Monday, October 2, 2017
 
Quote of the day:
“On the other hand, the arguments that are now being claimed on the left are true: It’s not reasonable that when there is a split between Gaza and the West Bank, Israel says there is no partner because the Palestinian people are divided, and that when there is unity, Israel will claim that there is no partner because of Hamas.”

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Quote of the day:
"Despite the ideological distance, geographic proximity is more important than all, and creates a shared life. For that, we are here. Moti worked in Kafr Qassem, he did not talk about coexistence—he lived it."

—Arab Israeli MK Issawi Frej (Meretz), who lives in Kafr Qassem, was one of a group of Arab-Israeli officials who paid a condolence visit to the family of Reuven (Moti) Shmerling, a settler from Elkana who owned a storehouse in the Arab-Israeli town and was murdered there two weeks ago.**
