    Not telling one the entire truth is not the same as lying. What J-Street said was true. Here are quotes on the "Goldstone" issue: 1. "when Judge Goldstone came to Washington, [J Street leaders were] suggesting that they might help him set up his appointments on Capitol Hill." - Colette A.// 2. "Before he realized that Colette Avital had been our initial source, Jeremy Ben-Ami told us on the record that J Street's only correspondence with Avital regarding Goldstone's visit was her asking him by e-mail whether J Street was playing any role whatsoever and him telling her no," - Washington Times// 3. ""[J Street] believed it to be a good idea for [Goldstone] and for members of Congress to meet personally, but we declined to play a role in hosting, convening or attending any of the meetings." Although he did admit to the Washington Times that his staffers contacted some Congressmen with regard to Goldstone visit." - Washington Times// It appears from all this that J-Street helped Goldstone set up some appointments with members of Congress but did not attend any of them. J-Street covered up the fact that they told Avital they "might" help set up appointments. Instead, they reported that they told her they told her they DID NOT HAVE any role with Goldstome. Apparently, when they spoke with Avital, they said "might" (future tense) because by then they did not yet set any up appointment. So the statement was true, if incomplete. They might condemn you in Stalinist Moscow for it, but Moscowaya should know that such is normal in the West. P.S. Washington Times is a right wing paper, owned by the Moonies, and not to be confused by the more respectable and popular Washington Post.
