MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) of the Israeli Knesset has criticized the U.S. lobbying group J Street for recent comments it made on the violence between Israel and Gaza. The J Street statement criticized “rockets fired on Israeli cities and towns and airstrikes on Gaza that have killed over a dozen Palestinian civilians.”

“At a time when a million Israeli citizens have been living in bomb shelters for four days and four nights, have not gone to school or work and anxiously await the next siren, the terrorists firing on them are getting encouragement and support, not just from Iran and Hezbollah, but also from the left-wing Jewish American organization J Street,” Schneller said in response, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Later, J Street removed the reference to “over a dozen Palestinian civilians” from its website and added the note, “please note the original statement misstated the number of civilian casualties. We regret the error.”
