Good to know there are people like that out there.

Just because someone calls themselves “pro-Israel” doesn’t necessarily make it so.

In the end, J Street is a great “hope and change” alternative to real Israel lobbying. Hope for terrorists and change that reduces the support for the only real democracy in the Middle East.

Right, because nobody can be pro-Israel if they don't agree with the other pro-Israel lobby's nationalistic, jingoistic, propagandistic position.

Isreal isn't a real democracy. It disenfranchises and oppresses millions of people. If you think it's that great of a country, you live there and love it. But you know what? We who live in this real democracy have every right to question and challenge our nation's uncritical support of a nation that regularly commits heinous human rights abuses.
