  • Elder of Ziyon

I tweeted on Wednesday morning:


Actually, it is even worse. J-Street's Jeremy Ben Ami lost his mind.

In the essay he wrote the Morning After, Ben-Ami says:
Today is, for many of us, an incredibly sad and difficult day.

We woke up yesterday with high hopes, only to go to bed feeling grief, anger and despair.

These emotions are real, and they are raw.

We remain convinced that Donald Trump is beyond a doubt the wrong choice for president.

Nonetheless, we respect American democracy and the choice the people have made.
This is rich coming from someone who has no respect for Israeli democracy and the choices the Israelis have made. He spends his entire existence trying to subvert the will of the Israeli people. Not exactly respectful of democracy, is he?

But then Ben-Ami says:
Day one of the Trump administration will bring serious challenges to core elements of J Street’s agenda. Many Republicans have urged, for instance, that the Iran nuclear agreement, which has made the US and Israel safer and helped avoid a potential war, be voided on day one.

Our nation’s 50-year commitment to the two-state solution will likely be called into question early on, with advocates of Israeli annexation of the West Bank given a seat at the national security table.
The US has supported a Palestinian state since 1966? That's news!

Because the first official support for a Palestinian state came on June 24, 2002, by someone who is hardly a J-Street hero, George W. Bush, when he said " My vision is two states, living side by side in peace and security."

Bill Clinton said something similar same in a speech in 2001, but not in the context of official policy, saying "There can be no genuine resolution to the conflict without a sovereign, viable Palestinian state that accommodates Israelis' security requirements and the demographic realities." Meaning - Israel could annex the large settlement blocs, which J-Street opposes.

Ronald Reagan said explicitly, "The United States will not support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza."

Ben-Ami has always been a liar by pretending that J-Street is pro-Israel and that its version of a two-state solution is what American Jews want.

But now he is lying about basic American policy, too.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
