Latest Sunday Column for the Elder of Ziyon

Michael L.

The Elder was kind enough to publish my latest Sunday column entitled, Book Review: What Do You Buy the Children of the Terrorist Who Tried to Kill Your Wife?

Here is a tid-bit:

gershon1Harris-Gershon's book was written, therefore, as part of a healing process. It is deeply personal and demonstrates a braveness of character. It is not everyone, after all, who has the strength to bare oneself to the world in the way that Harris-Gershon does, as he tries to understand the motivation of the killer and what that means not only to himself and his wife, but to the State of Israel, if not the Jewish people, as a whole.

 As someone familiar with Harris-Gershon's writings on Israel I expected an anti-Israel narrative in his book and, through the first third, was pleasantly surprised to find none of the usual malicious insinuations, self-righteousness chest-beating, acidic implications of Jewish-Israeli racism, or the kind of general contempt one usually finds within a Harris-Gershon Daily Kos "diary."
