how can you presume to:
a) know what the "political palestininans" think of a particular book?
b) know that they are "seizing" on a book which is merely advertised, along
with others?

Who has the political agenda here?  A University (!) web site which lists
various books.... or someone who describes the inner motivations of
"political palestinians"?
