The audacity to post a job on Jewish Jobs Weekly today is typical of J Street's anti-Israel propaganda cloaked in a pro-Israel pitch. I would like to know who will be paying the salary for this position? Follow the money! And are they really in Obama's pocket, or is it more of their rhetoric? I don't want to believe that Obama is affiliated with them. Say it isn't so!
If you believe this, I have a bridge to sell you:
