Whose Left?

Or should that be who's left? It could be either really. Here's Ha'aretz making various zionist groups out to be "left-leaning":

Left-leaning pro-Israel groups have called on the country’s largest Presbyterian Church to abandon plans to divest from three companies that it is says have resisted the request to stop providing services that aid Israel’s occupation of the West Bank.
Americans for Peace Now and J Street have called on the Church's plenary to vote against a committee recommendation made earlier this week calling for divestment.
The Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly’s Middle East Committee voted 36 to 11 with one abstention in favor of divesting its portfolio from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions. The committee said the company’s helped “Israel’s use of their products in violations of Palestinian human rights.”
The group recommended the church put those funds instead into companies “engaging in peaceful pursuits in Israel and Palestine.”

"Left-leaning pro-Israel"? I think it's safe to call that an oxymoron.
