Welcome, J-Street

There’s a new pro-Israel, pro-Peace lobby on the block called J-Street. Watch the trailer.

I, for one, would hope to see some new life breathed into the Quartet process, which the Secretary General’s former representative to the Middle East admitted was just a “side-show.” But so long as rejectionist voices dominate the discourse, the Quartet’s job as a negotiation-promoting foursome is made much more difficult. Here’s hoping J-Street can inject some much needed sanity, compassion, and rationality into the debate.
