J-Street has been running a Twitter campaign asking people to say that “BibiDoesn’tSpeakForMe.” As evidence, a couple of days ago, J-Street retweeted this:
Where did these numbers come from that J-Street interprets as meaning that Jewish Americans are out of step with Netanyahu?
It came from a poll that J-Street commissioned last October. Here was the question:
The question was asking whether people would support a solution that ensured that Iran could never, ever build nuclear weapons.
Guess what? Bibi Netanyahu would support that too!
When J-Street pretends that Netanyahu doesn’t want to see a negotiated solution and wants to start a war for no good reason, they reveal not only their own contempt for the intelligence of Americans, but also their willingness to twist facts for their own political ambitions.
In that same poll, J-Street asked Americans how warmly they would rate a series of individuals and parties.
Guess who came out most favorably?
Yup – it was Netanyahu! Higher than Obama, higher than Hillary, higher even than Jon Stewart!
It’s too bad that J-Street’s founde wasn’t listed on this survey, because it would show exactly how much more aligned liberal American Jews are with Binyamin Netanyahu than they are with the anti-democratic, dishonest Jeremy Ben-Ami.
It might be time for a new ad campaign.
