Former AIPAC aide calls J Street fleas and liars

on 18 Comments

Josh Block used to work at AIPAC (and before that for Edward Kennedy). He just left the organization and, freed from institutional restraint, teed off on J Street, and J Street knocked him back. And now Block has gone back after J Street in a note to Adam Kredo of Washington Jewish Week. There’s a lot of vicious invective here that I pass along because it is so repulsive. I wonder what Block is afraid of?

a group proven to be as duplicitous, deceitful and outright dishonest they have been exposed to be….

Virtually every reporter in the last three years who has spoken to Jstreet has been lied to. How many members of Congress have gotten the same treatment? These aren’t questions that come from nowhere. They are the direct result of Jstreet’s conduct and pattern of deception….

when you lie down with dogs, you get fleas. You can kill the fleas, but the treatment is unpleasant and it’s not cost free. The question candidates in competitive races will be asking themselves is this: IS it worth it to lie down with dogs if all you get is fleas!? The answer, I predict, will increasingly be no, it’s not worth it. Unless, of course, you’re actually not pro-Israel.
