J Street Leader Warmly Greets Palestinian Authority Pres Abbas

February 13, 2020

Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of the radical left-wing J Street, kissed and embraced Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in New York on Tuesday, according to Breitbart News.

On Tuesday, Abbas denounced Trump’s peace plan — which acknowledges Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, allows Israel to annex parts of Judea and Samaria necessary for its security, and makes Palestinian statehood conditional on a  renunciation of terror — at the United Nations Security Council.

Ben-Ami greeted him warmly afterwards, following a press conference Abbas held with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at a Manhattan hotel.

The Republican Jewish Coalition tweeted that Ben-Ami’s embrace of Abbas was “absolutely disgusting”: “Absolutely disgusting that @jstreetdotorg‘s @JeremyBenAmi would embrace Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas funds terrorists to kill American and Israeli Jews. He is a virulent anti-Semite. Ben Ami isn’t a head of state, he doesn’t have to pretend Abbas is legitimate.”
