No Dialog with Proselytizers

I was amused to see that Jewish groups are complaining about the fact that Roman Catholics are trying to proselytize them during dialog (link). What did they think the point of the dialog was, exactly? What is even more amusing is the similarity between the Jewish leaders comments and the comments of some of the Roman Catholic apologists I've noted in the past:
Jewish leaders say that they interpret the bishops' new document as a plan to evangelize Jews during interfaith dialogue. Jews say they can't participate in a dialogue under those conditions.
We hear essentially the same thing from those fearful or hypocritical Roman Catholics: 'we cannot dialog with you,' they essentially say, 'if you are trying to convert us.'
