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

 
Quote of the day:
"The entire infrastructure that has been built over the years to advance the interests of Israel in the U.S. is quaking in its boots - not because of the badly developed arguments of a rookie Congresswoman - but because of the coming generational change in U.S. views of Israel...Americans who seek to protect and advance (Israel's) interests should no more reflexively embrace the views of the Israeli government than they do those of a pro-Brexit UK government or an anti-refugee Italian government. Israel's defenders would like the relationship to be deemed so important that it must not be criticized. This echoes the position, say, of the Saudis in the wake of the Khashoggi murder. And it is just as indefensible."
--David Rothkopf looks at the core issue behind Rep. Ilhan Omar's comment - whether the U.S. should continue to reflexively embrace the views of the Israeli government.*

Thursday February 7, 2019
