Quotes of the day:
"It is impossible to keep a hold over a state for 100 years. Because of the strength of the people living in the vicinity of Gaza…some say that it is possible to manage the conflict and not to resolve the conflict. (But) our strength is also a shot in the foot because it allows us not to solve the problem."
—Aviva Loten, a resident of Moshav Dekel, which is adjacent to the Gaza Strip, said after dozens of rockets were shot into Israel from Gaza and she spent the night in the safe room. (Maariv)

"The rocket attack is a surprise only if we allow ourselves to forget the wider context of the daily reality of occupation — from arrests of Palestinian children in their classrooms to settler attacks on Palestinian farmers — or the siege on Gaza, which has left the Gazans impoverished and hopeless."
--Journalist Haggai Matar writes in +972mag.*

"Netanyahu is not willing to take the additional step that would lead to a cease-fire or a long-term arrangement with Hamas. All he has to do is make a courageous decision to say that in exchange for Hamas' agreement to such a move, Israel will agree to a thorough and comprehensive reconstruction of Gaza in order to improve the standard of living and well-being of Gaza's residents."
—Maariv's Intel correspondent, Yossi Melman, in today's Op-Ed.**

News Nosh 3.14.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday March 14, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
"Netanyahu, your devotion to the mission was the symbol of your strength as a soldier and a commander. Now, when the goal is only your personal survival, that ability has turned into a double-edged sword being stabbed into all of our bodies, right-wing and left-wing alike."
--Avshalom 'Abu' Vilan, who once fought in the army alongside Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, calls out against Netanyahu's incitement against the left-wing and asks him to think about the good of the state and not preserving his seat.*

News Nosh 3.13.19

APN's daily news review from Israel
Wednesday March 13, 2019

 
Quote of the day:
"What took place between Givat Assaf and Abu Shukhaydam occurs every night and it’s only the absence of documentation that prevents the expose of the pure evil on the part of the world’s most moral army. The nausea and disgust are overwhelming, and then comes the anger and shame. All of it takes place very quickly. 'Say hello, say it,' 'It’s a celebration, you idiot,' 'Goodbye forever.' The sounds of blows to the head, blow after blow, the moaning of the father and son, the sounds of the helpless, the giggles of the abusers."
--Haaretz prints on its front page an Op-Ed by journalist Gideon Levy damning Israeli society, following the court release of video filmed by soldiers showing them brutally beating a Palestinian father and son who were detained.*
