According to eminent historian Benny Morris, "Christopher Hitchens, one of the most important journalists in the English-speaking world (a columnist for Vanity Fair, a contributing editor to The Atlantic), is of two minds about the Islamic Arab world. Or, rather, for him it is divided in two - the Palestinians and all the rest" and he "needs to take a long, hard look at Palestinian history and at the nature, behavior and aims of the Palestinian national movement" - No love for Muslims, unless they're Palestinian

Unfortunately, too many observers these days tend to sweep history under the carpet in much the same way.
