In my latest piece for Mondoweiss, I look at the possibility that J Street is moving to replace AIPAC as the dominant pro-Israel voice in the Democratic party. Despite the fact that the liberal Zionist group has some positions that are directly at odds with the Palestine solidarity movement and that has caused them to lock horns in the past, I demonstrate why this is an opportunity for the rights-based, one-state, and BDS-supporting activists and groups.

THE AMERICAN LEFT AND ISRAEL
An excellent, albeit long, lecture by journalist Eric Alterman on the split between American Jews and Israeli Jews.
He discusses the core difference in which American Jews identify Judaism as a religion and Israeli Jews idenitfy Judaism as a nationality. His new book entitled “We Are Not One” is scheduled for publication in November 2022.
