Recognizing J Street for What It Really Is

Jim HutchensBy Jim Hutchens

Harvey Schwartz said: "J Street is an American [Jewish] organization whose purpose is to vociferously criticize Israel and its policies (as well as lobby for the adoption of policies which are contrary to its best interests) before the US government."

Most American-Israelis I have spoken to recognize J Street for what it really is - a radical, far left organization funded and supported by radical forces. A true wolf in sheep's clothing. Indeed, J Street's executive director, Jeremy Ben-Ami just confirmed that truth by declaring at the J Street conference,

"we are here to redefine and expand the very concept of being pro-Israel."
Israel's greatest enemies could not have articulated it any better."

God says:
"A malicious man disguises himself with his lips, but in his heart he harbors deceit. Though his speech is charming, do no believe him, for seven abominations fill this heart. His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly." (Proverbs 26:24-26).
The Jerusalem Connection says: Of all people who should support the Biblical basis for Israel, one would expect a consensus among the Jewish people as a whole. Sadly, such is not the case. Liberal Jews continue to demonstrate either their ignorance of God’s covenant promises to Israel or their adamant refusal to accept them. Is it any wonder God has decreed only a remnant to survive.
"As a shepherd saves from the loin’s mouth only two leg bones and a piece of an ear, so will the Israelites be saved." (Amos 3:12).
Meanwhile it is the pro-Israel Christian who will continue to be the most steadfast supporter of Israel and the Jewish people.
