For some reason, I'm on J-Street's mailing list, and I received this:

One-stater Jack Kingston qualified for a run-off in Georgia's Republican Senate primary and is now one step closer to winning the Republican nomination.

Kingston was a member of last Congress' infamous "One State Caucus." He's on the record urging Israel to annex the West Bank and forgo its Jewish and democratic character. Now's the time to dig deep and do everything in our power to prevent Jack Kingston from taking the oath of office next January.

Jack Kingston's ideas are dangerous for Israel.

Not only has he pushed Israel to annex the West Bank, but Kingston also called the Obama Administration's two state diplomacy "misguided". And he even claimed that the President had "turned his back on Israel" by pursuing a diplomatic deal to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
So I decided to look up when Kingston said he supported Israel's annexation of Judea and Samaria.

Here is the legislation he co-sponsored, from 2011:

Supporting Israel's right to annex Judea and Samaria in the event that the Palestinian Authority continues to press for unilateral recognition of Palestinian statehood at the United Nations.

In other words, he supports Israel's right to act unilaterally if the PLO acts unilaterally first.

But does he support a one-state solution? Not at all. Here's another piece of legislation he co-sponsored in 2011, HR 268:

Reaffirms support for a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict resulting in two states, a democratic Jewish state of Israel and a democratic Palestinian state living in peace and mutual recognition.

States that any Palestinian unity government must forswear terrorism, accept Israel's right to exist, and reaffirm previous agreements made with Israel.

Opposes any attempt to establish or seek recognition of a Palestinian state outside of an agreement negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians.

Urges Palestinian leaders to: (1) cease efforts at circumventing the negotiation process, including through a unilateral declaration of statehood or by seeking recognition of a Palestinian state from other nations or the United Nations (U.N.); and (2) resume direct negotiations with Israel.

Supports the Administration's opposition to a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.

Calls upon the Administration to lead a diplomatic effort to oppose a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state and to oppose recognition of a Palestinian state by other nations within the U.N. and in other international forums prior to a final agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

Affirms that Palestinian efforts to circumvent direct negotiations will harm U.S.-Palestinian relations and will have implications for U.S. assistance programs for the Palestinians and the Palestinians Authority (PA).

Reaffirms the U.S. statutory requirement precluding assistance to a PA that includes Hamas unless that PA and all its ministers accept Israel's right to exist and all prior agreements and understandings with the United States and Israel.
This resolution reflects the broad Israeli and Zionist consensus. And it supports two states.

J-Street is lying. As usual.

I cannot find any statement of support for this resolution on the J-Street website. I suspect that they were against it.

So who is pro-Israel again?

I strongly suspect that J-Street lies about most of the pro-Israel politicians they oppose.
