Right-wing Journalist: How can you say that you are a Palestinian first and foremost, but do not want to be part of a Palestinian state, preferring to be part of the State of Israel, which is a Jewish state?

I say - let's live in two countries for two nations despite what I said.”

News Nosh 1.30.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday January 30, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
“The White House looked like Habayit Hayehudi (nationalist-religious Zionist party) the other day, awash in kippot and Yiddishkeit. Does one have to be an anti-Semite to wonder about this? With all the wheeler-dealer peacemakers – all these Friedmans, Adelsons, Greenblatts, Kushners and Berkowitzes, these supposedly fair and unbiased mediators, it’s impossible to even think about the start of a fair accord. It’s not hard to guess what goes through the mind of every Palestinian and every seeker of justice at the sight of this all-Jewish and all-right-wing class picture.”
Gideon Levy writes in Haaretz+ that the unfair Trump plan is the start of the third Nakba.*

News Nosh 1.28.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Tuesday January 28, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
“If you look at the dictionary, you'll understand (the Palestinian entity laid out in the Trump plan) isn't the definition of a state. That is not what the plan allows, and so the resistance from the Right and the rabbis is a mistake."
--Unnamed 'senior US official' tells 'Israel Hayom' that right-wing does not have to be concerned that the Trump plan gives Palestinians a state.*

You Must Be Kidding: 
"Over the course of the past decade, the likelihood of separation has diminished. The right-wing is creating the reality of one large, binational state…Another neighborhood and another outpost - and the binational state, which will be non-Jewish and non-democratic, is forming. So maybe, who knows, this is the last opportunity the right-wing can be a part of. So the choice is not between the Clinton outline, the Geneva Initiative or the John Kerry draft in 2014 and the Trump deal. The choice is between a bi-national state and the Trump deal."
--Yedioth's right-wing commentator Ben-Dror Yemini says the threat of the illegal expansion of the settlement enterprise on the side of Israel should be reason enough to convince the Zionist left-wing leaders to accept the Trump plan.*
