J Street: Concerned about the impact on the civilian population in Gaza ; Tzipi Livni: We should be talking with those who don’t fire at us and fire at those who do

Prominent Israeli politician Tzipi Livni told Ynet Live in Ofakim, where four people sustained injuries from a rocket hit: “If we want a dramatic solution, it won’t be achieved through another operation but through a change of strategy and policy.”

Livni added: “We have to think what we should do in the region and how to go about it. By my policy – we should be talking with those who don’t fire at us and fire at those who do.” Source@:,7340,L-4307878,00.html


J Street:

At this sensitive moment, we call on President Obama to mobilize international partners to broker a ceasefire quickly. It is critical now to prevent escalation of the violence, which could increase casualties on both sides and further strain already fraught tensions in the region.

We also remain concerned about the impact on the civilian population in Gaza and urge the IDF to exercise judicious restraint in limiting its response to military targets in an effort to prevent civilian casualties.

According to ZOA, In March of 2012, “JStreet, which claims to be a “pro-Israel, pro-peace” organization, falsely claimed that “Israel Defense Forces… have killed over a dozen Palestinian civilians” in military strikes targeting terrorists in Hamas-controlled Gaza. JStreet had publicized a lie.

When called out, how did it deal with it? Dishonestly: it issued a phony and misleading retraction expressing “regret” at having “misstated the number of civilian casualties.” But it hadn’t. None of the 16 Palestinians killed had been civilians. All had been terrorists belonging either to the Popular Resistance Committees or Palestinian Islamic Jihad. But J Street didn’t mention this.”



Israel fires warning Tamuz missile into Syria:

Israel’s deteriorating security situation erupted simultaneously on two fronts Sunday, Nov. 11. The IDF fired a Tamuz precision guided missile against a mortar position 4 kilometers inside Syria after a stray mortar hit the IDF Golan defense post at Tel Hazaka. It was the fourth incident of cross-border violence from the Syrian conflict in 10 days and the first time Israel had fired across the Golan border since the 1973 war. The Tamuz was developed by RAFAEL and is operated from specially modified M-113 Hafiz armored personnel carriers. Continue@:…

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
