The New Jewish Lobby in the U.S.

The Washington Post reports on the J Street neo-liberal Jewish lobby which has been quite aggressive in getting support in U.S. government circles. It is interesting to see what it stands for in the light of the new Israeli administration.
They claim to stand for peace and diplomacy, and are highly critical of Israeli government policy. They believe in a two state solution for Israel and Palestine and they are particularly concerned about a failure to recognise what Liebermann stands for.
Since their viiews appear to coincide more with Obama’s stance than that of Israel the question is will they have any influence on U.S. policy towards Israel and Palestine in particular and the Middle East in general?
