Tanya Reinhart gone

I’ve just received a forwarded email originally from the Linguistics Department at Tel Aviv University saying that Tanya Reinhart had died suddenly in New York yesterday, without providing any further details.

Reinhart was the author of the 2002 Israel/Palestine: how to end the war of 1948 and last year, The roadmap to nowhere: Israel/Palestine since 2003, which I am just about to finish. She has also written many courageous articles in the Israeli press.

She was one of few Israeli academics who supported the academic boycott.

A sad sad loss.


  1. She apparently died of a stroke. A tragic loss. She was a powerful and principled voice for justice.

  2. May she rest in Hell.

  3. They shall know we are Christians by our love.

  4. This is very sad news indeed.
