APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday, February 14, 2018
Quote of the Day #1:
"Unlike what part of the public may think, this wasn’t a happy evening. There is no malicious joy
when it concerns your prime minister, and in my case and my colleagues’ case, our publisher too. It’s a
difficult moment for Israel’s citizens, and a difficult moment for us, Yedioth Ahronoth journalists.
Bribery is a serious offense, and no one likes to hear that such serious suspicions are threatening the
integrity of their home. I believe that even those who have been writing against the Netanyahu government
for years and warning of corruption would rather see him step down in a dignified and quiet manner. But
there will be no dignity and definitely no calm here."
--Senior Yedioth political commentator Sima
that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is on his way out.*
Quote of the Day #2:
"A forest of clouds will escort Netanyahu at every step...At every place, in every diplomatic move
and military campaign in which he will need to contend, there will be a doubt as to whether Netanyahu is
doing it out of substantive reasons, as he says, or because of the police suspicions. That is the main
problem with which Netanyahu will need to deal - the moral clarity of his continued role."
--Maariv commentator and Channel 2 political analyst, Udi Segal, writes about the
of the suspicions against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.**
