In this chapter, the author responds to Israeli author Dorit Rabinian, who wrote a moving letter to her friend Hassan Hourani following the latter's death. Rabinian's letter came in the wake of Hourani's drowning in the sea of Jaffa, and was published by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Rabinian sent her letter to the author; the two differed with regards to their experience of Hourani's death on both the personal and political level. In his letter, the author talks about the love he feels for Hourani and the anger that overcame him over his death. He also highlights the politics of the letter as well as the politics in the letter. In particular, he addresses the binationalism that Hourani talked about as a solution to Israel's conflict with Palestine.
