APN's Daily News Review from Israel - Sunday April 26, 2020


Quotes of the Day:

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

Quote of the day:

"Where the weakening of democracy and the justice system are concerned, the elimination of an alternative to (Netanyahu’s) rule, the future of the occupied Territories and the power of the High Court, Netanyahu's deserves a grade of 9 out of 10 (for fulfilling his election promises). What does Gantz deserve? Students who had a particularly hard time would once have received the following grade on their end-of-year report cards: 'Graduates to second grade but not at our school.'"
--Yedioth political analyst Nahum Barnea gives grades to the leaders of Likud and Kahol-Lavan for their unity government agreement on the basis of the fulfillment of their election promises.*

Quote of the day:
"Hatred for Arabs turns to gratitude for their contribution to the health care system as nurses, physicians, pharmacists and hospital employees, and Palestinians in the Territories become, if only briefly, partners in a shared fate, exposed to the same danger. It’s a good time to ask what is it that we have been fighting over for generations."
--—A Haaretz Editorial suggests that issues which until recently seemed all-important, such as nationalism, ethnic identity and religion, fall away in the face of a pandemic.*

"I don't understand why I'm good enough to work in Israel, but not good enough for the Israelis to test me."
--A Palestinian worker at an Israeli chicken factory, which Palestinians point to as the source of West Bank coronavirus outbreak.*

Corona Craziness:
A lengthy unity government negotiation meeting between Kahol-Lavan leader Benny Gantz and israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took place this week between the Prime Minister's study and his patio. Gantz stood in the patio of the official residence, while Netanyahu remained in his study and the two leaders shouted to each other because Netanyahu is in quarantine.**

Double irony: On the holiday celebrating the Jewish people's liberation from slavery in Egypt and in a reverse of situations dating back to Israel's military rule over its Arab citizens, Jewish Israelis will be under curfew in their homes on Passover, while the country's Arab citizens will be free to move.***
