Jan 27 – The Middle East Conflict and U.S. (self) Interest



The speakers at our first meeting of 2013 will be Martin Bunzl and Jonathan Licht from J Street

  • Martin Bunzl is professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University and a member of the national advisory board of J-Street. He was a Senior Scholar, The Van Leer Institute, Jerusalem, 2002-2003
  • Jonathan Licht, M.D., is a neurologist at Scripps Mercy Hospital and co-chair of Advocacy for J Street San Diego

J Street is the political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans fighting for the future of Israel as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people. We believe that Israel’s Jewish and democratic character depend on a two-state solution, resulting in a Palestinian state living alongside Israel in peace and security.

Rooted in our commitment to Jewish and democratic values, J Street is redefining what it means to be pro-Israel in America. We are changing the U.S. political dynamics around Israel by mobilizing broad support for a two-state solution because it’s in Israel’s and America’s interest. And we are expanding support for Israel by affirming — along with many Israelis — that being pro-Israel doesn’t require supporting every policy of its government.

We have the responsibility to fix the broken politics in America around Israel. Only with your help can J Street succeed in our fight for the future of Israel as the Jewish and democratic homeland.
