Israel Shamir

Israel Shamir (Russian: Исраэль Шамир; born 1947),[1] is also known by the names Jöran Jermas[2][3] and Adam Ermash. He is a Jewish dissident born in Russia and now living in Sweden. He is a writer and journalist.[4][5][6][7] He is a commentator on ArabIsraeli relations and Jewish culture.[8] Originally from Novosibirsk, Siberia, Shamir moved to Israel in 1969.[9][10][11] He says that he served in the 1973 war, after which he took up journalism and writing.

Shamir writes about Israel, Palestine, and the Jewish people, and has published or self-published a number of books that have been translated into several languages; the French edition of Flowers of Galilee (2004) was banned for a time in France over allegations of antisemitism. Shamir has been accused of antisemitism and Holocaust denial,[12][13] charges he has rejected.
