Re: news from israel (americans for peace now)

Quote of the day:
"But what kind of proportionality does the military justice system convey when it rules that smuggling lethal weapons is so many times more serious than lethally discharging one? That is, unless the message is that in a simple criminal case those who might be killed are Israeli Jews, while in the other case the person who was actually killed was an Arab." --Haaretz commentator writes that IDF's morality is on the line today in its ruling over whether to accept appeal of conviction of Elor Azaria, who executed an incapacitated Palestinian assailant.*
You Must Be Kidding:
Israel and Turkey declared a ceasefire after battling a two-day war on Twitter.**

Jordanian journalist tells Yedioth reporter Smadar Perry in Amman:
“You got yourselves in deep trouble. After you killed the unarmed youth [who allegedly stabbed or tried to stab the Israeli security guard –OH] and a man who was friendly to Israelis [the Jordanian landlord – OH], and then turned the guard-murderer into a hero, who will agree to do business with you?”

APN's daily news review from Israel
Thursday July 28, 2017

Quote of the Day #1:
"When I heard that the terrorist remained alive, it did me in. Because in the next deal, they'll release him. Afterward, I understood that 'A.' did the right thing." --Shmuel Salomon, whose father, brother and sister were murdered by a Palestinian teen in Halamish settlement. 'A.', a neighbor serving in the army, shot and injured the attacker, stopping him, but A. did not execute him.* A. is expected to receive an IDF hero's medal.*

Quote of the Day #2:
"Now it turns out that what happened in Jordan was not a (terror) attack, but a dispute that boiled over into a shooting incident, in which in the end, the (Israeli) guard shot and killed two Jordanians - and not the attacker who held the screwdriver and tried to stab him. That is not how an incident like that is supposed to end. The closeness of the two incidents, and the political and public reaction, sharpen the question over who is really fit to be called a hero.” --Yedioth military analyst Yossi Yehoshua writes why the IDF will give A. a hero's medal.*
