The Invention of the Jewish People is a study of the historiography of the Jewish people by Shlomo Sand, Professor of History at Tel Aviv University. It has generated a heated controversy. The book was in the best-seller list in Israel for nineteen weeks. An English translation of the book was published by Verso Books in October 2009. The book has also been translated into German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, French and Russian, and as of late 2009 further translations were underway

He believes that by sharing his experiences, he will help others realise and rediscover the preciousness and uniqueness of Judaism.

Sand's book is not a pure work of history. In fact, it has a clearly stated political agenda. Disagreements aside, I think that Shlomo Sand's questions about how Israel's democracy can be liberalized and stabilized are thought-provoking and deserve serious discussion. From all the sound and the fury you might think that his agenda is to expel all Jews from Israel, or to abolish the Jewish state. It might come as a surprise to some who have not read the book that Sand's goal is to preserve Israel as a democracy with a Jewish character based on a Jewish majority. But most of all, the book's success in Israel (it was on the bestseller list for nineteen weeks) is a success for Israel.

Translated by Yael Lotan. This book is a work of history. The socialist vision filled his imagi-nation and strengthened his spirit, prompting him to read and think in spite of the demanding work he did for a living. VERSO London, New York. Nonetheless, it will open with a number of personal stories that, like all biographical writing, required a liberal amount of imagination to give them life. The party became a haven.

The book by Shlomo Sand, which mixes respected scholarship with dubious theories, spent . The same could be said of all nations and religions.

Mixing respected scholarship with dubious theories, the author, Shlomo Sand, a professor at Tel Aviv University, frames the narrative as a startling exposure of suppressed historical facts.

Ernest Renan was one of the intellectual giants of the second half of the nineteenth century in France, the man who first opened up the study of nationalism. In this book, Shlomo Sand, the author of the best-selling The Invention of the Jewish People, demonstrates the complexity of Renan’s thought. Sand shows the relationship of Renan’s work to that of key twentieth-century thinkers on nationalism, such as Raymond Aron and Ernest Gellner, and argues for the continued importance of studying Renan.Alongside his essay, Sand presents two classic lectures by Renan: the first, the renowned “What Is a Nation?”, argues that nations are not based upon race, religion, and language; in the second he uses historical evidence to show that the Jews cannot be considered a “pure ethnos.” On the Nation and the Jewish People is an important contribution to the understanding of nationalism, bringing back into play the work of a profoundly misunderstood thinker.

Professor Shlomo Sand's exposure and thorough debunking of the false mythology of the European Zionist colonization movement is definitely groundbreaking work and makes wonderful reading. See the recent work of Johns Hopkins University geneticist Dr. Eran Elhaik who confirmed the total veracity and correctness of Sand's historical thesis via genetics on the Khazar Jews.

This book is a reprint of a classic on nationalism by Ernest Renan. There is also an essay by Shlomo Sand, an Israeli professor whose previous book, The Invention of the Jewish People, was so popular in Israel that it stayed on the bestseller list for 19 consecutive months!! Both are worth reading and I would recommend them to amazon customers interested in history and political ideology as well as the gentleman who gave this book 1 star without reading it (opting to review another book by the author for an undisclosed reason). This book's rating score deserves to be balanced by someone who has actually read the relevant title.

