Wow Paul Berman really catches it for his new book in the NY Observer, from Lee Siegel. The only intellectual flight is Berman’s, and why write a 300-page book about a trivial dispute? J’agree. Proportion. And here is Hussein Ibish writing that Berman doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he characterizes Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, as somehow paradigmatic of Palestinian thinking. Thanks to Jack Ross.
