Monday September 3, 2018
 
Quote of the day:
"One can believe that the settlers of the outpost really thought that this was not private land belonging to Palestinians, but it is difficult to attribute total innocence and honesty to anyone who builds without permits in an illegal outpost.

--Peace Now's Settlement Watch Director, Hagit Ofran, explains in five points in Ynet that there is no way that the Israeli outpost, which was built on privately owned Palestinian land, was established in 'good faith,' as the Jerusalem District Court claimed.*

News Nosh: 8.31.18

APN's daily news review from Israel
Friday, August 30, 2018

Quote of the day:
“One government minister told me recently that the Arabs in Israel usually behave as an exemplary minority, certainly considering the ongoing conflict, and that most of them truly aspire to become part of Israeli society. But that cannot be said publicly, he told me, because in Israel such a statement costs you two or three Knesset seats.”
--Haaretz+ commentator, Ravit Hecht, writes that there is only a “thin veneer that still masks the racist regime in Israel,” where the right-wing government passes the Nation-State Law, right-wing politicians incite against Arabs, the court approves the seizure of privately-owned Palestinian land to give to settlers, and where many support the convicted ex-soldier Elor Azaria, from a “deep-seated fundamental belief that a Palestinian who did wrong should be killed on the spot, like a stray dog.”
