    I'm politically left, think it is mandatory to learn "the other side" and appreciate very much the work of late Prof. Dan Bar-On whom I had the chance to meet personally. Nevertheless Prof. Golbert has a point here. The situation is not unlike the creationism.debate in the US. There too is an attempt to intrude non scientific views into science.classes, biology in that case. Conclusion: the book should be taught but not under label "history". The proper subject will have to be found.
