Philosophers For Hamas!
By Gabriel Noah Brahm
Gianni Vattimo is Italy’s most famous philosopher and a former MEP. This week he announced that he wants to personally kill ‘Zionist bastards’ and thinks Europeans should raise money ‘to buy Hamas some more rockets.’ Fathom contributor Gabriel Brahm asks what it all means in this sharp counterblast. Back in June, Brahm wrote an acclaimed review for Fathom of a new collection of essays edited by Vattimo, Deconstructing Zionism.
