It was surprising to see a book based on an antisemitic conspiracy theory being given a gushing review by The Spectator. Much less surprising is that ‘Three Worlds: Memoir of an Arab-Jew’, is authored by Avi Shlaim – a Baghdad-born Jew best known for making it his life’s mission to wear his (lucrative) anti-Israel credentials on his sleeve. My response to The Spectator’s review was … Continue reading Three Worlds by Avi Shlaim – a proper review
