How do you tell a professor that he's, well, slightly incorrect?
Letter to a Palestinian reader: Holocaust, resurrection and Nakba
Unless Israelis recognize the crimes we committed in 1948 and Palestinians recognize the horrors of the Holocaust, there is no chance of reconciliation.
By Yair Auron | May 8, 2014 |
I wish to address you, the Arab reader in general and the Palestinian reader in particular, in advance of the upcoming publication in Arabic of my book “The Holocaust, the Resurrection and the Nakba” (by Madar Press in Ramallah; Resling, 2013; an English translation is due out in late 2014).
His problem is that he assumes (or is ignoring) that the arabs of Mandate Palestine had nothing to do with the Holocaust.
That is quite wrong.
Therefore, his approach is wrong.
