News Nosh 8.8.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday August 8, 2019
 

You Must Be Kidding: 
Israel's public broadcaster Kan removed all episodes available online of a police docudrama set in Jerusalem and police apologized, following a report by Haaretz that officers planted a gun in the house of an East Jerusalem Palestinian in the course of filming the show.

 
Quote of the day:
"The climax of the series was the planting of the gun in Samer Sleiman’s house. That was the moment of truth. That’s how the police operate in the territories. Sometimes they plant evidence, or make up a pretext for brutal behavior. And in general, they plant themselves in places where they shouldn’t be at all. It’s not just the planted weaponry; it’s all based on deceit – the supposedly unoccupied status of the supposedly united city; the dangers exaggerated to the point of absurdity; the security services who fight these dangers and make them worse by their very violent and provocative presence, in Jerusalem as in the West Bank."
--Haaretz commentator Gideon Levy wrote in today's paper.**

Quote of the day:

"We have to look at a pitcher that came from Grandma and Grandpa’s house and ask whom it originally belonged to.”
--Aya Gov, who created the 'Archive of Plunder' as her final project at the Bezalel Academy of the Arts after discovering that her grandfather came into possession of such objects during the war, said that because in Israel there is no organization that represents all of the Palestinians in the discussion regarding the return of stolen property from war, citizens have to ask who are the rightful owners of the objects.*

APN's daily news review from Israel
Sunday July 21, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
“To claim that Israel is the victim of the Palestinians isn’t just to ignore the occupation, it’s to justify its practices entirely.”
—Haaretz commentator Rogel Alpher wrote in an Op-Ed after U.S. peace envoy Jason Greenblatt said in an interview with PBS on Wednesday that "Israel is actually more the victim than the party that's responsible.” Greenblatt also rejected the term "occupied" to describe the West Bank and called the use of the word 'settlements' "pejorative." **

He’s a religious dog who just took part in the arrest of a woman from our settlement.” **

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday July 17, 2019


You Must Be Kidding: 
"At first they said he was under arrest. After half an hour they left. They said he's not under arrest and not anything."
--Fayyed Azzam, brother of Faris, an Arab-Israeli who was shot by soldiers while in his car at a West Bank checkpoint Tuesday. The IDF initially said that Faris was a terrorist that tried to run them over. An Israeli official later claimed the soldiers only aimed at his car and that his moderate wounds are the result of "a family dispute." Faris, who is hospitalized, said he didn't hear them call him to stop because his windows were closed and the A/C was on. Once they opened fire he pressed the gas, fearing they would've killed him had he stopped. Regarding the army’s claim that his brother was suspected of a terror attack, Fayyed said, “They always lie."

Tuesday July 16, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
"It’s hard to decide what’s worse: the ignorance and shamelessness of Education Minister Rafi Peretz, who doesn’t hesitate to determine that a large group of citizens (LGBQT), supposedly with equal rights but who do not conform to rules he regards as the norm, is worthy of being sent for re-education (gay conversion therapy), or the evil and ignorance he demonstrates in his declaration that it’s time to completely take control over the Palestinians and their land while imposing apartheid and a denial of their most basic civil rights."
