APN's daily news review from Israel
Friday, August 17, 2018

Quote of the day:
“In the summer of 2018, the lives of dozens of soldiers and civilians were spared. Their time may come in another year, two years or three. But today and tomorrow they’re here. Their families weren’t shattered, graves weren’t dug, eulogies were not delivered. What’s been said of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu many times in the past remains true today: He doesn’t rush to send soldiers into war, certainly a war that’s unnecessary and pointless and after which we will only return to square one. He has also succeeded in recruiting to this judicious and mature policy of containment a defense minister (Avigdor Lieberman), who took over that portfolio two years ago in the guise of James Bond, Rambo and Conan the Barbarian. The size and bitterness of the pill that Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman had to swallow for negotiating with Hamas, with vigorous Egyptian mediation, on the terms of an agreement or 'arrangement,' are beyond measure.”
