Product description


The picture that emerges ... is a complex and nuanced one that rewards careful reading ... A refreshing and original study, showing clearly that Muslim anti-Semitism is neither universal, nor inevitable, nor subject to pat explanations. --The Economist

A fascinating, subtle and original analysis of Israeli and Arab historical narratives --Simon Sebag Montefiore

A systematic and scholarly refutation of the simplistic myths that have arisen following the formation of Israel ... The best book on the subject so far Tariq Ali, The Guardian Lucid and penetrating Stephen Howe A standard reference for years to come. Scrupulous in its scholarship, firm in political principle, ruthless in exposure Socialist Review Achcar offers a careful parsing of a most incendiary topic: the use of references to the Holocaust in the rhetoric of the Arab-Israeli conflict ... Calm and judicious in tenor yet unyielding in its intellectual rigor, this selection may show the path out of a seemingly intractable dispute. Booklist --The Guardian, The Independent, Socialist Review, Booklist


Achcar argues that Arab attitudes to the Holocaust are diverse and, since 1948, relate closely to the dynamics of the Arab-Israeli conflict. From Hitler's rise to power up to the present day, he identifies a wide range of reactions among the Arab world's four main idealogical movements: pro-Western liberalism, pan-Arab nationalism, Islamic fundamentalism, and Marxism. This book presents a balanced and original account of Arab responses to the Holocaust.
