- Concrete Examples
In this detailed retelling of Benjamin Netanyahu’s life – including his childhood, his relationships with his father and brothers, his military service and his political rise – journalist Anshell Pfeffer paints the Israeli prime minister as uncompromising to a fault. Under Netanyahu, Palestinian peace is unlikely, Pfeffer reports, as is any sort of right-left coalition. Pfeffer occasionally defends Netanyahu, as when he absolves the prime minister of responsibility for Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination; but in general, he paints Netanyahu as a hard-edged leader who prefers to rule without dissent.
