Thursday, July 5, 2018
 
Quote of the day:
"We saw the stares we were getting, the fear of speaking to us and mostly the fear of playing soccer together. But as soon as they realized we speak Arabic, respect our Palestinian friends, and play and work together under the two flags—the Israeli flag and the Palestinian flag—the barriers dropped and we quickly became best friends with the Iraqi team. We even taught them a few words in Hebrew."
--Lior Shalom, who led a delegation of Arab and Jewish Israeli teenagers from the Peres Center for Peace, which traveled to Russia for the World Cup to hold workshops and soccer training for teens from all over the world, including from Muslim nations.*

“#Birthright wouldn’t show us the occupation so we are going to see it for ourselves.”
—Katie Anne, live-streamed on Facebook herself announcing the reason she and four others were walking off the bus of a Birthright trip to join a Breaking the Silence anti-occupation tour - while the Birthright tour guide slammed them for it. Anne later told Haaretz: "Birthright gave us a map of Israel that does not denote the West Bank [even though] the director of our Birthright organization admitted that the majority of maps in Israel do include [it]. They keep saying they're apolitical but this is clearly to the right."

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday, June 27, 2018
 
Quote of the Day #1:
"When the security decision-making process is biased in the cabinet in favor of extremists, the price of blood spilled in vain is corruption. When decisions about education are polluted by radical bias by extremists, it is corruption. When the coalition supports laws that erode democracy, it is corruption. The Netanyahu family is a secondary story..."
Maariv commentator, Ran Adelist.*

Quote of the Day #2:
“Putting Ariel University, Herzog College, and Orot Israel College [all in West Bank settlements] harms both Israeli society and the academy (and…) it undercuts the Council's position as a barrier to the politicization of the Israeli academy, science, and higher education, and drags academics working in Israeli academic institutions into supporting the occupation and annexation efforts."
Israeli Anthropological Association voted to ban institutes of higher education in the West Bank.*
