Obama To Pick Anti-Israel J-Streeter to Combat Global Antisemitism?

From Laura Rozen's  Politico:

UPDATE: A top candidate seems to be Hannah Rosenthal, former head of the Jewish Council on Public Affairs and former executive director of the Chicago Foundation for Women. She has a track record of involvement in countering anti-Semitism in the international context. Rosenthal, currently community outreach director at a Wisconsin firm, was traveling and could not be immediately reached to comment.

UPDATE II: An administration official said this sounds right, regarding Rosenthal
Yid with Lid says:  
This is the ultimate cynical move by Obama. Even as the executive director of JPAC, found herself in positions to put down the Israeli government. Maybe this has been exasperated by her feelings that while at JPAC she was avoided by the heads of other Jewish Organizations.

....Rosenthal is now a member of the advisory council of the sham Pro-Israel organization J-street, formed by George Soros and mentored by President Obama in order to give his administration a false appearance of being pro-Israel.
Rosenthal has accused the Major American Jewish Organizations of not supporting the two state solution, a libelous statement. For example if you search the AIPAC site you can find documents of support of the two-state solution going as far back as their archive allows (2004), but Rosenthal said:
“For too long the ‘pro-Israel’ politics of the Jewish organizational world have lagged far behind the consensus of the people they claim to represent, the majority of whom believe that a negotiated two-state solution is in Israel’s best interest, ”said advisory council member, Hannah Rosenthal, the former executive director of the Jewish Council on Public Affairs. “J Street represents a concrete opportunity for us to bridge that gap; it is a vehicle for expressing the belief shared by the majority of American Jews and Americans alike that to be pro-Israel is to advocate for vigorous American leadership role in bringing peace and real security to the Middle East.
To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Israel and the birth of J-street Ms Rosenthal wrote an article accusing the American Jewish Community  and Israel of not wanting peace, and non progressives as anti-Israel.....

.....Fellow liberal progressive, ADL Chairman Abe Foxman then ripped Rosenthal in this this op-ed...

...The appointment of Hannah Rosenthal is more proof of how our President is trying to push ahead an anti-Israel agenda. This move is just a little more cynical than his normal Israel-trashing move.
