Pro-Israel, pro-peace lobby launched

J Street, a new ‘pro-Israel, pro-peace’ lobby, has been launched in the US.

The goal of the lobby is to “promote meaningful American leadership to end the Arab-Israeli and Palestinian-Israel conflicts peacefully and diplomatically” and a “new direction” in American foriegn policy. It is an attempt to counter American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and to give a voice to what most American Jews think about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

J Street has prominent American and Israeli supporters and Prospect Magazine has some more background.
