The only language they understand by Nathan Thrall

Israeli flag flies above the Dome Of The Rock

Avi Shlaim, Emeritus Professor of International Relations at Oxford University and JFJFP signatory, reviews Nathan Thrall’s new book, The Only Language They Understand: Forcing Compromise in Israel and Palestine. Although Professor Shlaim finds much to commend in Nathan Thrall’s book, he disagrees with his central thesis that both parties to the conflict understand only the language of force. Based on the historical evidence, Professor Shlaim contends it is only Israel that suffers from that fatal flaw.
