INFO re membership, dues, Oct. 27th event, confidentiality, new pages, growth

Wow.  The response to Z STREET has been tremendous.  We thought there were a lot of like-minded folks out there whom we didn’t yet know and we were right.  In just the few days since the launch, thousands of people have visited this site and the Facebook page.

Your comments, recommendations, questions and criticisms are all taken seriously and we will be addressing them by incorporating many of the suggestions and by providing more tools with which we can communicate and together get out our message.

And here’s an update:  I spend the day in Washington, D.C. yesterday meeting with the National Parks Dept. about the logistics for our demonstration there on October 27th.  A logistics meeting?  I couldn’t understand why I had to go down there just to talk about who, what, where, when and why, but 25 minutes into the meeting I realized how many different rules and regulations there are.

I will create another page so that we can be, literally, on the same page with all the information so that our event goes off without a hitch.  I hope to get that up today.

– I will put up a new post to which people can respond if they wish to become members.  I can keep those requests private if you’d like.  I will also follow up with anyone who has posted supportive comments thus far but haven’t specifically indicated, and ask them if they want to be members.

– I also plan to create a new page for members only which will include info that we think would be best to keep only amongst committed friends.  As a former First Amendment lawyer I know how important transparency is, but as a Zionist advocate I also know how many people love to trash our cause and disrupt our efforts.

– The annual dues is $18.  Anything more is gratefully accepted (we have to pay for the stage, the sound system, the printed materials, possibly bus transportation, etc. for the Oct. 27th event), but dues entitles everyone to equal membership.

– The PayPal button can be found below, as well as a PayPal address for those who are uncomfortable putting their account info on the internet.  There is also a land mail address which I will provide to those who ask until it is officially posted.  A few questions about money conversion for dues has been raised and I will find out how best to handle that.

– We also will be putting up a post about how Z STREET is different from the other pro-Israel organizations, although many of you clearly grasped that.  But questions are being asked of us and you all should be able to provide a succinct answer as well.

– Another post will be put up that challenges language currently being used that supports the false “Palestinian” narrative, and provides alternatives.  When people are finished posting their comments there I will create a page comprised of our alternatives.

– A recommended reading list, with annotations, will be found on another page.

– We had a fabulous conference call culminating with plans for moving forward and I will post that information later today.

Thanks for coming to Z STREET. Please tell everyone you know whom you think embraces our principles that they should join.  There really is strength in numbers and right now the folks whose message is contrary to ours (i.e. those folks who don’t get that we are in an existential battle for the survival of Israel and think being a good Jew is criticizing Israel for allowing Jews to consume oxygen they think  should be reserved for the “Palestinians”) have the numbers, the money and the ears of the politicians in power. But we are defending our homeland and that provides the greatest strength of all.


Donations to PayPal can also be sent to the PayPal account associated with: zstreet18@yahoo.com

    WE are very interested in joining Z Street. When you get set up for us to pay dues please get in contact with us ASAP. $ 18.00 is to small an amount, we’ll at least double that or more. Thank you for starting this organization to combat all of the Israeli bashers and the J street group. My son, grandchildren, and great grandchildren live in Israel and they have witnessed the great evil that the Arabs have done to us.

    The appearance of the site was changed at the suggestion of a techie friend who said having white text on a black background is too tiring on the eyes, so weighing slick and cool with easy on the eye we chose option #2.

      Lori great site, just what the doctor ordered.

      I follow Caroline Glick; I tell her often she is a great American and a great Israeli. You can be both. I wish more liberal American Jews would understand this.

      As a teenager growing up in the early 50’s there use to be a lot of activities at our local Jewish Community Center (even as a Catholic I hung out there) and synagogues, not so much anymore.

      American Jews feel they need to be recognized more as Americans.

      Jews have everything to be proud of and nothing to be ashamed of.

      How about a Jewish Heritage Day celebration?

      Time for American Jews to stand up and be counted, Israel needs your support more now then ever.

      Don’t be fooled by Barak Hussein Obama, he is a Muslim and it shows and is anti-Semitic.

      Good Luck and G-d bless you

    The Paypal option is taking a little longer than I’d hoped because the company has to verify bank accounts, etc. We will have a P.O. box by the end of the day and can post that for donations/dues payment.

    “Settlement” = community; village; town
    “Settle” = establish residency;
