APN's daily news review from Israel
Friday June 22, 2018
Quote of the Day #1:
“What was once whispered about behind closed doors, people are no longer ashamed to say out in the open.”
--Raghad Jaraisy, director of Arab minority rights at the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, said incidents of racism against Arab citizens of Israel have changed in Israeli society - now even politicians aren’t ashamed to make racist statements against Arabs.

Quote of the Day #2:
"Dozens of families in Israel still do not know that their children will be buried during the summer...In the course of the upcoming war in the south our sons and daughters will die for nothing, but from the point of view of the right-wing government, Hamas is a gift that does not stop giving. On one side is desperation, on the other side is folly."
--Maariv senior political commentator, Ben Caspit, writes about the war he fears Israel will have against Gaza.
