Guardian

Am Israel Chai


A couple of days ago we reported that the Guardian was conducting a poll purportedly to gauge support for J Street.

In a rather obvious attempt to skew the results, the Guardian featured a torn and tattered flag of the State of Israel together with an imprecise formulation of the question being polled.

Well things didn’t work acccording to plan for the Guardian. Although the poll initially ran in favor of JStreet, the results soon turned around. Here are the final results:

13.4% Roadmap. J Street’s voice is valuable
 86.6% Roadblock. J Street muddies the debate

Am Israel Chai!

  1. I see that beautiful blue and white flag has been restored to its full splendor!!

    Well done, CiFWatch and all those who sail in her!!

  2. The poll will be dismissed and buried in their archives. They will view this as a non scientific poll (now that they lost). Now that the poll has been relegated to history, the Guardian will return to the task at hand probably more determined than ever – undermine the state of Israel

  3. Why is everyone here so pleased with the poll results?

    Look at the question again-

    Yes: Roadmap. J Street’s voice is valuable

    No: Roadblock. J Street muddies the debate

    Oviously J-street “muddies” the debate by promulgating the fiction of a progressive form of Zionism. Does anyone seriously think a vote on Cif against J-street is a vote for Aipac?

  4. “Oviously J-street “muddies” the debate by promulgating the fiction of a progressive form of Zionism.”

    In which case many critics of J Street have a point in observing that anti-Zionism is definitely the new form of inveterate antisemitism. The antisemites surely believe that, as you say progressive Zionism is a fiction.

    I have nothing against J Street in principle. US Jews can get together in whatever form they please. The J Street founders and probably to the right of their base, in which many anti-Zionists are included.

    But it may prove a useful moderating or other kind of voice. We shall see.
