J-Street Unmasked – The End of Liberal Zionism: CODEPINK Congress Capitol Calling Party

Tuesday, Oct 17 Capitol Calling Party

Join CODEPINK Congress as we educate, activate and mobilize for peace legislation!

Ever since J-Street’s founding in 2007, the  organization has promoted itself as the liberal alternative to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). For left-leaning politicians fearful of AIPAC’s wrath, aligning with J-Street provided insulation from Zionist primary election challenges; lawmakers could be mildly critical of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians, yet still profess allegiance to the State of Israel as a Jewish ethno-state even if it came at the expense of millions of Palestinians.

Not so anymore, not with Israel’s genocide in Gaza, its deliberate targetting of civilians livestreamed on our cell phones.

The mask is off as we witness a continuation of the Nakba (catastrophe) or ethnic cleansing of Palestine that began in 1947-48 when Zionist militias destroyed over 500 Palestinian villages and expelled 750,000 Palestinians from their homes to make way for the State of Israel.

Join us for a discussion of the end of liberal Zionism and the ascendant movement of anti-Zionist Jews demanding decolonization.
