      Schneller to Olmert: Repudiate J Street

      MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) called Tuesday for former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to publicly distance himself from the far-left group “J. Street,” which has condemned Israel’s counter-terror activities in Gaza.

      “While more than a million Israeli citizens have spent four days and nights in bomb shelters… the terrorists firing on them are getting encouragement and support not only from Iran and Hizbullah, but also from the Jewish-American leftist group ‘J Street,’” he said.

      Olmert recently accepted an invitation to be a guest of honor at a J Street event, said Schneller. “I call on Mr. Olmert to repudiate this organization.”
