from J Street is for them to “move American Jews” towards their views, and so that is what J Street spends most of its resources doing.

Got that? The goal of J Street is not to represent American Jews on the left, but is instead “to move American Jews” to the left and to the Administration’s/friends on the Hill’s point of view, and to “provide them with cover.”  And so J Street is “spending the bulk of its resources” doing that. See the video here. There are a few other nuggets, but we think admitting they take direction from elected officials, and that they are field operatives instead of constituency representatives, clears up the debate about who and what they are.  The video was taped and put on YouTube by J Street, but was later removed from that site by them when Pro-Israel Media recognized what it really meant and began to share it.
