Israel, like any other sovereign nation, has the right to provide for her own security against terrorist campaigns. A cease fire does not seem plausible until the rocket attacks by Hamas and the threat for future rocket attacks have ended.
Indeed, a cease-fire is impossible, by definition, when one side fires rockets at another. This is common sense. But it escapes the minds over on J Street.
And whaddya know, just like his fellow Democratic Congressmen Adam Schiff, Robert Wexler, and Barney Frank, Rangel’s decidedly non-J Street sentiment is nowhere to be found on the page touting the statements of J Street-approved congresspeople on the Gaza Crisis.
