APN's daily news review from Israel - Monday June 8, 2020

Quote of the day:

"In '47, they were offered to settle for half of Palestine, but they refused and lost a considerable share of the land. In 1967, they and their Jordanian patrons lost everything else. They came to Oslo weak, so they agreed to give up three-quarters of Palestine, provided they had an independent state in less than a third of the territory. Now the Jews want to gnaw on what remains."
--Maariv Middle East analyst, Jacky Khougy, shares the Palestinian view of Israel's plans to annex West Bank land.*

Joint List Chairman, Ayman Odeh, said in a speech to demonstrators at a joint Jewish-Arab rally in Tel Aviv against Israeli plans to annex West Bank settlements.*

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday June 4, 2020
 
Quote of the day:
“I’ve seen Jews who are physically assaulting, not threatening with their finger and with their tone, physically attacking military commanders, and they (the commanders) let it pass. What happens in the Negev reminds us of what is happening in the US. There is an oppressed population here that has been persecuted for many years. It is neglected and is in the country's backyard, suffering from poverty, unemployment, house demolitions, communities with no water and no roads and no electricity. It’s worse than Somalia and no one is dealing with that."
--Former Bedouin minister, Taleb A-Sannaa, responds to the inflammatory reactions of Jewish Israelis to the video of Bedouin young men riding SUVs and surrounding a military vehicle and later arguing vehemently with Israeli military officers.*

“Today it comes down to this: what are you going to do about it? When actions are taken that threaten the viability of two states living side by side in peace and security, what do you say? What do you do?"
--In an Op-Ed in Haaretz, President of Americans for Peace Now, Hadar Susskind, examines why the “mainstream" Jewish organizations, who all tout their support of a two-state solution, are silent about Israel’s intention to annex Palestinian Territories on July 1st.**

News Nosh 5.31.20

APN's daily news review from Israel
Sunday May 31, 2020

 Quote of the day:
"Border Police officers claimed they believed he was holding a gun – there was none – and when they called out for him to stop, he started running. The penalty was death. The Border Police, the most brutal of all units, knows no other way to overpower a fleeing autistic Palestinian except to execute him."
--Haaretz's Gideon Levy writes about the killing by two Israeli Border Policemen of Eyad Hallaq, a 32-year-old autistic man, who was on his way to the Elwyn Center for disabled people.*
You Must Be Kidding: 

"The shooting in Jerusalem, as horrible as it was, did not take place on racial background, but in the context of a nationalist conflict, which unfortunately creates terror. Just this week there were those who told us an intifada was the natural and desired result of all the talk about extending sovereignty. That is the reason for police presence in Jerusalem, and that is the background for the tension."
--'Israel Hayom' commentator Eithan Orkibi writes a whole Op-Ed saying declaring is no parallel of racism between the killing by police of George Floyd in Minneapolis and of Eyad Hallaq in Jerusalem, yet the only actual refute is the paragraph above, which fails to explain why there cannot be racism toward an occupied people.**

News Nosh 5.26.20

APN's daily news review from Israel - Tuesday May 26, 2020

Quote of the day:

"If you discount the disgraceful events of Sunday outside the courtroom at Jerusalem District Court, where Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stood trial for bribery, fraud, and breach of trust, it was not entirely a bad day. After all, Sunday's events proved that we do live in a law-abiding country, where we can find a modicum of equality before the law for the rich as much as for the poor, the weak as much as the strong."
-- Former politician and journalist, Shelly Yachimovich, wrote in an interesting Op-Ed in Yedioth.*
