Mmmm hmmm. Like I’ve always said.
My favourite paragraph is this one:
In other words, Bartal, like some other critics, is not so much disputing Sand’s historical claims about the Diaspora or the origins of Eastern European Jews, as he is contesting Sand’s notion that Zionists concocted a false history for a cynical political purpose.
So, apparently the only thing critics are disputing is the fact that Zionists lied. Mmmm hmmm.
