I agree with some of the points Phil Giraldi makes here, (and have been receiving some mail today on the question of what are the American interests in the whole deal). But I think J Street is a big and dynamic enough phenomenon that it could well burst whatever boundaries its most conservative backers hope to keep it in. I’ve posted something on mondoweiss that gives another reason why I think it’s very good for all of us. Shorter version: since much of American establishment culture is Judeo-Christian, J Street’s effort to excise the hypocritical from the Jewish social justice narrative is something that ought to benefit all Americans.
