The Washington Post reviews Nasser Abufarha's new book The Making of a Human Bomb in their "Short Stack" blog today. Reviewer Steven A. Levingston says that Abufarha's "research is extensive and his thesis powerful." But the book may be controversial, he writes. "Abufarha has roiled sensitivities in the past. He was reported to have praised the activities of Palestinian terrorist groups such as Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine." When asked to comment, Abufarha said, "I do not praise violence. To the contrary, I am engaged in research and other forms of political participation towards presenting alternatives to violence." He added, however: "I do not condemn the Palestinian resistance." He said people tend to be obsessed with the violence of the Palestinian groups, overlooking their efforts at political and cultural resistance. "I see that violence may be the ultimate but rarely the only form of engagement for these groups."
