Thursday July 21, 2016
 
Quote of the day:
"[Mahmoud] Darwish is like the [Chaim Nahum] Bialik of the Palestinians. He is a figure that the Arab-Israelis really identify with.

But that is unusual and it is not easy to teach Jewish pupils about Arab writers. My students initially objected to learn about the identity of the Other and to learn the works of non-Jews. But they went through a process of getting to know that there is another narrative and other quality poets and authors, Arabs.”

This time, it’s against the Arabs, the second time it will be against women, and the next time you will harm some other group, until in the end they get to you. And there will be no one to protect you. When you...allow the Israeli parliament to oust its own members, that is where the trouble starts.”
--MK Nachman Shai (Zionist Camp) said at the same stormy Knesset session.**
