Amos Oz’s provocative new work, Judas, has an urgent feel to it; almost as if Oz is trying to settle some kind of score.

Oz is a deeply complicated man who has staunchly defended Israel’s right to exist and fought valiantly in two of its wars, but has been for decades one of its fiercest critics. He was among the first to call for a two-state solution back in 1967, and hasn’t really wavered in his belief that Israel has lost its moral footing while dealing with the Palestinians.
