Rosner to the rescue: J Street full of surprises after all



I hate being wrong, which is why I started to worry this morning after seeing the reaction on liberal Jewish blogs to the J Street survey of American Jewish sentiments. I had panned the results as being chock full unsurprising schlock that, quite conveniently, bowed to J Street’s political interests. Had I missed something so obvious to everyone else?

Probably. But that’s not the point, because it turns out I was not only onto something but was in very good company. Jewlicious just informed me that The Shmuel Rosner found the survey filled with flawed and oversights, making its results “laughable.”

First thing Rosner did was point out that J Street’s press release, which is all I read, carried “no such suprises.”

Case closed: American Jews support the J Street agenda. Or do they?

Let’s take a look at a couple of interesting numbers from this poll:
