Bad acts deserve bad consequences. Spare the rod, spoil the country.

As usual when an organization like PPJC is called to task for their clear anti-Israel record, which is not limited to Israel bashing and the palestinians are always right and the evil Israelis are alwyas wrong, they alwyas like to bring out the fact that jews belong to the organization. to which I reply--so what. Jews are entitled to form their own opinions and to support any terrorist organization they want--this appears to be the case given the record of some of the Jews featured as members of PPJC.
the point is that PPJC has always been a virulently anti-Israel orgnization and has made excuses for any actions taken by the palestinian terrorists to destroy Israel. Rather than trying to make a constructive contribution towards peace in the region, they have served as a mouthpiece and apologist for the actions of palestinian murderers, terrorists and homicide bombers(not to mention their support for Hezbollah as well).

The center is opposed to the concept of self defense primarily because they can hide safely behind responsible adults.

Judging by the news links that the PPJC sees fit to link to post in their section on the Mideast, you'd never know that Hamas or Hezbollah ever committed or even endorsed an act of terrorism. You'd never know that Fatah and Hamas are almost at war with each other. The only news that counts at PPJC is news that casts Israel in a bad light. Such a one-sided presentation of information suggests neither peace nor justice. Just call them the Peninsula Center.

Just to make sure and for the sake of complete openness and honesty, is the original poster Stephen Rock, the same Steve Rock that is listed as Treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors of PPJC?

Agreed, I don't even listen to them any more, they are completely predictable, and "preach to the choir".

For the same reasons I don't even bother with moveon.org or dailykos.
