    Little did I imagine when I was around 30% into the novel that I would award it 4 since I was seriously considering to putt up my hands up and surrender any hope to enjoy this novel The main character annoyed me to no end and I wanted to slap his laziness out of him Still the writing slowly grew on me and the ideas put forward made me ponder and discuss them with my father who is a world politics enthusiast I still did

review · eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ Amos Oz

Ivo de la expulsión de sus predecesores En la aparente rutina ue se crea en la casa el tímido Shmuel siente una progresiva agitación causada en parte por el deseo y la curiosidad ue Atalia le provoca También retoma su investigación sobre la imagen de Jesús para los judíos y la misteriosa y maldita figura de Judas Iscariote la supuesta encarnación de la traición y la mezuindad va absorbiéndole sin remedi. On Hurting God There must seem something paradoxical to some of the religious folks in the idea that anyone could in anyway hurt God or his relative They thus want to argue that such people who might have done something against God were in fact folks who just wanted to Give the God and relations leverage to create drama or God made them that way for drama Many versions of Ramayana would have you believe that Ravana in fact was a devotee of Rama and all he did was to get killed from same talk about Machoist love Bible said God made Pharaoh refuses Moses offers so that he could bring plagues to Egypt to prove his existence and then they blame me for creating scenes a Borges version said Pharaoh was intentionally serving God by refusing Moses offers and letting his people suffer and die On Judas It is thus natural that a similar argument should be visited upon Judas by some of Christians How could anyone betray Jesus No it makes sense to believe Judas was in one way or other serving Jesus And yet had it not been for Judas there might not have been a crucifixion and had there been no crucifixion there would have been no Christianity In this case there is a lot of room for arguments some of them are forwarded by the author himself Though two most obvious ones aren t why should Judas kill himself after seeing Jesus death What kind of guilt did he feel if he wants Jesus to die It would have made sense if he had killed himself on seeing Jesus rise again ain t it Again if Jesus had foreknowledge of what was about to happen as he showed at the last supper then why didn t he left the place Oz isn t the first man to see those holes in the story they are so very old A very impressive short story on same lines is Judas Iscariot by Leonid Andreyev On Traitors Anyways Judas has been turned into an unwilling brand ambassador of all traitors the only others I know who have anything even vaguely approaching his popularity are Brutus and Vibhishana Judas also came to be a major reason behind Christian prejudice for Jews though he had turned Christian understandable religious people do not like to think evil people belong to their religion Though as a character in book argues that Christians would have found one reason to hate Jews one way or otherCan a traitor be in fact serving his mater by hisher betrayal Oz should know being labeled a traitor by some people in his own country Anyone willing to change Shmuel said will always be considered a traitor by those who cannot change and are scared to death of change and don t understand it and loathe change For a person wants a change because he is not happy with present ways and people who are not satisfied with something are going to criticise it Those who refuse to change think of it betrayal Oz was called traitor because he supported two nation solution like a character Abravanal within the novel The ultra nationalists who call then that must be like those RSS BJP supporters who think anyone differing with them is a traitor On Israel and Nationalistm Abravanal was perhaps too idealist in believing that Jews and Arabs could live together without there being a nation of any sort needing a military etc he believed there should be no nations at all He believed that Jews and Arabs have both suffered at hands of Europe and so can be natural friends what he forgot was that they had trust issues understandably with exactly because of that very reason The fact is that all the power in the world cannot transform someone who hates you into someone who likes you It can turn a foe into a slave but not into a friend All the power in the world cannot transform a fanatic into an enlightened man All the power in the world cannot transform someone thirsting for vengeance into a lover Shmuel who is a bit of baby boy too saw how unjust it was And even if we suppose that Shealtiel Abravanel was right in his opinion that all nation states were a disaster and a scourge even if he was right in saying that the scourge of nationalism would soon disappear and all states would wither surely at least until the vision of a stateless world finally became a reality at least so long as every nation had bars on its windows and bolts and locks on its doors was it not also ght that the Jewish nation should have a small house with bolts and bars just like all the others And especially after a third of this nation was slaughtered a few years earlier only because they did not have a house or a door with a lock or a piece of territory of their own Or an army and weapons to defend themselves When the day came that all the nations would finally rise up to demolish the walls dividing them then definitely by all means we too would willingly demolish the walls we had built around us and happily join in the general festivities Even if out of neurotic caution perhaps this time we would not necessarily be the first in the world to give up our bolts and bars Perhaps this time for a change we would be the third in the world or the fourth in our region Just to be on the safe side In the end that is the only argument for nations to exist lack of mutual trust among peopleIt is a novel of ideas and is at its best when discussing them The plot line is thin The areas where it does try to have a plot are the weakestFinally if you really care about my opinion I think both Jewish claims based on their religious books and Arab s claims of owning land for having lived their for centuries are eually stupid You do not own a land just because you were there first or have been there for centuries which is another thing those Hindu nationalists of my country don t understand It is inhuman to ask people to leave their home or to deny homes to those in need on basis of those absurd reasons even if it is for two state solution which is just the best of bad solutions Anyone should have a right to live anywhere provided their innocence Right To me the blame for the problem really lies with Europe New and Arabs are just two oppressing races fighting fighting because their histories have taught them that neurotic caution More uotes Is it really possible for us all without exception to love all of us without exception all of the time Did Jesus himself love everyone all of the time Did he for example love the moneychangers at the gates of the Temple when in a fit of rage he violently overturned their tables Or when he proclaimed I came not to send peace on earth but a sword did he forget at that moment his own exhortation to general love and his commandment to turn the other cheek Or when he urged his apostles to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves And especially when he said according to Luke But those mine enemies which would not that I should reign over them which would not that I should reign over them bring hither and slay them before meHave you ever thought my young friend how right the English were when they invented the excellent phrase to fall in love The real tragedy of humankind Shealtiel used to say is not that the persecuted and enslaved crave to be liberated and to hold their heads high No The worst thing is that the enslaved secretly dream of enslaving their enslavers The persecuted yearn to be persecutors The slaves dream of being masters

