J Street sponsors evening to encourage IDF soldiers to lay down their arms

This will surely encourage IDF soldiers to defend our country:
J Street U Jerusalem presents Lochmim L'Shalom/Combatants for Peace

Join us for an evening with Lochmim L'Shalom/Combatants for Peace

"only by joining forces will we be able to end the cycle of violence"

A group of Israeli Soldiers and Palestinian fighters who have decided to lay down their arms and realize their vision of resolving the conflict by peaceful means.

Let us know if you're coming on Facebook:

#4 Let's be clear on this, Combatants for Peace doesn't mean that Israeli soldiers should symbolically "lay down their arms".

Here is how the organization presents its position: http://cfpeace.org/?page_id=2


...we declare that we refuse to take part any more in the mutual bloodletting. We will act only by non-violent means...

That's right. These are Israeli soldiers who declare that they will not participate in defending Israel against external threats.

#5. So while J Street U supports "Israel's right to defend itself against external threats" , J Street Y's Jerusalem branch sponsors an evening promoting a group that wishes to strip Israel of its ability to defend itself against external threats.

Question: Will the J Street/J Street U leadership cancel the event?
Of course they won't.

Then again, isn't J Street U the part of J Street that dropped "pro-Israel" from its slogan? So why is this unexpected?

Read the whole thing.

J-Street - neither pro-Israel nor pro-peace.

They can ask Ehud Barak why he left his long time political home for good.
