Recently, J Street and JStreetPAC opened for business. They offer a Pro-Peace and Pro-Security alternative to the monolithic pro-Israel voices heard up to now in America.
Only recently did I realize that the American Jewish community is ten years or more behind the Israeli community when it comes to Middle East politics.
This winter, the JCPA (the policy coalition of the American Jewish community) voted in favor of a two-state solution. Israel came to that realization in 1993 & 1994 when it committed itself to the Oslo Accords! Even then, the main Orthodox organizations involved in JCPA voted against a two-state solution--the acknowledged policy of the Israeli government.
It is time for the voices for a strong Israel in safe & secure borders to speak up.
