Paul Mirengoff has been tracking the sponsoring hosts of the gala first annual dinner/conference to be held by the phony pro-peace, genuinely anti-Israel organization J Street in posts here and here. Michael Goldfarb adds that J Street “has been hemorraghing sponsors as Senators and Congressmen learned of its true agenda. Just in the last few hours,” Goldfarb wrote yesterday, “Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and Reps. Michael McCaul (R-TX) and Leonard Boswell (D-IA), have asked to have their names removed from the host committee.”
Now what? Goldfarb reports that “J Street has played its hole card: Obama national security advisor Jim Jones has accepted an invitation to participate.” The Obama administration apparently does not tire of making clear its hostility to Israel and its elected government.
Goldfarb also reports that Jones will be joined by other speakers who might make him squirm if he sticks around to listen. Among the other honored speakers scheduled to attend the J Street conference is “poet” Josh Healey, author of such works as “Queer Intifada,” about his participation in the “Palestinian solidarity march,” in which he declares that “Guantanamo is Auschwitz” and that “Anne Frank is Matthew Shepard.”
UPDATE: Over at Hot Air, Dafydd Ab Hugh follows up on our J Street posts with an extended consideration of General Jones’s attendance at the J Street event that is posted here.
