J Street Responds to “The J Street Challenge”

February 19, 2014

A movie currently circulating entitled “The J Street Challenge” contains numerous inaccuracies, distortions and outright lies. Most of these false charges are years old and have been debunked long ago.

We remain focused on our mission of mobilizing support in the United States for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement based on a two-state solution and on answering Secretary of State John Kerry’s call to build a “great constituency for peace.”

We are also eager to advocate for our positions in public forums. We have engaged in many debates in the past, including with some of our critics who were interviewed in this film, and stand ready to do so again in the future.

We do not intend to waste our time or energy preparing a detailed response to these smears. For answers to some common misunderstandings about J Street, please check the Myths and Facts page on our website.
