French Jews Divide on Palestine

JCall, an organization of French Jews critical of Israeli government policy, resembles its American counterpart JStreet. The emergence of organized opposition to existing Jewish representative institutions in both countries is an interesting sign of shifting opinion as well as growing divergence between public opinion in the diaspora and public opinion in Israel, where support for the Netanyahu government remains strong. See this post by Spencer Ackerman for a discussion of political developments within Israel that may explain the growing division of Jewish opinion abroad.
