Dear Hisham,

Thank you for your beautiful and perceptive review of my book. I couldn’t have hoped for a better response.

You summed up exactly what I was hoping to achieve with the book, and for that I am deeply grateful.

You indicated that you have criticism of the book’s attempt to find a religious solution to the conflict, but you didn’t elaborate. I would appreciate it if you would explain where exactly you disagree with what I wrote. One of the things I’m learning about how to navigate the Arab-Jewish conflict is that sometimes it is as important to disagree with respect as it is to agree.

Finally: Could you tell me something about yourself? Your professional life? Other details you care to share?

I look forward to being in touch.

Thanks again for reaching out –