Islamist fascism has a problem. It is that traditional Islam, and the Koran in particular, explicitly acknowledge that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people. The war of Islamofascism against Israel and its population thus directly contradicts the teachings about Jews and Israel found in the Koran itself. The Islamofascists, however, have found a solution to this dilemma. The present Jews are not Jews. And they are being provided with this "solution" by a notorious Jewish anti-Semite.
The Koran itself is extraordinarily clear about the status of the Land of Israel in Islam. While in general criticizing Jews for their supposed sinfulness, something the Jewish Bible does quite a lot of the same, the Koran relates in Sura 5:21, that Moses (a revered teacher in Islam) tells the Jews to "enter into the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you." Moses adds to his people, according the Koran:
"O my people! Remember the bounty of God upon you when He bestowed prophets upon you, and made you kings and gave you that which had not been given to anyone before you amongst the nations. O my people! Enter the Holy Land which God has written for you, and do not turn tail, otherwise you will be losers."
Elsewhere (Sura 17, 104) the Koran proclaims: "And thereafter We [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: `Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd.'" The founder of modern Zionism, Theodore Herzl, could not have said it better.
The legitimacy of Jewish claims to the Land of Israel is repeated in Sura 10:93-94:
"We settled the Children of Israel in a beautiful dwelling-place (Israel)...If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee."
The Koran also explicitly documents the existence of the Jewish Temples on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Sura 17:7 records the destruction of the First Jewish Temple by Babylon and the Second Temple by Rome, and Mohammed never contests the Bible's claim that the Temples were in Jerusalem. Indeed, the return of the Jews to their homeland after centuries of exile can be seen as the fulfillment of Islamic prophecy. Sura 17:104 of the Koran says: "And we said to the Children of Israel afterwards, `Go live into this land (Israel). When the final prophecy comes to pass, we will summon you all in one group.'"
As noted by Prof. Khaleel Mohammed, from the Department of Religious Studies at San Diego State University, the medieval exegetes of the Koran - roughly analogous to the Talmud for Judaism - recognize Israel as belonging to the Jews, as their birthright given to them by God. Two of Islam's most famous exegetes explained thus: `Ibn Kathir said: "That which God has written for you, i.e. that which God has promised to you by the words of your father Israel that it is the inheritance of those among you who believe." Muhammad al-Shawkani interprets Kataba to mean "that which God has allotted and predestined for you in His primordial knowledge, deeming it as a place of residence for you."'
From the above, one would think that Islamofascism faces a theological quandary in its attempts at conscripting Islam for a genocidal jihad against Israel and the Jews. But Islamofacsists have invented a solution. They can jihad all they want against Israel and the Jews, Islamic theology notwithstanding, because they claim that the Jews ... are not the Jews. If modern Jews are really not Jews at all, then Israel is not a country of Jews, and so Israelis have no rights to sovereignty in their own homeland as promised in the Koran.
So just why are modern Jews not Jews, in the pseudo-theology of the jihadis? Because the Islamofascists are recycling the old mythology about European Jews or "Ashkenazim" being nothing more than converted Khazars. And the new guru of the "Jews-Not-Being-Jews" hoax is none other than Tel Aviv University history professor Shlomo Sand.
To explain this mind-numbing development, let's take a few steps back. Yes, there was indeed a Kingdom of Turkic peoples living north of the Black Sea in the Dark Ages called the Khazars, and - yes - its ruling family and part of its population did convert to Judaism. The Khazar kingdom was largely destroyed by the expanding Russian kingdom in the tenth century, and anything remaining was destroyed in the Mongol invasions. What actually became of the Jewish Khazars is unknown. Some may have integrated themselves into other Jewish communities in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Eastern Europe.
Later a myth was created about the Khazars being an important component of European Jewry. This myth was to a large extent the invention of the 1976 book, The Thirteenth Tribe by Arthur Koestler, a writer better known for his lifelong battles against totalitarianism in all its forms. Koestler wrote his book largely in order to create interest and sympathy for Jews and Israel, believing the Khazar story would serve as a basis for respect and fascination with Jewish history. In reality, there is very little evidence of any type, from genetic markers to family and place names, that there is any significant Khazar "blood" among Western or Ashkenazi Jews.
Meanwhile, Koestler's public relations ploy backfired. In recent years, the Khazar myth has been hijacked by Neo-Nazis and Islamofascists to invent a racialist argument against Jews being entitled to self-determination, independence, or a homeland in the Land of Israel. If Jews are nothing more than converted Khazars, or so goes the argument of the anti-Semitic racialists, then they are foreign interlopers in the Levant and have no right to statehood there.
Now, as a matter of fact, even if the Khazar myth were true, and Ashkenazi Jews were descendent from converted Khazars (and - we repeat - the myth is NOT true!), it still would not make the slightest difference. Jews never defined themselves in genetic or racial terms. They always saw themselves as an ethnic group marked off by religion, tradition, and language. Converts are just as Jewish as are those born to a Jewish mother and just as entitled to participate in Jewish self-determination. And, to top it all off, most Israeli Jews are not even Ashkenazi Jews. Many come from Arab/Muslim countries and share DNA material with Ashkenazi Jews such as G-6-PD deficiency and certain Jewish maladies.
