News Nosh 1.17.18

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday, January 17, 2018
 
Quote of the day:
"Israelis have committed war crimes here and there; the Shin Bet was involved in the education system in the Arab sector; Israel has treated its Arab citizens in a manner that doesn't dignify a democratic state (and other civilians). If Israel commits acts that the courts in Israel or the world would reject, it is appropriate for citizens of the state to know about this and decide whether it is acceptable to them."
--Outgoing Chief Archivist of Israel's National Archives, Yaakov Lazovik, wrote in a scathing report that Israel is concealing embarrassing parts of its history under the guise of security.*

APN's daily news review from Israel

Quote of the Day #1:
“We are writing to you in the conviction that the time has come for a world-wide protest against the organized inhumanity of the Government of the Union of South Africa…We have watched with great concern the relentless pursuit of official racism (apartheid) by the South African Government. It has defied the most elemental considerations of human decency in its treatment of African and Asian citizens, loosely called non-whites…While there is time, we hope you will join us in this undertaking. We look forward to your affirmative reply as indicated by your signature on the enclosed card.”
—Parts of a recently unearthed letter co-written in 1957 to Jewish philosopher Martin Buber by Martin Luther King Jr. asking him to join the struggle against apartheid in South Africa.*


Quote of the Day #2:
"When Israeli officers sanctimoniously warn that 95 percent of Gaza's water is unfit to drink, they ignore the original absurdity: Israel forces Gaza to make do with water from the aquifer located within its borders. This aquifer, which supplied water to some 300,000 people in 1950, is now supposed to supply the same amount to two million people. Its no wonder there is over-pumping and contamination by sewage and seawater."
--Haaretz journalist Amira Hass writes that the source of Gaza's economic and infrastructure problems, which Israel is warning about, is Israel.**

Friday January 12, 2018
 
Quote of the Day #1:
"The things he said in that conversation in the car represent exactly who he is: A 26-year-old young man who has no job and lives at the state’s expense. A person who drags an entire security detail wherever he goes 24/7, costing the Israeli public millions. A person who is overwhelmingly involved in the state’s affairs, participates in state events, poses for photographs with world leaders—yet isn’t aware of the price this entails and acts like a spoiled and rotten child."
--Yedioth's senior political commentator, Sima Kadmon, writes about the meaning of what was said in the shameful recordings of the Prime Minister's son, Yair Netanyahu.

Quote of the Day #2:
"The Gaza Strip is a failing territory. Ninety-percent of drinking water there is unfit for drinking, unemployment among young adults is at 60%, and I can give you even more data than that. This is mainly a problem for Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, but the State of Israel is very much affected by this."
--Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Maj. Gen. Yoav (Poli) Mordechai, addressed the situation in Gaza at the Globes Israel Business Conference.

Number of the Day:

Friday, January 5, 2018
 
Quote of the day:
