In this chapter, the author reflects on the time he spent with Alain Badiou in Haifa. Badiou came to Haifa with his son Oliver, whom he adopted with his ex-wife Cecile. When they arrived in Haifa, Oliver, an eighteen-year-old African French-speaking young man, asked to see the house his mother had visited every summer when she was a girl. He wept upon learning that his mother's grandfather had died. The author, an Israeli among Jewish refugees, gazed at Badiou looking at his mourning son. In the rest of this chapter, he describes the chaotic situation in Tel Aviv amidst the war between Israel and Palestine.
