J Street Boasting of Defeating Israel’s Friends, But its Relevance Is Questionable

Given President Obama's win and victories of many of their candidates, a reasonable morning-after position for J Street would be quiet satisfaction, or even – why not? – gleeful rejoicing. But J Street, which has rarely met a critic of Israel it didn't like, instead tried to promote itself as an integral part of the campaign, a driving wind propelling Democratic victories. So eager to claim a starring role, J Street released details of several exit polls they commissioned which, upon examination, tell far more about how little J Street matters.

Adelson Suing the National Jewish Democratic Council for Defamation

Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson's lawyers sent a warning letter to the NJDC and to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee last week, after both groups had called on Republicans not to take money from Adelson following an allegation by a fired employee that the billionaire had approved of prostitution at his facilities in Macau, China.

NJDC Removes Adelson Petition

The National Jewish Democratic Council, citing peace among Jewish groups, has taken down a petition calling on Republicans not to accept money from Sheldon Adelson, stating: "…we regret the concern that this campaign has caused.

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: Why a Jewish Democratic Leader Attacked Sheldon Adelson

Ordinarily, an attack by the political hack of one party about a mega-contributor to another party would not merit attention or comment.

Alan Dershowitz: National Jewish Democratic Council Doesn’t Speak for Me on Adelson

I am a Democrat and do not agree with many of Sheldon Adelson's political views, but I think it's outrageous for the National Jewish Democratic Council to level unfounded allegations against Adelson.

Over the past several years the editorial page of The New York Times has taken on an increasingly desperate tone.
