Quote of the day:

“There is no justice (for Palestinians) in the (Israeli) courts. Anyone who tells you otherwise there is a liar. I can be arrested for months for a traffic violation, but they (who murdered my wife) have all been released, even though their trial is not over. Nothing has happened for months.”

News Nosh 4.28.20

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

Quotes of the day:
“I want to convey to Israeli society and the world a message stemming from my deep, bleeding wound: This conflict has taken victims from all of us, and it does not distinguish between combatants and civilians, between men and women, between adults and children. So I say to you: Enough hatred and resentment. Let’s live in peace and love because we [Palestinians], just like you, love life and are doing our best just to get by.”
--Yakoub Rabi, whose wife Aisha was killed in 2018 by a settler teen, said in a speech at the Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony Monday night.*

"What is threatening to many members of the Israeli public about the (joint) Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony, even in its virtual format this year, is not only the cooperation with the 'enemy.' While on an overt level the ceremony arouses harsh opposition because of the standing shoulder to shoulder alongside bereaved Palestinian parents and siblings: In the public subconscious the ceremony is frightening because it challenges the necessity of death. By its very nature, the ceremony undermines the official effort to provide a series of justifications for death, in order to alleviate the pain somewhat, so that death will be acceptable. And of course that helps to prepare the ground for a continuation of the occupation and the fighting."
--Yaki Sagi, a clinical psychologist, writes in Haaretz.**

"Where is the Shin Bet when you need it, where are the police and the security forces? Who will protect us from the tens of thousands of ticking bombs that will be found at the foot of our children's rooms and bedrooms? For 20 years we were scared to death of them, 20 years we were warned about them, since the Second Intifada we have not allowed them to stay here (overnight) and suddenly the danger was gone and with it, the ban on staying overnight in Israel."
--Gideon Levy writes about how corona changed Israelis' perception of Palestinians - even if for a short time.***

Quote of the day:

"There will come a day when both Israeli-Arabs and ultra-Orthodox Jews will feel that they can play a full part in this connection. Whether they want it or not, Israel is a part of them."
--Top Yedioth political commentator, Nahum Barnea, writes about Memorial Day and Independence Day, which together express the partnership of the fate that invites us to live here, "for good and for bad."*

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

Quotes of the Day:
