Quotes of the Day:

The internal security minister attacks the institutions he's responsible for. The Cabinet attacks the IDF, and the prime minister attacks everyone."

News Nosh 1.30.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday January 30, 2019
 
Quote of the day:
"I have looked in-depth at today's self-absorbed leadership. It is not interested in you, and not in us. Believe me, I am very proud of our country and will never be ashamed of it. But lately more and more people, both right and left, myself included, are deeply embarrassed by the way our leadership conducts itself. A strong government governs to unite and doesn’t govern in order to separate, to rule."

Sunday January 27, 2019
 
Quote of the Day #1:
"Between those who believe that the whole command and investigations at the Police Lahav 433 anti-fraud unit - whom the majority there are Likudniks - made an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades to remove Netanyahu and between those who know the truth. Between those who think that Attorney General Avichai Mendelblitt, a Beitar of Beitar, a more Jabotinsky ideologue than Jabotinsky, a Jew who became religiously observant, who was Netanyahu's cabinet military secretary and whom Netanyahu appointed to all his positions, defected to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and decided to bring down a prime minister in Israel because he received signals in Morse code from his operator, (Israel President) Rubi Rivlin, and between those who know he didn’t."
--Maariv political commentator Ben Caspit in a sharp Op-Ed about who is against whom in the upcoming Israeli elections.*
