Quote of the day:"I really don't get the your disregard for Jordan. Look at the Israeli citizen, right or left, he does not care about this peace. It is a strange indifference, as if the Israeli public takes us for granted, while Netanyahu acts disdainfully toward the Royal House."

Quote of the day:

"And finally, this is not murder. If Sgt. 1st Class Ben-Yigal was murdered, then 15-year-old Zeid Fadl Qasiya, who was shot to death by soldiers in the Al-Fawar refugee camp, was definitely murdered. If a rock-throwing terrorist is a murderer, then the fighter who shoots teenagers is also a murderer."
--Commentator Gideon Levy writes a sharp Op-Ed about the cycle of violence between Israelis and Palestinians.

Quote of the day:
"When a journalist decides to violate a court order and publish the contents of a banned recorded conversation, the only question is of benefit to the public: is it a crime that was revealed, an obsession that lost proportions, or an orchestrated campaign to oust the Attorney General. The journalist is not a martyr. Journalists are not martyrs - not at the present stage of the contraction of Israeli democracy. Certainly not when they do their deeds with the blessing of government."
--Top Yedioth political commentator, Nahum Barnea, slammed Channel 13 News reporter Ayala Hasson for exposing banned 2010 recordings that have led to an assault on Attorney General Avichai Mendelblitt two weeks before the trial of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.*
