This book recounts the adventures of Tuvia Tenenbom, who wanders around Israel of our time calling himself "Tobi the German". In the course of numerous interviews Tuvia extracts information, sentiments, hidden theories and delusional visions motivating the miscellany of peoples forming the present-day Holy Land. Does Palestinian wife number one hate the Jews more than she hates wife number two? Who does a young German tourist hate more, her dead Nazi grandpa or the just-born Jewish baby? Who finances cash-rich NGOs pursuing a Judenrein Israel? Who sets Palestinian olive groves on fire and why? What do you see from a Piper Cherokee above a Bedu camp? Who are the flaming feminists who sacrifice their lives for the rights of polygamists? Whose land is this, anyway? In the course of his seven-months journey Tobi the German discovers Syrian flags growing inside apples, she-asses who used to be men, five-star refugee camps, flying prophets, cash-loving guardians of the poor, masturbating monks in eternal love of Palestinians, human rights activists in eternal hatred of Jews, cash-rich rabbis without congregations, families growing in cemeteries -- among many others. Catch the Jew!, the most humorous composition on the Middle East to date, is a polyglot spin around a cultural miscegenation in a very small space. However, it is never-daunted author finds that with labneh, strudel, olive oil, apple pie, kebab, rugelach, hummus and schnitzel, a happy tummy can bear us through even the most appalling matters. Except the conclusion.

Reviews

Bluntly satiricalirresistibly fascinatingseductive and engaging. New York Times Hugely entertaining,terribly funny, sarcastic, engaging, powerful, accusatory, judgmental, good! National Review A literary sensation. Haaretz Catch the Jew! is an illuminatingand alarmingaccount of a part of the promised land that few foreigners see offers one of the more interesting portraits of Palestinian politics to have appeared in English the current Palestinian leadership appears fairly shrewd (though apparently not shrewd enough to perform background checks on visitors), nepotistic, obsessed with theatrical PR productions of alleged Israeli crimes, but also surprisingly satisfied with the status quo That said, no reader of Catch the Jew! can come away having failed to learn many new things about Israelis and Palestinians, two peoples we talk about so much but understand so little. Wall Street Journal April 2015 Catch The Jew!, a daring and hilariously written account of the foreign-backed (and often foreign-staffed) media and peace industry in Israel. Each of the 55 short chapters is a portal to an aspect of Israeli and Arab life and some offense dreamed up by the peace industry. He observes how Israels left-wing intellectuals profess to be experts on the settlers they despise and the Palestinians they adore while showing negligible real knowledge about either. He shows how the Oslo Accords did significant damage to JewishArab relations on a local level. Of particular interest to Tenenbom is the European connection. The extent to which so many anti-Israel NGOs (foreign and domestic); hostile films, cultural events, and institutions; and Arab housing, educational facilities, and academic conferences are all funded by European governments is staggering.
