What on earth does the PA's representation of the Palestinian people have to do with the content or value of this book? If there was an election in Palestine tomorrow and Hamas won, would it change the history described in the book? No. If the PA were all assassinated tomorrow and replaced with a legion of Angels, would it change the history described in the book? No. Who rules by what representation doesn't influence whether the book is historically valid and of use ... and Haaretz published this stupid question for what terribly insightful reason?
