The video below was taken at J Street's recent conclave in Washington. The older man with the beard is Gershon Baskin. I don't know who any of the other interviewees are. If you recognize them, let me know.
I think it video is extremely revealing for what it says about the face of the so-called peace movement in Israel and the US. These people don't want peace. They want to wage war against Israel. The support waging economic war against Israel. They view the IDF as indistinguishable from Hamas. They believe that bad Jews control US foreign policy. They want to force Israel to its knees and coerce it into accepting a Palestinian state that will be in a state of war with Israel and whose borders will render Israel militarily indefensible.
These are not positions that are conducive to peace. They are positions that are conducive to the destruction of Israel.
