J Street Condems Rocketing of Beersheva

August 16, 2011

J Street condemns the firing of the Palestinian rocket at Beersheva Monday night and stands squarely behind Israel’s right to defend its citizens against attack. We urge both sides to refrain from further violence. These attacks perpetuate a vicious retaliatory cycle that drives Israelis and Palestinians farther apart and diminishes the chances of reaching a two-state solution.
