Israel Shamir dares see the human side of the Palestinian people and what he sees is mostly heartwarming. If all Israelis were made to see the same thing it would sap the basis of the state of Israel as a land for the "Chosen People". He is certainly accused of ignoring all the criminal acts committed by the Palestinians mostly to defend the land thay still have and which is being taken from them by the square meter; he seems to carry the weight of this criticism graciously.
Shamir puts the question indirectly and that question is: what do you do with five million people under your control when you cannot dare give them all the rights of citizenship, for those within Israel, and the rights of a nation for those outside. Letting all the people in the land of Palestine live together with the same rights and obligations. A dream? Not quite, but this wil require some cataclysmic changes in the world for this to happen. Look at all the cataclysms of the 20th. century and you will understand that cataclysms do not occur so seldom.

Pappe has finally translated one of his first works. The history of the Husayinis is one that should be read by any scholar working on Palestine but it is also a pleasant reading for the occasional reader. Pity that the publisher didn't spot a large amount of typos and other silly mistakes.
