Jim Wall on the National J-Street Convention in Washington DC

October 26, 2009

Jim Wall is covering the national meeting of J-Street in Washington DC in his blog which brings together some twenty liberal and left Jewish Organization into what they hope to be a left (although they don’t like to use the word) alternative to AIPAC. This meeting is getting national attention. Wall remarks on how the Obama Administration sent a formal high level delegate to participate in the conference, while the Israeli government has opted out of the meeting. The historical analysis of the birth and evolution of AIPAC here is well done. There are among the 1200 representatives at the meeting, a number from Colorado. I will give my impressions on this meeting later after the dust settled. But briefly, it appears to be a historic meeting. We’ll see.
