ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In the article you published recently about the Anti-Defamation League’s opposition to the Ground Zero mosque, the writer refers to the group J Street as a “pro-Israel” organization. In printing the piece, you fell for J Street propaganda (“ADL critical of plans for mosque at Ground Zero,” Web, News, Sunday).

J Street is an extreme-left organization that can only be considered “pro-Israel” compared to Hamas or Hezbollah or to people with views similar to the ones held by those groups. J Street supports the Goldstone report, a United Nations-orchestrated whitewash of Arab terrorism that serves only to prevent Israel from defending itself against rockets and terror.

J Street is opposed to Israel’s West Bank separation fence, which was set up to thwart the numerous suicide bombers who killed hundreds of Israelis and clearly has served its purpose. J Street is a member of the radical Moveon.org left wing, which consists of a host of entities that would be happy with Israel’s destruction. In short, it is a farce for J Street to call itself a “pro-Israel” organization. It is advisable to be wary of the group’s propaganda.
