Wednesday November 6, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
“I don’t know whether to describe myself as an Israeli Arab or a Palestinian. I’m Palestinian to the same degree that I’m Israeli. I’m Palestinian as a fact, and in my identity, but I live in the State of Israel. But what’s important is that food enables people to reveal themselves to one another.”
--Osama Dalal, an Israeli Arab chef from Acre, who has been chosen by the Jewish-Israeli owners of '12 Chairs Cafe,' one of the most popular Israeli eateries in Manhattan, to demonstrate the wonders of Palestinian cuisine in a private room at

Tuesday November 5, 2019
 

Quote of the day:
"How tense is the business here right now? It's hanging by the thread. But neither side wants to go down that slope, and (both) make efforts so it doesn't happen.

News Nosh 10.30.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday October 30, 2019


You Must Be Kidding #1:
The IDF sentenced an Israeli soldier, who admitted that he had fired his weapon without his commanders' permission toward Othman Rami Halas, a 16-year-old Palestinian boy at the Gaza border fence on July 13, to 30 days of the military equivalent of community service.**

You Must Be Kidding #2:
The IDF said the soldier was not tried for killing the boy because there was no proof that the soldier's action caused the boy’s death. That is despite the fact that the IDF tried the soldier for shooting specifically at Othman Rami Halas and a video shows the boy trying to climb the border fence and then falling to the ground. He was shot in the torso and his death was declared shortly afterward in the field.**

APN's daily news review from Israel
Sunday October 27, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
"A prime minister has two assets: the law that gives him his high standing and the trust that the public holds in him. The newspaper owner has two assets: the readers' confidence and the professional resilience of the journalists who work at his newspaper. The recordings from the Netanyahu-Mozes talks, some of which (journalist) Raviv Drucker aired last night on Channel 13, collapse the basis for the trust that both of these people stand on."
--Top Yedioth political commentator Nahum Barnea writes about the recording of his publisher and his prime minister.*
