Extremism in our community

December 27, 2012

We have a real problem in the American debate on Israel. It’s the same problem blocking any sort of budget deal or common sense gun safety measures.

It seems as if those on the extremes always dominate the debate, drown out the sensible middle and prevent progress.

More and more journalists are calling it out: Did you see Tom Friedman in the New York Times this week1 or long-time political commentator Jim Besser yesterday2?

With your help, J Street is starting to change all that.

We’re building an effective, moderate political voice that both supports Israel as a democratic home for the Jewish people and the right of the Palestinian people to their independence.

Please consider helping us combat the extremes that politicize the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with an end-of-year contribution today.

Here’s how we’re making a difference:

We need your help to give the sensible center on our issue real voice and real power.

Please chip in and help us meet our new $150,000 goal.
