J-Street is one of those supposedly Jewish organizations that always takes the side of Fatah, Hamas, Hezbollah and other jew killing terrorist organizations whenever there is a bloody clash between one of their Jihad terror operations and Israeli military forces. The White House’s present occupant views J-Street with great favor since they agree with his terror appeasing policies.
J-Street has long claimed that despite receiving seed money from George Soros their ongoing operations were not funded by Soros or one of his proxies. Read on for the rest of the story.
Until the election of Barack Obama J-Street was generally ignored by mainstream Israel advocates because its views generally did not take into consideration the safety of Israel. Indeed many (including me) have called the group anti-Israel. President Obama gave the group legitimacy, because he agrees with their anti-Israel/ appease terror positions. When the President started inviting Jewish leaders to the White House, he took the head of the Zionist Organization of America off the list and added J-Street. In a report filed today by Eli Lake (with some research help from yours truly), we find that anther of the reasons that the President may be trying to legitimize J-Street is that its receiving major funding from George Soros.
J-Streets leader, Jeremy Ben-Ami has always claimed that Soros gave the group some start-up money, but has not received any money since. That was a lie.
