This is no surprise. J Street is funded by hard-left antisemites such as George Soros and Muslims who are hostile to Israel. J Street’s tax returns and J-Street-PAC’s Federal Election Commission filings show that J-StreetPAC received enormous funding from dozens of Arab and Muslim contributors, many with ties to Arab-American organizations and pro-Iranian advocacy groups that are hostile to Israel. J Street has also defended woman-beater Rep. Hakim Muhammad (aka Keith Ellison), despite his associations with the fervent anti-Semite and Holocaust minimizer Louis Farrakhan. J-Street has also embraced Bernie Sanders, despite his anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel.

In their statement about withdrawing aid, the State Department criticized the fact that the United States contributed over 30 percent of the agency’s funds, saying, “We made it clear that the United States was no longer willing to shoulder the very disproportionate share of the burden of UNRWA’s costs that we had assumed for many years.”
Following this announcement, a spokesman for Abbas said, “The consecutive American decisions represent a flagrant assault against the Palestinian people and a defiance of U.N. resolutions. Such a punishment will not succeed to change the fact that the United States no longer has a role in the region and that it is not a part of the solution.”…
