J Street and the Mullahs, in Agreement

Here’s a telling quote from a story in today’s Financial Times, quoting J Street co-founder and intellectual leading light Daniel Levy:

And Mr Obama dropped a hint that he understood the Arab world’s concerns at Israel’s nuclear weapons status. “I understand those who protest that some countries have weapons that others do not,” Mr Obama said. Daniel Levy, a former Israeli government official, who is now at the New America Foundation, said: “Might this be a kind of: ‘Yes – we acknowledge there is a double standard here regarding the Israeli nuclear issue, and eventually we will get to that too’?”

So Levy agrees with the Mullahs in that there is a “double standard” between Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons and Iran’s pursuit of them. Remind me again how J Street is either “pro-Israel” or “pro-peace?”
