J Street and Liberal Zionism have enabled the Far Right in Israel
Jeremy Ben-Ami, the president of J Street, recently gave a speech. He tried to claim he is in favor of standing up to the far right in Israel. In fact, he made clear what has always been the case: liberal Zionism is the fig leaf under which Zionist crimes and the apartheid regime flourish.
Eli Gerzon asks Miko Peled about the code words and quotations that make Ben-Ami's intentions clear. Also a brief discussion about the history of bagels in Israel.
