Many years ago, Stalin had formulated a set of rigid rules for a people to qualify as a nation, such as common language, etc. By stalin's definition, the Jews are not a nation, which repeats Sand's theory. Both of them ignore the simple obvious fact that a person is Jewish if he truly feels like Jewish, regardless of "scientific" definitions. See a recent book by A. Barr.
