The Least of all Possible Evils

Issue section: 

Eyal Weizman

Eyal Weizman's last book, Hollow Land, was a groundbreaking study of the occupation of Palestine. In it he outlined how settlement building has always been at the front line of the war against the Palestinians, how land is taken by force and justified at a later date in the courts.

In his new book he is at his strongest when discussing Israeli "humanitarian violence" in Gaza. The title is a quotation from an Israeli court case that was brought by Palestinian landowners who were told that the apartheid wall was set to go through their village.
