J-Street is an anti-Israel and pro-Jihad hate group. J-Street has also done significant damage to Israel’s relationship with Jewish young people in the United States, by slandering Israel on college campuses. Israel should not allow a tour organized by J-Street into Israel.
“J Street setting up free Israel trips in competition with Birthright,” by Jeremy Sharon, Jerusalem Post, March 13, 2019:
J-Street has announced that it is establishing free trips to Israel for North American youth, in competition with Birthright, in order to give participants exposure to the Israel-Palestinian conflict and those involved in it.
The first trip, which will last nine days, will take place this July and applications are being taken starting Thursday.
Criticism has been directed at Birthright by the far-Left IfNotNow organization which claims that Birthright does not address the conflict sufficiently and that when it does, it does so in an unbalanced manner.
IfNotNow activists have disrupted several trips with public walkouts and J Street’s initiative appears to be a response to these claims and the demands of some North American Jews for free Israel trips to address the conflict.
The itinerary of J Street’s trip includes the kind of excursions and touring which Birthright’s trips do, but also includes two days devoted to the conflict with the Palestinians.
