J Street Pressures Congresswoman over Donations

The left wing J Street activist group is pressuring US House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen to refuse donations from Zionist philanthropist Irving Moskovitz. Moskovitz has helped Jews return to eastern Jerusalem with his extensive land purchases. J Street has accused Moskovitz of helping Jews move into “Arab neighborhoods” and thereby ruining the chance for a Palestinian state via his actions.

J Street itself has been heavily criticized for receiving funding from Arab and Muslim groups.
