    Farouq is a Morrocan, not a Palestinian. There’s a huge difference. Also you wrote ‘the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians’ That sentence should have made parallel: Israel and Palestine, or, given that the whole land belong to Palestine and the Jews are occupiers and invaders, ‘the Plaestine terrorities’ would have sufficed. Couldn’t have imagined a review without the rape. The book is incomplete without that moment when the reader is yanked out of the fantasy-Julius-is-an-angel-land.
