Quote of the day:
"Isolating the Palestinians and rendering them irrelevant is a central pillar of Netanyahu’s campaign to push them into a corner, crush their aspirations, smash their expectations and bring them back, with a thud, to a reality in which they must make do with the status quo for the time being and with an administrative autonomy, at best, as a permanent solution. In order to weaken the Palestinians further, Netanyahu is playing divide and rule between Gaza and the West Bank, even if this requires an accommodation with Hamas that disappoints his right-wing base."
--Haaretz's Chemi Shalev writes that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's policies could explode in Israel's face.*

Quote of the Day #2:
“Yes, in the State of Israel, Arab women can also stay in shelters for battered women.

The ruler and his wife are so merciful that they allow all sectors (and all genders, if they are threatened) to be protected under their protective roof.”

Quote of the day:
"The establishment of the state left behind a considerable amount of destruction, houses were destroyed, families were separated (as in many other wars). It is possible to celebrate the state without denying that. To allow Israeli Arabs to mourn this loss does not require denying Israel's right to exist, it requires only a little empathy."

--Inbal Levy, a settler in Ofra, who recently established a compound of B&Bs there, failed to advertise on Airbnb.*

Quote of the Day #2:
