J Street Education Fund, Inc.
November 14, 2009
J Street has been a breath of fresh air when it comes to Israel's relations with the US and the middle east. I helped them prepare for their conference doing menial tasks, however it gave me an insight into how hard everyone there works and how passionate they are about making clear J Street's goals to the public. I was impressed by the speaker diversity and notoriety they secured for the conference, as well as the high attendance and all with a limited staff. I followed the conference via streaming coverage on the web. The conference gave a feeling of hope about the future of the middle east after seeing J Street's solidarity with President Obama's views in that region. J Street is mobilizing the public, giving us a megaphone so we can compete with the conservative Israel lobby that has too long controlled policy on Capitol Hill.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Substantially help diffuse tensions between Israel and its neighbors by pushing a pro peace approach so that it is becomes a common goal in America
