APN's daily news review from Israel
Monday January 14, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
"As per the ancient words, "Thou shall not murder,' for G-d's sake! What is the point of living in a Jewish state, and going through so many trials and tribulations to protect it, if the officials of this country do not see fit to condemn such an abysmal act? How are we different from other nations, if the murder of an innocent woman does not shake us, just because the murderer comes from among us (allegedly), and the murdered person is the daughter of another nation?"
--Maariv commentator Shai Lahav slams right-wingers who either support the Jewish terror suspects in the murder of a Palestinian woman or who stay silent about the murder and the attacks on the Shin Bet, which detained and interrogated the suspects.*

Sunday January 13, 2019

 
Quote of the day:

Wednesday January 9, 2019

APN's daily news review from Israel
Tuesday January 8, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
“The Netanyahu government is carrying out a dangerous and underhanded step in order to avoid public criticism in Israel and worldwide – it is no coincidence that this was done immediately after the announcement of the election, when public attention in Israel is directed at political developments and during the Christmas holiday, when the entire Christian world is on vacation."
