    I admire Michel Warschawski's activism. However his analysis is extremely flawed and is based at the end of the day on securing a future for Israel. Quite rightly he says that US power is waning in the region but refuses to draw any conclusions. In particular there is no mention of the fact that Warshawski helped blind people to the worst catastrophe since the Nakba. I refer to the Oslo Accords whose purpose was clear from the start. To replace Israeli police with the facts of Palestinians. It created a collaborationist regime in Ramallah which is an additional layer of oppression. His account of Sharon, the butcher of Sabra and Chatilla, as a visionary is grotesque. As is his description of Ben Gurion, who not only expelled most Palestinians but place the needs of the Zionist state above any attempt to rescue Jews from the holocaust. Warshawski is an activist who has a political blindness.

Despite the singular features of Palestinian mourning, what ultimately stands out in Dr. Maram Masarwi’s new book is the human, universal similarity between Arab and Jewish loss.
