The essays deal with different issues, not only the Israel-Palestine conflict. I consider Oz's style a little wordy at times, but he seems quite lucid to me when he addresses the political issues of the conflict. It is a very good book, definitely worth reading, especially in a world that's so full of radical nonsense and victimization theories. Oz says the simple things that should be said every time the Israel-Palestine conflict is being discussed, but seldom are.

The incredible literary power of Amoz Oz flashes forth from time to time in these essays. So too his admirable effort to understand what he calls the war of 'two rights' the right of the Jews of Israel to a state of their own in their own historical homeland and the right of the Palestinian Arabs to a state in a land where they have long lived.

Oz' intense fairness aims at a balance and reasonableness which will convince both sides to abandon maximum claims and recognize part of the divided land as a state belonging to the other people.

There is also something admirable in the Israeli Oz's effort to take the conflict out of the dimension of mutual accusation and blame.

Nonetheless there are historical facts and a historical reality which Oz slurs over. And that is that the conflict throughout has been characterized by Arab intransigence. And that there have been five historical opportunities for the Palestinian Arabs to accept statehood and compromise- and they have rejected them all.

There is another assymetry which is extremely important. It is in the level of humane relation to the other. The Israelis have on the whole been far more humane and decent than the Arabs have. The unspeakable acts of Terror against civilian populations which since the time of the writing of this book have taken on new and more cruel dimensions, of which suicide bombings against civilan populations is the most prominent, indicate a great between the sides in the value they give to human life and suffering.

Oz in covering up the assymetry ingratiates himself to those who believe a 'studied neutrality' is the right attitude toward the conflict, and the only path to its possible solution. But in taking this position and winning many friends for himself especially among the Europeans he sacrifices something very dear indeed, the truth of the reality in question.
