J-Street calls itself the organization that “gives political voice to mainstream American Jews and other supporters of Israel” but it is far from a pro-Israel group. In 2010 it was revealed that radical far left billionaire George Soros had donated $245,000 to the leftist organization in 2008, and another $500,000 in subsequent years.

Co-founder Daniel Levy was caught on tape telling an audience that the creation of Israel was “an act that was wrong.”
And in 2015 J-Street elected a Muslim to head the organization.
The Obama White House paid J-Street over HALF A MILLION DOLLARS to promote the devastating Iranian nuclear deal.
Israel National News reported:
J-Street received more than half a million dollars to advocate for the Obama administration’s controversial nuclear deal with Iran, it has been revealed.
The liberal Jewish group, which bills itself as “pro-Israel and pro-peace” but which critics say takes solely anti-Israel stances, was paid the money by the White House’s main surrogate organization for selling the deal.
The Ploughshares Fund was named in an explosive New York Times profile of Obama aid Ben Rhodes, in which the President’s chief spin doctor listed the central groups responsible for creating an “echo chamber” in order to promote the deal, even when the White House’s official line didn’t jibe with the facts.
According to Associated Press, the group’s 2015 annual report details several organizations which received substantial funds to peddle the official White House line on the nuclear deal. Among them was National Public Radio (NPR), which received a $100,000 grant to promote “national security reporting that emphasizes the themes of U.S. nuclear weapons policy and budgets, Iran’s nuclear program, international nuclear security topics and U.S. policy toward nuclear security.”
Other grantees included: The Arms Control Association ($282,500); the Brookings Institution ($225,000); and the Atlantic Council ($182,500), who “received money for Iran-related analysis, briefings and media outreach, and non-Iran nuclear work,” according to AP.
