On That Controversial J Street Video

This video – a compilation of interviews with some very left-wing, very anti-Israel attendees at the recent J Street conference in Washington, D.C. – gives an idea of what the atmosphere at the confab was like:

The video also created a bit of an uproar after Jewish Federation official William Daroff posted it on Twitter. Activists have begun accusing Daroff of joining in on conservative attacks against J Street, and Daroff has responded by saying that “to ignore that such views exist in the Jewish community (thankfully by a very small minority) does a great disservice to figuring out how we move the pro-Israel agenda forward.”

Daroff’s whole response is worth reading, and it can be found in the above link, at Washington Jewish Week (in the Comments section).
