Tuesday February 19, 2019

 
Quote of the day:

Monday February 18, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
"I am really ashamed. I grew up in Canada and there there is diversity. It isn’t a perfect model, but it is better than growing in a bubble. In our home, the children learn that there are good and bad people everywhere in the world, regardless of religious belief, and do not hate or fear the other."

Quote of the day:

News Nosh 2.13.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday February 13, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
"The entire infrastructure that has been built over the years to advance the interests of Israel in the U.S. is quaking in its boots - not because of the badly developed arguments of a rookie Congresswoman - but because of the coming generational change in U.S. views of Israel...Americans who seek to protect and advance (Israel's) interests should no more reflexively embrace the views of the Israeli government than they do those of a pro-Brexit UK government or an anti-refugee Italian government. Israel's defenders would like the relationship to be deemed so important that it must not be criticized. This echoes the position, say, of the Saudis in the wake of the Khashoggi murder. And it is just as indefensible."
--David Rothkopf looks at the core issue behind Rep. Ilhan Omar's comment - whether the U.S. should continue to reflexively embrace the views of the Israeli government.*

Thursday February 7, 2019
