APN's daily news review from Israel
Tuesday October 08, 2013
Quote of the day:
'Yosef was the only major rabbinic figure to make the courageous ruling that preserving lives was more
important than retaining territory...(But he) also represented a racist version of Judaism, claiming that non-Jews
were born only "to serve us. Otherwise, they have no place in this world."
--Haaretz Editorial describes how along with his virtues and achievements, Yosef will also be remembered as a man who contributed a great deal to the polarization and division of Israeli society. **
