The so-called ruining of somebody's theory is accomplished here only by most illiterate flattening of one of the best XX c. historian theorists into few thesis that only array neatly in the worldview where people are either anti-Semites or philo-Semites. Dear ignoramuses, with your complaints please address mr Sheleg who concocts "T. for Idiots" essays rather than mr Toynbee, who among the things he wrote was the least preoccupied with the Jews, to begin with and had quite different opinion than his Jewish interlocutors of the outcome of discussions. Nobody was upset with nearly every Jewish and Zionist public figure of 19th c. starting with Hess ending Herzl calling Judaism and Jewish people "fossils" and that the State of Israel was a result of the same Hegelian extended family of philosophies of history to which belonged Toynbee. A propos, have anyone heard of Toynbee's far more important discussions with Japanese philosopher Ikeda? No?It's marginal because not anti-Semitic?
