Thursday January 9, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
"For years the Washington-Jerusalem axis has had a tiring debate about the essence of the "credible military threat" toward Iran, which will deter it from breaking into nukes. Well, the answer was given yesterday: a credible military threat is the one you feel when it's in your face. The Iranians felt it and decided that, with all due respect to Shahid Soleimani, the survival of the regime is paramount."
--Yedioth's Middle East analyst, Shimrit Meir, examines the Iranian retaliation to the US assassination of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani.*

APN's daily news review from Israel
Tuesday January 7, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
“When Muslims and Jews meet, even outside of the Middle East, they often feel insecure and suspicious. Even my desire to learn about Jews and Judaism, while living in Gaza, was something I was reluctant to share with others. And if I had never left, I would never have met Jews or Israelis outside of a military confrontation. I would always have been scared of them.”
Mohammed M. writes in Haaretz how being hosted by a Jewish family while participating in a US leadership program that brings Palestinians and Israelis to Washington D.C. to live and work together changed his views.*

Thursday January 2, 2020

 Quote of the day:

"It is Netanyahu’s right to fight the indictments against him. It is his right to ask for immunity. But he has no right to destroy the remainder of the trust of the citizens of the state in its institutions. Without trust there is no law, no institutions, no army, no state."

APN's daily news review from Israel

Wednesday January 1, 2020

Number of the day #1:
30%.
--Amount of Israeli children living under the poverty line, according to new national report.**

Number of the day #2:
100 million.
--The amount of shekels (= $29 million) that the settler organization, Amana, received from taxpayer funds between 2013 to 2015, to promote Jewish settlement on occupied lands, often acting illegally to achieve this goal.*

Quote of the day:

“The justices’ decision is a dramatic and significant step that sets bounds, at least for now, on the rampant criminality in the settlements and the illegal outposts. We hope that in this spirit, the court will rule that no public money should be transferred to Amana ... A situation in which Israel backs the transfer of public money for illegal activity is intolerable, and we urge the government to put a stop to it.”
--Peace Now reacts to the High Court decision forcing settlements to ask for government permission to transfer funds to the Amana settler organization.*

Tuesday December 31st, 2019

 

Quote of the day:

"And perhaps the most terrifying fear of all: the fear that, in fact, all the rules have changed and nobody writes new ones in their place. Because Donald Trump, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, and Binyamin Netanyahu may have nothing in common, except for one rule: there are no more rules. Everything goes."
--In a pre-New Year's Op-Ed, Yedioth commentator Raanan Shaked writes a review of the last decade.*

APN's daily news review from Israel

Monday December 30, 2019

Quote of the day #1:

“The truth is, Jews in Israel are trying to convince themselves and the whole world that ensuring their own rights necessitates the elimination of the Palestinians’ national rights. According to the deluded conception prevailing among right-wingers, the establishment of a Palestinian state means the negation of the fulfillment of Zionism. Since in their eyes, assailing Zionism is tantamount to anti-Semitism, Palestinian nationhood in an independent state is perceived as anti-Semitic.”
Prof. Zeev Sternhell in Op-Ed in today’s Haaretz.

Quote of the day #2:

“I have come to the realization that Trump is one of the most important presidents in US history. In a world where boundaries are blurred, where it is unclear who is good and who is bad, it is good to know that that the world's superpower is led by a person with moral clarity…”
Israel Hayom Editor-in-Chief, Boaz Bismuth, writes in an Op-Ed in today’s paper.
