Trump’s pick of Friedman for Israel Amb is anathema to values that underlie US-Israel relationship. We’ll fight this with all we’ve got.

And what, exactly, does J-Street have?
They no longer have a White House that artificially boosts them up deliberately to split the US Jewish community and make it appear that far more Jews oppose Israel’s policies than actually do.
All they have are the anti-Israel members of Congress that they gave money to that happened to win despite J-Street’s attempts to make the Iranian nuclear deal a positive reason to vote for them.
I was struck by this statement that J-Street made in reaction to the appointment of John Bolton as Deputy Secretary of State:
Bolton has shown little understanding for the challenges that Israel faces if it is to remain a secure and democratic homeland for the Jewish people.
