J Street Liberal Lobby Group Designed To Manipulate American Jews

None other than George Soros and most likely his alter ego a.k.a. Consolacion Esdicul funneled 2/3rds of J Street's total FY 2008-2009 funding all the while keeping Soros' association hidden.

Now that Soros has been outted as the force behind J Street, The Obama regime is moving quickly to distance themselves from this leak.

J Street fancies itself a lobby group representing "progressive" American Jewish interests. It is this group who would bargain away the Israeli homeland in the name of Arab appeasement. While 95% of Israelis oppose the Obama pro Palestinian agenda, J Street fronting for Soros, does the bidding for the New World Order.

Only one word is fitting for J Street- Betrayer.

The Jewish-American advocacy group J Street, which bills itself as the dovish alternative to the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobby, has secretly received funding from billionaire George Soros despite previous denials that it accepted funds from the Hungarian-born financier and liberal political activist.

Tax forms obtained by The Washington Times reveal that Mr. Soros and his two children, Jonathan and Andrea Soros, contributed a total $245,000 to J Street from one Manhattan address in New York during the fiscal year from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009.

The contributions represent a third of the group's revenue from U.S. sources during the period. Nearly half of J Street's revenue during the timeframe — a total of $811,697 — however, came from a single donor in Happy Valley, Hong Kong, named Consolacion Esdicul.

Jeremy Ben Ami, J Street's executive director, said in an interview that the $245,000 was part of a $750,000 gift from the Soros family to his organization made over three years. Mr. Ben Ami also said that in this same period he had raised $11 million for J Street and its political action committee.

Mr. Soros made billions as a hedge fund manager and currency speculator, founding the Quantum hedge fund that, until the early 1980s, was based in an offshore tax haven in the Dutch Antilles Islands. Both his business success and his subsequent charitable giving in support of favored political and social causes have made him a figure of immense controversy both in the United States and around the world.

One of the world's wealthiest philanthropists, Mr. Soros gave initially gave money to support Eastern European dissidents at the end of the Cold War, particularly in his native Hungary, through the Open Society Institute.

But during the George W. Bush administration, Mr. Soros stepped up his funding of more partisan liberal organizations in the United States, including MoveOn.org and Media Matters for America. He has also strongly criticized U.S. policies regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including the Bush administration' decision in 2007 not to recognize a Palestinian unity government that included the militant Islamist Hamas movement.

He specifically criticized AIPAC at the time in a New York Review of Books article, saying the group had "overreached itself" in trying to ensure a hawkish, pro-Israeli policy in the U.S. government.

AIPAC "became closely allied with the neocons and was an enthusiastic supporter of the invasion of Iraq," Mr. Soros wrote.

Mr. Ben Ami in past interviews has described J Street as President Obama's "blocking back" in Congress, with the group billing itself as the lead Jewish-American group supporting elements in the Israeli political spectrum who favor negotiating a lasting two-state peace deal with the Palestinians.
