J Street's Values or Its Hypocrisy?


[Jeremy] Ben-Ami said that J Street itself strongly opposes the BDS movement, but that “we engage with people we disagree with. We don’t shut them out. Those who are involved in the BDS movement in the Jewish community should be argued with and shown that they’re wrong, but to just shut them out is wrong.”
At the same time, Ben-Ami, as well as Saperstein, distinguished between campaigns to boycott Israel entirely versus those targeting products and institutions in the West Bank.

So, I don't get invited to discuss, discourse or debate?  Not even engaged?

I'm shut out, I guess.

Is that a value or plain hypocrisy?
