News Nosh 7.2.20

APN's daily news review from Israel - Thursday July 2, 2020

Quote of the day:

"And so, to sum up, what Netanyahu has managed, right now, to do is to burn the stew, to make Israeli initiatives, once again, loathsome to countries around the world, to harm relations with the United States, to quarrel with the neighbor to the east, and to deepen the chasm between the leadership and the people, between the decision makers and the hundreds of thousands of unemployed who do not understand how a government set up to fight corona and the collapsing economy has plunged us all into a far-fetched, unnecessary initiative, that has no connection to a real solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

News Nosh 7.1.20

APN's daily news review from Israel - Wednesday July 1, 2020

Quote of the day:

"Annexation is a policy of belligerence unbecoming of a country that professes to pursue peace. It’s the diplomatic equivalent of unprovoked aggression, one of the staple Israeli accusations against its neighbors. Rather than proving the wisdom and prudence Israel has always boasted of, annexation is provocative, reckless and dangerous...(it) negates efforts to portray Israel as a responsible member of the free world and international community. It casts Israel as a rogue state that defies not only public opinion but international law as well."
--Haaretz commentator Chemi Shalev writes that annexation ruins 53 years of Israeli propaganda, according to which the evils of occupation are the fault of the Palestinians, who refuse to make peace.*

You Must Be Kidding:

News Nosh 6.29.20

APN's daily news review from Israel - Monday June 29, 2020

Quote of the day:

"It will not happen overnight, and it will be done gradually over years, but the path is clear and one-way: a fundamental change in the character of the state and a change in the nature of the Israeli economy. Partial annexation will create a new dynamic. Israel will not only lose its Jewish character, but also its economic and social character."
--Former CEO of Finance Ministry, David Brodt, writes about the implications of Israeli annexation of the West Bank in Yedioth. See translation in Commentary/Analysis below.*

APN's daily news review from Israel  - Thursday June 25, 2020

Quote of the day:

"Israel is the land of memorials. There are more memorials in Israel in relation to the population than in any other country; a memorial for every eight fallen in battle, on average. In Europe there’s a memorial for every 10,000 fallen. Nevertheless, one can hope that someday Israel will confront its past and find those who will dare to take down both the signs and heroes."
--Haaretz+ commentator Gideon Levy on the hope that Israel will one day be able to review its past as the US is.*
