Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg delivers a damning verdict on Shlomo Sand’s controversial book “The Invention of the Jewish People” in a Guardian review.
He writes: “Its sweeping attempt to take apart the entire history of the Jewish people from its origins to present-day Israel and prove it to be a wilful fabrication is marred by tendentious premises, the misreading of key events and the ignoring of central texts and insitutions.”

The book stinks. To hear him feted in November on R4 "Start the Week", at Borders, SOAS and the Frontline Club was disgusting.

During his week in the UK to promote the "book" only Stephen Sackur (BBC TV Hardtalk) gave this treacherous idiotic apology for an academic the kicking he deserves.

Hoffman, have you not noticed the difference between the elegant and scholarly way Rabbi Wittenberg demolished the book and your ad hominem attack (even resorting to poking fun at his name)?
