Israel Adam Shamir is a writer mainly on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, but also on other (Jewish) issues more generally. His background is disputed.
According to Shamir, he is of Jewish ancestry and was born in Novosibirsk in Siberia in 1947. He became a Swedish citizen in 1992. Shamir converted to the Greek Orthodox Church in 2003. He has been accused of being a "Holocaust denier", which he has rejected. Shamir supports a one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.
