A Feb. 8 JTA story on the slow response of Jewish groups to the Bush administration’s new push for the Palestinians described Jewish organizations, including AIPAC, as being “silent” on resolutions that were adopted by the House and Senate. This assessment was based on what AIPAC, other organizations and sources on Capitol Hill told us at the time. In light of new information, we now believe AIPAC had more input into the congressional resolutions behind the scenes than what our story led readers to believe. We stand by the central contention of the story, which is that Jewish groups have been less than enthusiastic about the administration’s new stance toward the Palestinians.
