Earth to J Street

Michael Goldfarb of the Weekly Standard notes:  

Another speaker on J Street's "independent" blogger panel rises to the defend his copanelist Helena Cobban, whose advocacy on behalf of Hamas and disdain for Israel was detailed here earlier today:
Another strike against Cobban, making her deserving of expulsion from our session, is that she equates the violence of Hamas against Israeli targets to the violence of the IDF against Hamas. I kid you not. That’s a hangin’ offense in Goldfarbland. I’d have thought the analogy would be almost self-evident. But apparently where Goldfarb lives Israel’s killing of Hamas leaders is self-defense, while Hamas’ killing of Israelis is terrorism.
Let's see . . . simultaneously condoning the killing of "Hamas leaders" and condemning the killing of Israelis by Hamas. That would be like condoning the war on al Qaeda while condemning the 9/11 attacks. In Goldfarbland, aka the real world, this is self-evident. What planet is J Street on?
