Tuesday September 3, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
“I suppose the message today from the Likud campaign will be something like, ‘Ayoub Kara is a leftist who collaborates with the enemies of Israel, the New Israel Fund, the cable and satellite council and George Soros, with the aim of ousting an incumbent prime minister, establishing a Hamas state whose capital is at Channel 13 in Givatayim and appointing Azmi Bishara as Minister of Defense.’”
--Maariv’s senior political commentator Ben Caspit guesses the Likud reaction to the recordings released that reveal Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu shouting at then-Communications Minister, Ayoub Kara, telling him what he expected him to do on Netanyahu's behalf.*

News Nosh 8.28.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday August 29, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
"I’m not comfortable being a G-string covering the nakedness of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as he boasts to every ambassador that 'Israel is the only democratic oasis in the Middle East.' I use the G-string as a metaphor because the metaphor of a fig leaf is obvious. The G-string, in contrast, is barely seen and barely felt, and we barely see or feel this democracy, which we are supposed to celebrate."
--Tamer Nafar, a Palestinian citizen of Israel and a renowned rapper, writes that - despite everything - Arabs in Israel should vote.*

Quote of the day:
“(Ayelet) Shaked and (Bezalel) Smotrich have decided to turn the entire population into settlers.

Tuesday August 20, 2019

 
Quote of the day:

In my unit, for example, we were sent to break into the homes of innocent Palestinians to try out new tools designed for use in break-ins."
