The New Yorker: The Critics: Books: “Rather touchingly, Lewis, who has always admired the Ottoman Empire at its best, writes that ?the Ottoman heritage is more perfectly preserved in Israel . . . than in any of the other countries of the region.? But then, judging from Lewis?s own writings, I would rather have been a Jewish subject of the Ottoman Empire than an Arab in territories occupied by Israel.”
