    has been tepid to J-Street's entreaties. When a supposed pro-Israeli lobbying group is going to start its inaugeral meeting with comments such as "this conference will not be forgiving of Israel, nor will it offer unmitigated support. Tough questions will be asked and every aspect of Israel's policies and relationship with the U.S. come under scrutiny; even a debate about "what it means to be pro-Israel" was promised." It seems not only fair, but rational for Israelis and the Israeli government to "not offer unmitigated support. Certainly tough questions and scrutiny of J-Street is warrented as well. That the Ha'Aretz pundit points to the fact that J-Street is more in line with Obama than Israel should raise questions to J-Street's leadership just who are they lobbying for, and who are they lobbying to?

    from the article: J Street convenes in Washington, but can it take on AIPAC?
