    "Fellow academics have called his research methodologically flawed to the point of being "an insult to intelligence." Not a single historian has come to his defense." - Haaretz Nothing would please many scholars more than tearing a fellow scholar's work to pieces. So far we haven't seen that, although we did hear a fair amount of name calling. The simple reason may be that the academic world did not have a chance to look at the evidence. The book was written in Italian, not the most common language, and very few copies (3000? Previously they said 1500) have been sold. The way it works in Academia is that you go over the evidence, form an opinion, and then write a paper with specific comments, submit it to a scholarly Journal, and wait for the publication. Once the paper is written, you can also circulate it among colleagues. Time has been too short yet. It seems this is the reason for the lack of defense and lack of attack by historians. In view of Toaff's recent chickening out, it may be very difficult to support his original thesis.
