J Street: The Political Home for Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace Americans
Israelis who lend their voice and support to J Street in its mission to protect the future of Israel
J Street’s Israeli Supporters are high profile, mainstream voices from the political, security, diplomatic, business, arts and academic communities who know the future of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state lies in a two-state solution. These notable voices are helping to shift the conversation in Israel away from the status quo and towards a solution to the conflict.
Former Consul General to New York
"I think that without a comprehensive peace plan in the Middle East it will be very difficult to deal with the Iran issue so I do welcome the thinking of the current administration in Washington that everything has to be addressed on a regional basis."
Former Deputy Minister of Defense
"I think that time is not playing in our favor… My father used to say fifteen years ago, or even more, that we have a very narrow window of opportunity to create peace treaties, to sign peace treaties with our neighbors."
Singer/Songwriter & Peace Activist
"INTERVIEWER: As somebody who is pro-peace, pro-Israel, Israeli, as yourself, what would you say to Americans and specifically to American Jews about speaking out on this issue? BROZA: If you care you should speak out."
Writer & Peace Activist
"I want peace because it will solve our security problems, our economic problems, it’s very important... And the Palestinians should have a chance to create their own nation, to build up a nation... But first and foremost, I want to have peace because it will allow Israel, for the first time in modern history to live the life we deserve to live and to be able to explore everything that is in our potential as a people."
Former head of Israeli Navy and Shin-Bet
"I met J Street people in America and when they came to visit Israel and I believe that their vision of Israel is my vision… We have to choose between the concept of Israel as a Jewish democracy or settlements all over the country."
Deputy National Security Advisor
"We have to make peace with the Palestinians, we have to create a Palestinian state and then we’ll be a democratic, Jewish state here in Israel… We have to realize that we cannot do it alone… and the only country that we can trust with our security and other concerns that we have, is the United States."
Singer/Songwriter & Peace Activist
"I’m proud to join forces with J Street, in their support for a two-state solution, coexistence, and peace for Israel."
Founder & Lead Singer, Hadag Nahash Hip-Hop Group
"Everyone has so much to gain, so much to benefit from the resolution of this war, this 100 year war… I hope to see it in my lifetime that it ends but I’ll settle for my kids’ lifetime."
Brigade Commander in Gaza Strip
"I believe that it’s better for Israel to have a peace agreement with the Arab world, with the Palestinians, maybe as part of the Arab League Peace Initiative, than to keep here and there a few square kilometers in the territories."
Former Ambassador to Egypt & Jordan
"We want to end the conflict, we accept the two-state solution, we feel that settlements are an obstacle to peace and we would like to see our government working with the U.S. government in order to reach that target."
Chief Negotiator for the Oslo Accords
"Everybody knows how this will end. Everyone knows the solution. More or less along the lines outlined at the time of President Clinton… So let’s have the courage to take these decisions and create the peace for our children that they deserve so much, and for the Arab children as well."