«Amos Oz narra en Judas las grandes preguntas y conflictos de la historia y de la religión en Oriente Próximo»Judas el regreso de Amos Oz a la novela género ue no había frecuentado desde Una historia

joven Shmu. 35 stars This is my first book by this prolific author who I have known about for many years but never took the opportunity to read until now The book is complex in some ways and I found multiple levels here political religious and for me mostly the emotional level In looking at some biographical material it appears that Oz is not only prolific but political and not without his critics in standing for a two state solution to the Israeli and Palestinian conflict The intellectual religious aspect of the book is depicted as the main character a young man has just abandoned his research on the Jewish view of Jesus Conseuently there are parts of the book that discuss his view of whether Judas was a traitor or whether by betraying Jesus there would have been no Christianity The politicalreligious aspect was covered in the story of one of the character s father and whether he was a traitor in favoring a two state solution So is it about the uestion of whether a traitor is really a traitor about loyalty All of this in all honesty is just a bit too heady for me However there are things that drew me into the book It did not feel like a translation in any way There are wonderful descriptions and lovely writing in general and I found the three main characters appealing wanting to know about them and how they would end up Shmuel Ash 25 has lost the financial help he received from his parents after their bankruptcy He has lost his girlfriend who married her former boyfriend and lost his enthusiasm for his research and in some ways it seems he s lost himself He takes a job as a care giver to an disabled man and his main responsibility is to keep the man company and converse with him in the evening Gershom Wald too suffers a loss his son in 1948 in the Arab Israeli war While Ash is trying to escape what life has dealt him to be away from it all he finds a lonely life until he is attracted to Atalia Abravanel widow of Wald s son 20 years his senior There as I mentioned above a lot going on here on an introspective intellectual level but for me the meaning of the story was about loss and loneliness and the connections that Shmuel makes with Atalia and Gershom There are several reviews in major publications that will give a in depth analysis on what Oz was perhaps trying to do here and for anyone interested I suggest you look for those From my perspective I m glad I read this for the writing and the poignant moments of connections between the characters I received an ARC of this book from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt through Edelweiss A Daddy