Meanwhile, the popularity of the Khazar myth among anti-Semites represents a return of modern anti-Jewish bigotry to the racialism of the 1930's Nazi and earlier. Nearly every anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi website denounces Zionists and Israelis as "Khazars." Web chat lists in which Jews defending Israel are dismissed as "Khazar usurpers" are too numerous to count.
The racialism once again in vogue holds that Jews would only have legitimate claims to the right of self-determination in their homeland if they were appropriately Semitic from a racial point of view. Palestine is part of the Semitic racial lebensraum and those who do not possess the correct pure racial markings have no business being there. Arab racial purity is suddenly the new basis for national rights.
If we take the racialist argument to its illogical conclusions, Palestinian Arabs have the right to exercise all claims to sovereignty in Israel due to their being true racial Jews, while Zionists are non-Jewish Khazars - racial imposters and usurpers. But to make things even sillier, Arabs themselves are, of course, a mix of racial strains, with a particularly large Caucasian component thanks to Arab intermixing with Spanish and Italian Europeans, Caucasian Berbers, Vandals, Goths, and even some Vikings.
Lest the world dismiss "Khazar Zionist" nonsense as something as pathetic as the conspiracist "911-Truth" form of mental illness, along comes an anti-Semitic pseudo-academic from Tel Aviv University itself to lead the racialist charge against the Israeli "Khazars" and against Jewish self-determination. Professor Shlomo Sand is a hard-core Stalinist and Jewish anti-Semite. He was active for a while in the 1960s and 1970s in a tiny Israeli Maoist splinter named Matzpen. From its ranks emerged an espionage ring of Israeli Jewish and Arab communists, who trained as terrorists in Syria and were jailed by Israel in the 1970s. Writing mainly in French, Sand has built much of his "academic" career on churning out Marxist boilerplate diatribes. He is a fanatic anti-Zionist and makes no attempt to hide his desire to see his own country obliterated.
Sand last year recruited himself to the aid of the Islamists seeking to annihilate Israel. So the Koran says the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews? In that case, Sand himself, a professor at Tel Aviv University, will recycle Neo-Nazi mythology about Israeli Jews being converted Khazar interlopers. The result was Sand's book, The Invention of the Jewish People, a pseudo-history published in English by Verso Books, a publishing house set up by "New Left Review," specializing in communist and Bash-Israel "books."
Sand's book about Jews being a fraudulent "invention" is amazingly un-original. If submitted as a student paper I suspect it would be rejected as plagiarism of the contents of anti-Jewish web sites. Sand's book has been hailed as ground-breaking scholarship by Neo-Nazis, jihadists, terrorist web sites, anti-Semites and communists of all stripes. Serious historians have dismissed it as pseudo-academic poppycock, as fraud, and as little more than a comic book recycling of Neo-Nazi myths about Jews being Khazars. Sand's conclusions from the imaginary "evidence" about the Khazar roots of Israelis resemble those of his jihadi groupies, namely, that Israel has no right to exist and that Jews are not Jews at all, certainly not any sort of a people. Tel Aviv University has won for itself the dubious honor of serving as home base for arguably the world's worst "academic" anti-Semite, and has raised questions all over the globe about the academic standards it has obviously abandoned.
Meanwhile, we have grown accustomed in our 21st century to the bizarre collaboration between Islamist fundamentalists and far-leftists. Even so, one cannot help marveling at the spectacle of an Israeli Stalinist professor devoting himself so passionately to proliferate the myths required by Islamofascist fundamentalists, and by so doing grant them the means for ignoring the Koran itself.
By Prof. Steven Plaut- Haifa university, Israel DRIHEART: Sand ignores Jewish history: Psalm 137 is the first Zionist expression. Jewish prayers for 2000 years called for "next year in Jerusalem, Jewish holidays all but two are nationalistic (ie Hanukkah, Purim, Passover), Hebrew language that unlike Latin is spoken today in Israel, and profound historical evidence. Sulieman the Magnificant 1540 captured Jerusalem from the crusaders with Jewish help and were granted access to Jerusalem denied by the Crusaders. There was continuous presence of Jews in the Holy Land and as expected some local Palestinians DNA which about 10% share with European Jews. Suggest to read the book of Jacob Barnai- The Jews in Palestine in the eighteenth Century. He researched the archives of the Ottoman Empire and gave a detailed, well referrenced account. And many more. But there is also the Balfour declaration, San Remo conference and specifically the League of Nations in 1926 where 55 nations declared that the Mandate of Palestine is designated to be the homeland of the Jewish people. Nobody, even not the Nazis, had any doubt who the Jews are. Lastly, suppose that Jews are not Jews than Americans are not Americans, Canadians are not Candians etc. Sand than denied the right of the "Jews" to organize and create a state and by inference he denies the right of America to be America. The "Jewish colonialists" at least had a theory that got them to the Holy Land, they even bought land. What theory has America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand? Sand is de legitimizing not only Israel but also the USA. This is the reason that Sand's fabrications should not be ignored but strongly condemned.
