Why J Street was rejected

The Times of Israel has the full story of why J Street didn't get in to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. Here's the key part.
But they emphasize that J Street was rejected not by the “Left or Right” or a “right-wing minority” but by the overwhelming voting consensus of the 50-member organization. Moreover, the sources say, J Street supporters were in a smaller minority than initially apparent because just two voting blocs controlled 8 of the 17 yes votes.
When you read the entire article, it's readily apparent that those two blocs were the Conservative and Reform movements.
Read the whole thing.

To pick only the reform and conservative to disdain is the small view. J Street is an adjunct of the Obama/Clinton Progressive Democrat Wrecking Crew. I'm more concerned about the rest of the 50 (almost every one?) who are all in with J Street in standing with the lawless Dems in instituting oppression in America to supplant the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights.

The UK's version of J-Street is Yachad and they posted a similar manifesto here:
