A Little Non-Controversy to Get Things Started

The right wing noise machine in Israel is getting silly before the J Street mission even begins.

Here's J Street's statement setting the record straight:

"The report published today in Israel Hayom concerning J Street’s schedule during its upcoming Leadership Mission to Israel is false.  J Street has many meetings scheduled with Israeli officials from President Peres to Deputy Prime Minister Meridor, to the Leader of the Opposition and multiple members of Knesset.  J Street will be visiting Ramallah to meet with Prime Minister Fayyad on Wednesday not on Monday as reported, and the cocktail reception for our supporters in Israel begins after Yom HaShoah ends Monday evening."
