Ayelet Shaked. Photo: Yoel Meltzer. – Member of Knesset Ayelet Shaked (HaBayit HaYehudi) slammed fellow Israeli Knesset members for attending the Washington, DC conference of J Street, which she called “Israel’s loudest critic.”

“Among [J Street’s] actions are the leading of a media campaign against the placing of sanctions on Iran by the U.S. Congress; denunciation of the Cast Lead operation and its definition as ‘an illegitimate and even criminal operation’; defining the takeover of the Marmara as ‘brutal and cruel’; support for the U.S. administration’s demand to freeze construction in Jerusalem; pressure on the U.S. administration not to veto the proposal by the Palestinian Authority to denounce Israel for construction in Judea and Samaria and more,” Shaked wrote on Facebook on Tuesday, Israel National News reported.

Addressing Knesset members such as Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Yitzhak Vaknin (Shas), and Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud), Shaked asked, “Are these the elements with whom you choose to identify?”

“Your participation in the conference grants legitimacy to extreme and unbalanced criticism of Israel,” she wrote.

  • Not only that when an Arab called fot the right of return ttJStreet broke out in thunderous applause.I don’t know if I’m allowed to give a link but Just put in your browser Jstreet applauds speaker who demands right of return.I’m sure you’ll find it.

    I think she’s correct and J street is like a fifth column working against Israel interests, the “well thinking” American Jews that have no idea what anti-Semitism is, probably mostly from California, and without a clue about the reality Israel faces. Israeli should give no legitimacy to this organization by attending their conferences. and if they chose to do, they should participate in order to criticize their position with concrete fact at the time of the conference. J Street is a real enemy within not to be taken lightly, they are shaping youth mind, they should be discredited as much as possible with facts.

    i love this gal, she constantly shows unpolluted common sense, so unlike other MKs. God bless her, and her ally Naftali Bennett!

  • The Anti-Israel J Street is and has been from it’s very inception against the Jewish State. There has been a misconception that Jews are a very smart people. Looking at how J Street is able to enlist the aid of Jews to their Anti-Israel cause is enough to dispel that myth.
