  1. I do wonder if they made the decision to use that particular map because it’s graphically simpler, and therefore potentially “stronger.” I’m only an amateur graphic designer, so that’s my best guess, knowing J Street’s stated commitment to a two-state solution.

    I do know what you mean, however. It IS rather unfortunate! 🙂

  2. 1. The two-state solution has been dead for a long time. Israel killed it.

    2. J Street is just AIPAC’s slightly more liberal son.

  3. I usually think that J Street was “invented” as a ploy to siphon off as much of more-or-less progressive USA Jewish activity into an AIPAC-clone in order to prevent such people from finding their way elsewhere (maybe JVP).

    If this ad is supposed to challenge this impression, it is far too subtle for me, even if I good-naturedly “try” to find mollifying signals, such as the [if you think about it] “scary” one-minute-til-midnight and THEN ONE-STATE (TWO STATES DEAD).

  4. I disagree. I think the idea was to show the territory that will be turned into the two states. If they used the usual green line to demarcate the two states, that would be inaccurate because there are likely to be certain land exchanges. I think they are saying it’s time to draw a new border within this territory. And I’m all for J Street.

  5. Has anyone ever tried to find a world map (in the USA) that even has Palestine on it? I have only found one acknowledging any reference to Palestine, and I really had to shop around. I gave it to a friend in Gaza for a little hope.
