    Jennifer if you HAD read the book you would not have written your silly post. "that he offers no scientific or historical basis for his arguments" Because Sand's book is copiously full of footnotes detailing a long tradition of argument and evidence which supports his thesis. Or this, "not to mention that science has proven him wrong". You shouldn't have mentioned it because science has proven nothing of the sort. When clearly there is no such thing as a gene that will identify a Jew, nor have the various genetic studies proven much beyond their own unreliability. All the major studies thus far have been subject to much revision [one major study revealed a large amount of M.Eastern origin males have taken on ?non? M Eastern females] and debate and have asked more questions than provided answers. I don't imagine you are aware of the study of 'Levi' which suggests some one time 'mass' conversion to Levi Jews!? "I could also write a book about how humans evolved from unicorns and like sand`s book" However, unlike a book about unicorns, Sands thesis was the accepted thesis for centuries, only being disputed in Jewish circles after the rise of 19thC Zionism. In fact before the formation of modern day Israel, his claims would have met with little surprise and much agreement. Jennifer,read the book. No it seems to me you have not read it at all. However I would happily discuss some of its finer points with you if you can indeed find your copy which I dare say you have mislaid?
