and I am glad that I have learned
on 27 August 2017
Some people claim that Benny Morris is not a balanced writer, well you should then consider the views on the Arab side of the conflict, Israel is the single country in the Middle East who allows a honest report on its history. Benny Morris did not hardened his views on the Palestinian side, he just started to see it for what it is, Arab ideology and culture, which very much comprised the Islamic view of life is a distopic, imperialistic and obsolete view of the world. I had the same path, and I am seeing reality for what it is. Regarding the book per se, the author does expose a lot of wrong doing on the Jewish side, and also on the Arab side, there were a lot of things I did not know, and I am glad that I have learned. Talking about the new historians, they got a pass into the inteligentzia with the single and so much loved move that was "to denounce Israel and kowtow to Barbaric Islamism", Benny woke up to this reality, a reality that Ilan Pappe, Noam Chomsky, Avram Shalaim and so many others are still buried in.
