Calling for the immediate end to U.S. sanctions against Iran because of the COVID-19 pandemic, are groups of self-hating, far-left Jews, who advocate for the destruction of the Jewish state, and include J STREET, founded and funded by George Soros, CODE PINK, founded by Jewess Medea Benjamin and supported/funded by George Soros, and JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE, also funded by George Soros.
The LID On March 20, J Street was the only Jewish organization to sign a letter using the Covid-19 crisis as an excuse to pressure President Trump and members of his Cabinet to forget about the existential threat Iran poses to Israel and the region on its own and through its proxy terrorist armies.
J Street’s letter said in part that it calls for “suspending many of the sanctions imposed by your administration since May 2018 for a period of at least 120 days, including those sanctions affecting Iran’s financial and oil sectors and its civilian industries.” [The letter can be found here].
Covid-19 highlights J Street’s longstanding pro-Iran stance. In 2009 as America was about to increase sanctions on Iran because of its refusal to cooperate regarding its nuclear program, J Street sent out a mass e-mail opposing a bipartisan push in Congress for tougher sanctions on Iran.
“J Street, the controversial Washington, D.C. based Jewish pressure group, was created by George Soros specifically, and almost exclusively, to lobby for an independent Palestinian state, and has since morphed into being the “go-to” organization when Israel’s harshest critics need a Jewish organization to partner with and make their radical projects and statements appear kosher,” said Herut North America’s National Director Moshe Phillips.

The next day, after J Street’s letter with CODEPINK/Jewish Voice for Peace was issued, CODEPINK’s National Co-Director, Ariel Gold, tweeted “Israel is culpable for every coronavirus death in Gaza.”
While officially they claim to support Israel, at J Street’s 2010 national conference, J Street co-founder Daniel Levy called Israel’s rebirth in 1948 “an act that was wrong.” J Street’s Advisory Council member Marcia Freedman told the 2015 J Street conference Israelis should not have a state, instead Jews should be “protected minority” in an Arab-majority country.
The 2017 president of the J Street student group sent a letter to Congress saying it was unfair to label as anti-Semites those who oppose Israel’s existence. At past conferences, J Street gave platforms to top BDS promoters, such as Mustafa Barghouti, Rebecca Vilkomerson, and Michael Sfard.
J Street has argued that Israel does not need to be recognized as a Jewish State. J Street’s Vice President for Communications and New Media Isaac Luria opined in 2010 that peace is possible without the Palestinians recognizing Israel as a Jewish State.
