Just stick to the book,
This review is from: I Saw Ramallah (Paperback)
Its a pity when reviewers confuse the opportunity to review a book purely on its literary merit, for the benefit of potential buyers, with that of the excuse to rant about their own, sometimes distorted, political views. It certainly doesn't help the author who is trying to get his book sold amidst the bile.

This might be more appropriate as a comment on the reviews you regarded as rants?

I agree, I don't see any criticism of the book itself in this "review" to deserve a one star. Has this person read this book? I doubt it.

I am sorry to tell you Mr M. Kaye, that your review is so poor and superficial. Are you reviewing the people or the book? There is no distortion in political views and it is so clear to every reader. This book makes you feel more human, but you need to read it first before sending such groundless comments.

Its a pity you use a review to have a go at other reviewers rather than reviewing the book itself.
A term with the words 'pot' and ''kettle' in comes to mind

The one star you gave here brought the book's rating down for no reason related to the book. Besides that, I did not see any political rantings in the review I read - they all correctly focussed on the book!
