Sixth and last of some assorted footnotes to the preceding

Just a few folks in which some of you might be interested.

Jewish Voice for Peace says it "provides a voice for Jews and allies who believe that peace in the Middle East will be achieved through justice and full equality for both Palestinians and Israelis."

The Jewish Peace Fellowship, established in 1941, is "a nondenominational Jewish organization committed to active nonviolence as a means of resolving conflict, drawing on Jewish traditional sources within the Torah, the Talmud and contemporary peacemaking sages like Martin Buber, Judah Magnes and Abraham Joshua Heschel."

J Street says it is "the political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans." It is a centrist group but serves as a counterweight to AIPAC in the halls and alleys of DC.

Soros donating to J Street makes it all even more disappointing. Not that he hasn't been lousy before (Haitian sweatshops...grr)

Disappointing because he donated to J Street or because he donated to J Street as opposed to one of the others?

I'm annoyed he donated to J street. Granted, they supported a settlement freeze, but still.. gah.
