Well if that don't just beat all. I mean, you couldn't make this stuff up if you tried. J Street certainly is redefining what it means to be "pro Israel" aren't they?

He's been praised by CAIR, and questioned by both the National Review and the National Jewish DEMOCRATIC Council. The Zionist Organization of America is less than thrilled with him. A mini-scandal erupted when rumor had it he was being considered as Obama's DefSec.

Shmuel Rosner notes that when there was speculation of an Independent Bloomberg-Hagel ticket, a HAARETZ panel concluded:

But what about Hagel? Here the answer is clear: if Bloomberg takes Hagel with him, the panel will no longer think he is a candidate favorable to Israel. Five of the panelists said such move will make them very uneasy with Bloomberg. Three of the panelists said it would not matter - but not one said it would make Bloomberg more appealing.

THIS GUY is the keynote speaker?

Ed Lasky has a lot of meat to dish on Hagel in this piece he wrote at American Thinker at the time of the SecDef rumors, including:

...Senator Hagel often appears before Arab-American groups to air his views regarding the Middle East. Among the gems of wisdom: support for Israel shouldn't be automatic.

He has also joined a chorus of people surrounding Barack Obama who have made derogatory remarks about the so-called Jewish Lobby.

Says Hagel: "The political reality is that... the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here." This audio should be heard to truly gauge his own feelings.

Google "Chuck Hagel and Israel" for a history of his views.

Note his use of the term "Jewish Lobby". There are many millions of Americans who are not Jewish, who are also active in supporting the American-Israel relationship...

J Street Jive takes note, and even has an (imagined) invitation: Was That Paul Findley I Spotted Near the Buffet Table?

Take note of the Congressional guest list. Don't forget it.

Oh, and speaking of ZOA, Morton Klein says: J Street should rescind its invitation to Al-Marayati

Oh, did I mention John Kerry is one of the other keynotes?

An open letter to Ambassador Michael Oren Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street is complaining that Michael Oren won't be coming to J Street's conference next week. Poor thing. Dear Mr. Ben-Ami, Perhaps your plea would find more sympathy if your... Read More
