Tough Questions for J Street

As the Oct. 25 J Street conference approaches, Lenny Ben-David asks tough questions of J Street founder Jeremy Ben-Ami. These questions, and other concerns about an organization purporting to be pro-Israel, have gone unasked by media outlets like Ha'aretz, which has recently run, not one, but two articles about Israeli ambassador Michael Oren's unanswered rsvp to J Street's conference invitation.

The New York Times' feature on J Street also went for puff instead of tough.

"Michael Oren ducks the question of J Street" reads the Ha'aretz headline. Let's see if Jeremy Ben-Ami also ducks the many questions surrounding J Street.

In the court of public opinion there is such a thing as 'guilt by association'. If Ben-Ami had any part in Fenton's Qatari financed, anti-Israel campaign he has no business claiming J-Street is pro Israel.

I'm waiting for Ben-Ami's libel suit. ... still waiting.
