It is only the wholely prejudiced who believe what he has to say. Even Shlaim - his Phd examiner and someone who by no stretch of the imagination is blindly pro-Israeli - considers him to be beyond the pale. What miniscule credibility he had disappeared with the Tantura affair and when he writes a book that has Deir Yassin - possibily THE most famous event of 1948 - in the suburbs of Haifa, a miles away from it real location just outside Jerusalem then you have to question his accuracy. Luckily, he gets in first and says in same book: "my bias is apparent despite the desire of my peers that I stick to facts and the `truth` when reconstructing past realities. I view any such construction as vain and presumptuous." - sound like a crusader for the truth? A man whose work is unquestioningly accepted by the "world"? PS hate to break this to you, but the vast majority of the world doesn't care about Israel/Palestine, much as you and I might wish otherwise.
