A March 11th post commented on how JStreet got it wrong when issuing the following statement.
“J Street is deeply concerned about the most recent spate of violence between the Israel Defense Forces and militants in Gaza, which, in three days, has already resulted in over one hundred rockets fired on Israeli cities and towns and airstrikes on Gaza that have killed over a dozen Palestinian civilians...."
J street is wrong. There were not 12 civilians killed in Gaza.
An update followed: J Street has changed the announcement to exclude the reference to the 12 civilians.
An anonymous commenter wrote the following.
So J-Street revised and covered their tracks without explaining why? No apologies, no admittance of wrongdoing? Sorry, not impressed.

Today Israel National News reports the following.
MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) called on former prime minister and Kadima head Ehud Olmert to retract his endorsement of J Street.
"While over one million Israeli citizens have spent four days and four nights in bomb shelters, and do not go to work and school out of fear of the next siren... the terrorists firing rockets at them are not only supported by Iran and Hizbullah, but by the left-wing American Jewish organization J Street," Schneller said in remarks to the Knesset on Tuesday.

And speaking of getting it wrong, A Soldier's Mother writes about a photo making the rounds with a wrong caption. (for the second time, I may add.)
The photos of Palestinian children being killed twice has to make one believe in the 13th principle of Maimonides - the resurrection of the dead.
