David Cesarani reviewed this recently discovered book in the July 9th JC. His final sentence in his review was especially compelling.
The SD (the Nazi Security Service) recorded various reports during the final deportations. Among reports it received were also reports that "...among people who have been bombed out you can hear statements saying that if we had not treated the Jews so badly, we would not have suffered so much from terror attacks".
Try placing the word 'Palestinians' in that sentence instead of the word 'Jews'. I suggest we might one day hear that very statement from Israeli citizens, and even from those of us who maintain that Israel can do no wrong and must never be criticised. Are we intelligent enough to heed such a lesson?
