“J Street strongly condemns the Iranian regime’s vile anti-American rhetoric, its outrageous support for acts of international terrorism, its destabilizing and bloody meddling in the affairs of its neighbors, and its deplorable human rights record,” according to an internal J Street congressional document. Really? Then why does J Street’s website list numerous action alerts to save the Iran deal and thwart President Trump’s efforts against the Iranian regime?
In recent days, a Kurdish female minor and rape victim was executed in Iran. A Shiraz councilman was arrested for trying to secure the release of Bahais imprisoned because of their faith. Ahwazi Arabs, Baloch and Kurds continue to face systematic discrimination. And yet, noticeably absent from J Street’s list of action alerts is any mention of assisting the Iranian people in their struggle for human rights or even raising awareness about these issues.
