When an Israeli terrorist soldiers want to comment about academic literature

This terrorist Israeli soldier who brags about being part of the Israeli occupation army, and of sneaking into Lebanon with a Canadian passport claims this in his book PumpkinFlowers" (which was rarely revised in US) that :“My intention here is not to get bogged down in historical explanation. I would rather suggest the title of a comprehensive history of these years of the Lebanon 'security zone' in the 1990s, for those interested in background, and continue Avi's story uninterrupted; unfortunately no such history has been written." (p. 19).  In fact, Mundhir Jabir of the Lebanese University published an encyclopedic account of the "security zone", and I had reviewed it for the Journal of Palestine Studies. (thanks James)
