“It is astonishing that J Street, an organization that claims to be pro-Israel and pro-peace, could imply that it is ‘unhelpful’ to label those who oppose Israel’s existence as ‘antisemitic’ or that this is a ‘complicated political debate’ with some ‘nuance.’ There is no complication or nuance here whatsoever.” Arsen Ostrovsky, an international human rights lawyer and pro-Israel advocate.
Antisemitic attacks have reached record levels in the United States, due to the ascension of the anti-Israel Left. Sadly, that will not prevent the Democrat Party’s presidential candidates (along with leading Congressional Democrats) from addressing this anti-Israel (and pro-jihad) hate group.
Earlier this year the Democrat Party’s presidential candidates refused to attend the AIPAC conference. However, they will enthusiastically attend the J-Street conference, to appease the rapidly growing anti-Israel wing of the Democrat Party.
The Democrat Party’s embrace of anti-Israel hate groups is just another example of how far the Democrat Party has sunk. No rational American should support the Democrat Party in any way. #Jexodus!
Sanders, Klobuchar, Castro, Bennet and Buttigieg plan to attend J Street conference in DC
By JNS, October 18, 2019:
J Street has announced that Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and Mayor of South Bend, Ind. Pete Buttigieg are scheduled to attend its annual conference in Washington, D.C., later this month.
The 2020 candidates will sit with the hosts of the weekly podcast “Pod Save the World,” former White House National Security Council spokesperson Tommy Vietor and former U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes to “discuss the future of the U.S.-Israel relationship, their visions for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, their plans to combat the growing threat of white supremacy and more,” according to an email from J Street ahead of the conference, which will take place from Oct. 26-29.
JNS has reached out to the candidates for comment about their participation in the conference.
Aside from Bennet, the aforementioned candidates have said, if elected, that they would re-enter the United States in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which J Street supports and that U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from in May 2018, reimposing sanctions lifted under it along with enacting new financial penalties against the regime.
We're only 8️⃣ days out from the #JSt2019 National Conference!
