J Street continues to destroy its credibility by posting deceptive ads of this kind. If the organization is willing to mislead the public in this manner, it should not be trusted to tell the truth about anything relating to Israel. J Streeters are more interested in increasing their own power and contributions than they are in supporting Israel or promoting truthful dialogue.
If J Street wants to have any chance at restoring its credibility, it must begin to tell the truth. A good first step would be to remove this ad and admit that it was fraudulent Otherwise, everyone will begin to understand what the J in J Street stands for: Joe McCarthy. (JTA)
