What Roger Cohen got right

In an earlier post, I told you some of the things Roger Cohen got wrong in his Friday article in the New York Times. Jonathan Tobin writes about the one thing Cohen got right.
But Cohen did get one thing right. He notes in passing that the administration’s latest attempt to pressure Israel failed because “President Barack Obama had virtually no domestic constituency” for his policy. This is absolutely true. The vast majority of Americans, both Jewish and non-Jewish, support the Jewish state and oppose twisting its arm in this manner. That they hold to this belief despite the constant drumbeat of attacks on Israel, such as those by Cohen, his Times colleague Nicholas Kristof, and Peter Beinart, speaks volumes about how marginal J Street still is.
Heh. Read the whole thing.
