News Nosh 8.28.17

APN's daily news review from Israel
Monday August 28, 2017
 
Quote of the Day #1:
“For years, one of the most problematic exports of the State of Israel has been the cheapening and trivialization of the Holocaust, bordering on subtle hints of denial. This happens, for example, by comparing every adversary or enemy to the Nazis. This isn’t a phenomenon limited to a bunch of internet talkbackers. The prime minister himself is among the primary culprits in this field. Then there is, for example, the peculiar lesson learned from the terrible tragedy: never again, as long as we are talking about us.”
—Yedioth reporter Yehuda Shohat writes that more and more Israeli Jews dare to express openly or implicitly that the main problem with the Holocaust was the choice of the victims, as many of them make excuses for neo-Nazi rallies in the US.*

Quote of the Day #2:
“But it is hard to dispute their claim that many Jews, in Israel and around the world, think that hating Arabs purifies all vermins, be they a neo-Nazi, a Ku Klux Klan member or a Hungarian fascist. If they hate Arabs they must therefore be a Jew lover and loyal supporter of the State of Israel. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The debate is about what defines us—is a love for Israel, or a hatred of Arabs? The choice is ours.”
—Top Yedioth political commentator Nahum Barnea validates  the claim by authors Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman that Nazis and KKK members should not be absolved of their anti-Semitism due to their hatred of Arabs.**

APN's daily news review from Israel
Sunday August 27, 2017

Quote of the day:
"The difference between Palestinian terrorism and ISIS terror is the motive. In fact, Palestinian terrorism is fighting for the independence and rights of the Palestinian people, and so the Palestinians and some of the nations of the world see it, even when we are fighting and condemning Palestinian terrorism (rightly, we have to defend ourselves against it)."
—Maariv columnist Ran Adelist compares the ISIS attack in Barcelona and the Palestinian attacks against Israelis and writes why the Shin Bet is part of the problem.*

You must be kidding
“We are not going to state what the outcome has to be. It has to be workable to both sides. That’s the best view as to not really bias one side over the other, to make sure that they can work through it.”

Quote of the Day:

"I have met with Trump envoys about 20 times since the beginning of his term as president of the United States. Every time they repeatedly stressed to me how much they believe and are committed to a two-state solution and a halt to construction in the settlements. I have pleaded with them to say the same thing to Netanyahu, but they refrained. They said they would consider it but then they didn't get back to me."
