J Street didn't make the list!?!

The Anti-Defamation League has named the top ten anti-Israel groups in the United States. Surprisingly, J Street did not make the list.
"While there are hundreds of groups that organize and participate in various anti-Israel activities, we have identified the largest and most well-coordinated anti-Israel groups," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.
"These groups are not promoting peace, they are spreading propaganda to assault Israel's legitimacy. We want to Americans to know who these groups are and what it is they really stand for, which is to delegitimize the Jewish state."
In a new online report, ADL takes a close look at the top 10 anti-Israel groups operating in the U.S. The League examines the dynamics of the U.S. anti-Israel movement and the ability of the most prominent groups to organize events, attract supporters and forge relationships with other like-minded organizations.

The Top 10 Anti-Israel Groups, as identified by ADL, are:

Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER)
Council on American-Islamic Relations
Friends of Sabeel-North America
If Americans Knew
International Solidarity Movement
Jewish Voice for Peace
Muslim American Society
Students for Justice in Palestine
US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

"These groups demonize Israel through various public campaigns. Their messages are one-sided and fail to take the complexity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into account," said Mr. Foxman. "They unfairly attack Israel while ignoring Palestinian terrorism and incitement. They apply a different standard to Israel than other countries, condemning it for implementing policies to protect its citizens."
I guess J Street just isn't influential enough to make the list.
