News Nosh 1.21.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Tuesday January 21, 2020

 Quote of the day:
"At least the right wing is consistent.  Not only is incitement against Arabs one of its standard tools to whip up the base, but the right’s ethnocentric and nationalist ideology also mandates a callous disregard for the Arab minority, its history and its demands for full integration and equality. On the left, it’s the other way around: Its leaders’ refusal to engage with Arabs not only contradicts its supposedly liberal worldview, but also lends credence to right-wing efforts to trash the left."
--Haaretz commentator Chemi Shalev writes about the left-wing's refusal to take the outstretched hand of leading Israeli Arab politicians.*

 You Must Be Kidding: 

Judges ruled to give Ateret Cohanim settler organization the land in E. Jerusalem on which live 23 members of the Rajbi family in a home they bought over 40 years ago, on grounds that the structure was built on land owned by Jews before 1948. Israeli law enables Jews to repossess properties in East Jerusalem that they lost during the 1948 war, but does not allow similar rights to the thousands of Palestinians who lost their property in that war.**

News Nosh 1.15.20

APN's daily news review from Israel

Wednesday January 15, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
“I expect the state authorities in the area, both the army and the Civil Administration, to treat Palestinians, especially those who are innocent of any crime, as they would Israelis who are injured parties. I expect that after [the authorities] are forced to damage businesses, they act fairly when considering the compensation due them and not try to evade responsibility using creative legal arguments.”
--Military Judge Ronen Atzmon wrote in an unusual ruling because it awarded compensation to the plaintiffs — Palestinians whose plant nurseries were needlessly destroyed by Israeli soldiers in 2000, during the Second intifada.*

You Must Be Kidding: 
"The charges against Netanyahu are much more serious. If Netanyahu can [run for Knesset], so can we."
—Gali Silver, wife of Amos Silver who is in jail on drug trafficking charges for running Telegrass, an online illegal Israeli cannabis and drug distribution network. Amos registered the New Economic Dawn party from jail on Tuesday.**

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday January 9, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
"For years the Washington-Jerusalem axis has had a tiring debate about the essence of the "credible military threat" toward Iran, which will deter it from breaking into nukes. Well, the answer was given yesterday: a credible military threat is the one you feel when it's in your face. The Iranians felt it and decided that, with all due respect to Shahid Soleimani, the survival of the regime is paramount."
--Yedioth's Middle East analyst, Shimrit Meir, examines the Iranian retaliation to the US assassination of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani.*
