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.*

News Nosh 1.26.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Sunday January 26, 2020

 
Quote of the Day #1:
“While the world is busy worrying about Trump's declarations and the administration's reactions, the situation on the ground is deteriorating, and the aggression and antagonism of the settlers are only getting stronger."
—Ghassan Douglass, who follows settler activities in the northern West Bank, said after settlers attack and injured a Palestinian father and son.*

Quote of the Day #2:
"Don't say I'm delusional. According to what's going on in the State of Israel, it can still happen, anything can happen. If Miri Regev is the Minister of Culture, Naftali Bennett is Minister of Defense, Amir Ohana is Minister of Justice and David Amsalem is Minister of Communications, then (Kahanist Itamar) Ben-Gvir and Trimbobler (wife of killer of Yitzhak Rabin) can integrate wonderfully around the government table."
--Maariv commentator and radio host, Natan Zahavi, wrote that he would not be surprised if two of the most extreme right-wing people running in the upcoming Israeli elections were to become part of the government.*

News Nosh 1.23.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday January 23, 2020

 
Quote of the Day:
"On this (International Holocaust) Remembrance Day, world leaders are coming to a prime minister who is trying to incite them against the court in The Hague. It’s hard to think of a more galling use of the Holocaust, it’s hard to conceive of a bigger betrayal of its memory than the attempt to undermine the court in The Hague only because it wishes to fulfill its role and investigate Jerusalem."
--Haaretz commentartor Gideon Levy writes on the occasion of the arrival of leaders and dignitaries from from 49 countries to participate today in the 5th annual Holocaust Forum, marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.*

News Nosh 1.22.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday January 22, 2020
 
Quote of the day:
"Gantz, the citizens of the country deserve hope and not imitation - that's not how to replace the prime minister. Annexation is the elimination of any chance of democracy and peace. You've probably forgotten that there is life also after the (election) campaign. The pathetic attempt to scramble a few votes from the right is not worth the destruction of the future of us all."
--Chairman of the Joint List, Ayman Odeh, said in response to Kahol-Lavan leader, Benny Gantz's, declaration that Israel must annext the Beqaa Jordan Valley in the West Bank.*

News Nosh 1.21.20

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

 Quote of the day:
"At least the right wing is consistent.  Not only is incitement against Arabs one of its standard tools to whip up the base, but the right’s ethnocentric and nationalist ideology also mandates a callous disregard for the Arab minority, its history and its demands for full integration and equality. On the left, it’s the other way around: Its leaders’ refusal to engage with Arabs not only contradicts its supposedly liberal worldview, but also lends credence to right-wing efforts to trash the left."
--Haaretz commentator Chemi Shalev writes about the left-wing's refusal to take the outstretched hand of leading Israeli Arab politicians.*

APN's daily news review from Israel
Monday January 20, 2020
 

 You Must Be Kidding: 

Judges ruled to give Ateret Cohanim settler organization the land in E. Jerusalem on which live 23 members of the Rajbi family in a home they bought over 40 years ago, on grounds that the structure was built on land owned by Jews before 1948. Israeli law enables Jews to repossess properties in East Jerusalem that they lost during the 1948 war, but does not allow similar rights to the thousands of Palestinians who lost their property in that war.**

-Comment by an Israeli organizer of a meet at a West Bank settlement for Israeli and Palestinian motorcyclists.*

Quote of the Day #2:
"I am flooded with many hundreds of moving messages of support from students, alumni, and parents.
