Reviews of : The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand PDF Book
Inside this Book – The Invention of the Jewish People” is one of the most original, honest and historically accurate books I’ve read to date. Professor Sand’s expels the myth of the Jewish “people” and the myth of the “exile” of these people from the land of “Israel”. The Jews were never expelled in large numbers from Palestine as it was called even then; there is simply no historical evidence to back this claim up. The evidence shows that the vast majority of Jews living in Palestine simply converted to Christianity and then later to Islam and that they still live there today and are identified as Palestinians. He also shows how Judaism was spread by the Himyaritic of Yemen to gentiles from the Berbers in northwest Africa and the Khazar who lived in what is now southern Russia.
Inside this book –The Invention of the Jewish People PDF Book by Shlomo Sand – I have written reviews of many books here. If there is one above all the rest that I would like others to read it would be this one. Regardless of the country you call home, it rests on a foundation of myths, stories of the distant past that unite the citizenry. Israel is no exception, yet the story of the historical Jews is one that more people in the United States are familiar with that that of any other people. Shlomo Sand begins his book discussing definitions – what are a people? What is a nation? With his terms defined, he looks at the story of the Jews and how it relates to what has been discovered (or not) by archeology, philology (language study) and archival research. He takes us from the founding myth of the Jews as a tribe descended from Abraham, in captivity in Egypt, escaping in the Exodus, wandering in the desert for 40 years, defeating the Canaanites, living under kings David and Solomon, exiled to Babylon, returning to Judea, expelled by the Romans and continuing on to the present in Israel.
