Jews should only be tough, aggressive and angry

Following the publication of this weekend’s New York Times Magazine feature on the rise of J Street and more liberal Jewry, hardline Zionists have responded with anger (God forbid that Judaism is shown as anything other than violent). Here’s the Jerusalem Post’s Shmuel Rosner:

J Street is “bringing highly placed Israeli peaceniks to spread their alternative message in Washington and beyond”? I have no problem with that as long as it tells people the truth about those “highly placed” peaceniks: that they travel to the US mainly because they have no influence and no constituency in Israel.
