    This particular situation is pretty outrageous when one thinks about it for even a brief moment:

    The Obama administration decides to deliberately select a “Jewish” organization to help sell its Iran deal, selects J-Street – the administration’s most ardent source of “Jewish” organizational support – as the organization to target, and assists/encourages Ploughshares in directing over half a million dollars to J-Street for said purpose.

    Now THAT’S a sophisticated “spin” machine!
