It is true, too, that Selijuks and Khwarezmids and Ayyubids, invaders from elsewhere in the Middle East, each took a turn ruling over the city during the Middle Ages. This is also real history. Historical, but not historic. For Kimmelman, though, the opposite is true. A critic is entitled to his preferences.

But consider how his opening paragraph erases Jews from the archaeological history of the Old City:. The Hurva foreground and Tiferet Israel synagogues. From someone who purports to care deeply about architectural and demographic preservation, this assertion is striking. The destruction of the Hurva synagogue was hardly an act of preservation.

In a city long defined by low-rise, stone-clad buildings, Israeli authorities are now approving story glass towers and cut-and-paste office park development more in keeping with Singapore or Jakarta than Jerusalem.

Moreover, why does listing that I am a New York Times best-selling author render me a hypocrite?

Other organizations rely on book sales from different reporting stores and reporting periods. Only the New York Times best-seller list is right. I am sure most of its readers believe that. And so long as the Times refuses to open up about how it arrives at its unique numbers, no one should believe it. More articles. Previous articles.
I pointed out that The Rational Bible: Exodus , the first volume of my commentary on the first five books of the Bible the Torah , did not appear on the New York Times best-seller list even though it was: — No. Most Popular.
