Former Defense Dep't intelligence analyst Pat Lang picks up a Philip Giraldi piece at antiwar.com, "The J Street Scam":
But the real problem with J Street is that it exists at all. Why should there be a new and powerful lobby in Washington composed of American citizens arguing for a special relationship with any country?... The United States already has too many special interest lobbies promoting policies that do absolutely nothing good for the American people. If Israel has become a rogue state, which it has, the problem must be resolved by the Israelis themselves and the diaspora Jews who believe that they have a stake in the outcome.
and then adds his two cents
Phil gets it right, as usual. IMO Liberal Zionism is a delusion used by progressive diaspora Jews to salve their consciences over Israeli rapacity and political manipulation while yet supporting these actions. pl
