IPT Examines J Street’s Unusual “Support” for Israel

J Street, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group, has an unusual way of showing it “is the political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans.”

It has called for direct negotiations with Hamas, a designated terrorist group committed to the Jewish state’s destruction. It partners with aggressively anti-Israel groups which advocate an economic, political and academic boycott of Israel. And it partners with rabidly anti-Israel speakers and groups in the name of “open debate.”

The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) examines J Street’s record in a new dossier. Read the full report here. J Street was formed in 2008 as a liberal counterpart to the American Israel Public Affairs Council (AIPAC).
