The sure sign that Soros Street is kaput? Jeffrey Goldberg, who has defended the group’s bona fides, now calls it “ostensibly” pro-Israel. Even worse, he proclaims, in reference to the apparent retreat of the Obami from a blame-Bibi maneuver in the event of a collapse of the non-peace talks, that “AIPAC has won. J Street has lost.”
Or, to put it differently, those who argued from the get-go that J Street was not a pro-Israel group at all but rather an anti-Israel one masquerading as the opposite, adopting the language and position of Israel’s enemies and working in concert with overtly anti-Israel figures and groups (e.g., NIAC), have won. The administration, which cozied up to to the faux-Zionist organization, Soros Street’s defenders, and the politicians who took money from Soros Street, have lost. Big time.
