News Nosh 9.24.20

APN's daily news review from Israel - Thursday September 24, 2020

 Quote of the day:

"...(Haaretz Editor-in-Chief) Aluf Benn is wrong when he calls the left-wing criticism of the accords (with the UAE and Bahrain) 'achingly pathetic.' Israel’s control of the territories and its inhabitants and ending the conflict with them are not just the litmus test by which the accords that Israel has signed must be judged – it is the heart of the matter. Benn knows full well that despite the accords, tomorrow a Palestinian will stand humiliated at a checkpoint and when the next Jewish holiday comes around we’ll impose a closure on our neighbors."
--Executive Director of Breaking the Silence, Avner Gvaryahu, writes in an incisive Op-Ed today.*

APN's daily news review from Israel - Tuesday September 22, 2020

Quote of the day:

“It does not take much to imagine how such an event would have ended had the driver been a Palestinian: execution on the spot, before leaving the body out to lie on the ground until a sapper arrived to rule out the possibility of an explosive device. Within minutes of the incident, the police would release a statement about an attempted terror attack.”
—Journalist Oren Ziv compares the police reactions to a suspected car-ramming attack by a Jewish-Israeli and one by a Palestinian.**


You Must Be Kidding: 
"We need to try and kill anyone who raises his hand against a Jew. And he doesn't even have to kill [a Jew], only strike him or want him dead."

Quote of the day:

"Reality ought to have made every Israeli ashamed of their country – because of the occupation, but that’s not all. The violence on the road and on the sidewalk, the aggression, the ignorance, the racism, the ultra-nationalism, the boorishness, the collapsing health system, the army that’s heroic primarily against the weak and built on moral rot, the lack of consideration for others in all realms of life, and now the disgraceful handling of the coronavirus crisis. But wonder of wonders, Israelis are still convinced that they’re the best."
--Gideon Levy in an Op-Ed ahead of the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashana.*

News Nosh 9.15.20

APN's daily news review from Israel  - Tuesday September 15, 2020


Quotes of the Day:

"But if anyone thinks that relations with the Gulf countries will develop without diplomatic compensation with the Palestinians in exchange for the normalization (agreements), let him look at our relationship with Jordan. There are gas exports, there is cooperation in routine security arrangements, but other than that there’s really nothing. This flower of a treaty with the Emirates can either bloom or wilt. It all depends on us."
--Former Israeli minister and retired Brigadier General, Efraim Sneh, writes in an Op-Ed today.**

"Those who fight corruption, on the one hand, and on the other hand abandon the (Israeli) Arabs and do not protect them from Netanyahu's incitement, are stuck in a Gordian knot that cannot be untied. They will be rescued from being stuck only if, like Alexander the Great, they draw their sword and sever the knot once and for all: by declaring aloud that they are proud of the Arab population, by demanding a commission of inquiry into false accusations against Yaakub Abu al-Qiyan (Israeli-Arab who was accused by law enforcement of being a terrorist, when he wasn't), and by demanding to cancel the eviction of all the residents (of the unrecognized village of) Umm al-Hiran."
--Odeh Bisharat writes in an Op-Ed today.
