News Nosh 7.27.17

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday July 28, 2017
 
Quote of the Day #1:
"When I heard that the terrorist remained alive, it did me in. Because in the next deal, they'll release him. Afterward, I understood that 'A.' did the right thing."
--Shmuel Salomon, whose father, brother and sister were murdered by a Palestinian teen in Halamish settlement. 'A.', a neighbor serving in the army, shot and injured the attacker, stopping him, but A. did not execute him.* A. is expected to receive an IDF hero's medal.*

Quote of the Day #2:
"Now it turns out that what happened in Jordan was not a (terror) attack, but a dispute that boiled over into a shooting incident, in which in the end, the (Israeli) guard shot and killed two Jordanians - and not the attacker who held the screwdriver and tried to stab him. That is not how an incident like that is supposed to end. The closeness of the two incidents, and the political and public reaction, sharpen the question over who is really fit to be called a hero.”
--Yedioth military analyst Yossi Yehoshua writes why the IDF will give A. a hero's medal.*

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday July 26, 2017
 
Quote of the day:
"A state that maintains democracy and whose citizens have equal rights does not need, out of a lack of self-confidence, to define itself over and over again. The Right is the most insecure when it comes to the future of the State of Israel. You are starting a fire here that will tear this country to shreds. When I talk about fascism, this is a classic example. When my father stood at a rally at the U.N. against the resolution that ruled that Zionism is racism, he emphasized that the State of Israel is a country with equal rights for all. You, with this basic law, are unwilling to establish equal rights between Jews and Arabs. You need this paper and to play with nuances, to humiliate, to create division instead of integration."
--Opposition leader, MK Isaac Herzog, said ahead of the launch by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of discussions by the new committee established to debate the controversial Jewish nation-state law.**

APN's daily news review from Israel
Tuesday July 25, 2017
 
Quote of the Day #1:
“I will never justify the murder of innocent people in their homes. Or how a mother can praise her murderous son. But retaliating just leads to more violence. Coming here can lead to something better. I’m not sure what – I don’t have concrete answers. But I know that I had to be here, because women can create something different.”
--Leah, a 34-year-old Jewish-Israeli teacher, who came from the Galilee to the Jewish-Arab rally of the Women Wage Peace group Sunday night.*

Quote of the Day #2:
"Now we're back at the starting point, just in worse shape, with rotten egg on our faces."
-Senior Maariv political commentator Ben Caspit in a biting Op-Ed.**

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday July 24, 2017
 
Quote of the day:
"People told him, 'Why didn't you finish him off?' Going into the house and shooting him in the head is another case of Elor Azaria. We are not murderers, we are only defenders."
--Rachel Maoz, mother of the soldier who shot through the window and injured the Palestinian who murdered three people, rejected calls that her son should have executed the murderer.*
