A jew can be secular and can still believe that the TANAKH, THE TALMUD AND MANY OTHER BOOKS written in hebrew, in Ladino, in Yidish are CULTURAL TREASURES which must be CHERISHED STUDIED AND PRESERVED.It is indeed a singular history which connects those who recognize themselves as jews. If SAND does not want to recognize himself as AN israeli jew it is his personal problem. The inference from his analyses that The Jews do not exist as a specific human group is just completely at the borders of psychiatry . He obviously does not read the Journals NATURE, SCIENCE, PNAS, AJHG about tthe high rate of endogamy among jews based on religious or cultural grounds; one can recognize that palestinians have legitimate rights to feel they have been suffering after the creation of Israel.....The syrians, the egyptians, the Tunisians may have also know the same feeling without Israel or Jews beeing a parameter too consider. trhe Kabyls have the same feelings as Palestinians In Algeria.....Sand should try to explain to Kabyls that they do not constitute a nation......
