APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday July 2, 2015
Quote of the day:
“From now on, Netanyahu is like a baby that has lost its security blanket, or like one whose favorite
teddy bear was thrown into the garbage – the one that warmed his heart during the long nights and infused him
with calm and serenity during times of trouble and election campaigns…No more planning for a glorious commando
operation; no more sowing of widespread, useful nuclear fears; no more fanning of heart-warming, blinding
panic. No more Churchill! Heaven help us. Just housing, and the cost of living, and the budget, and the
coalition, and corruption, and a whole world that insults and scorns and snipes at him.”
--B. Michael writes in Haaretz+ when it became clear that a nuclear deal would be reached between the
world powers and Iran.
You Must Be Kidding:
A Christian IDF soldier admitted to lying to the police and inflicting wounds on
himself when he claimed he was attacked by Muslim Arabs because he joined the Israeli army.
