A professional interpreter of Hebrew just wrote me of your book. In the next edition please consider mentioning that Mesopotamian and Egyptian literature don’t reveal a “Hebrew” people.
I have an opinion of the motive for the invention and hope you are interested Thanks, js

Dr Sand’s arguments are supported by Genetics:

“Jews were found to be more closely related to groups in the north of the Fertile Crescent (Kurds, Turks, and Armenians) than to their Arab neighbors.”

According to Wikipedia, Sand’s new after word accuses geneticists of pandering to 19th century racist ideology. This is a ridiculous accusation since Sand book is an attempt to discredit the Jewish national project through a denial Jewish pedigree and an affirmation of Palestinian pedigree. SAND is the one making the connection between genetics and political rights. Do we, the Jewish people not have the right to respond with EVIDENCE? The capacity for intellectual dishonesty and rhetorical slight of hand among anti-Zionists is BOUNDLESS.

What wrote SAND is a foul insult to the real History. It’s a shame and he found the best way to sell his trash!!!!

I admire Prof. Sand for his courage in writing this book and appreciate the information supporting his facts.

Once mentioned but never again

King Merneptah Stele – 1208 BC

The only time Israel was mentioned in the ancient Egyptian texts, the most meticulous and coherent of the world’s ancient civilizations and which covered the chronicles of nearly 3000 years, was in Merneptah Stele, a black granite slab engraved with a description of the victories of king Merneptah- son of the great Ramses II- in a military campaign against the Meshwesh Libyans and their Sea People allies, but its final two lines, line 26 & 27, refer to a prior military campaign in Canaan in the Near East.

The stele which dates to about 1208 BC was discovered by renowned British archaeologist Flinders Petrie at Thebes in 1896.

The Inscription contains a hymn and a list of the Pharaoh’s military victories. A tribe, whom Merenptah had victoriously smitten””Or as Petrie quickly suggested that it read: “Israel!” is on the list of conquests. The mention of Israel is very short; it simply says, “Israel is laid waste, its seed is no more.”

Yehuda August 13, 2012 at 11:53 am

Richard NYC and Oeil VIF, A Jew is one from the tribe of Yehuda which is one of the 12 tribes. When the Kingdom was divided into South and Northern Kingdoms, the Northern Kingdom moved from Babylonia to the New land ( the so called North American Indians and South America)
Well, This is a well know fact by learned truth-seekers and scholars that the real Jews are the so called Negros in North America, South America, Jamaica, west indies and Haiti and certainly the people in sub-Saharan Africa today who still maintain the original ancient Hebrew language, cultures and rituals etc. The guys in Israel today are 95% what you call Ashkenazi Jews from eastern Europe. So if that’s the truth, what happened to the real Hebrew people? There are two Exoduses in the bible: The first is when we came out of Africa after becoming a nation in African and The Most High God bringing us out with a Might hand from Egyptian slavery, and the second was exit back into Africa after breaking the covenant and worshiping idols and pagan gods. In the book of Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel and many other prophets, it is documented how we fled back into Egypt (Africa) fleeing from Asyro-Babylonian invasion in 586 BC. In the ancient times, Israelites moved back and forth into Africa (Egypt) to Mount Zion through the Suez Canal. In fact Christ who was taken into Africa to be hidden from Herod (an Idumean or European leader of Judea) amongst back Egyptians, also told us to flee into Africa as we have always done historically-Luke Chapter 21 vs 20-24 when we see the Roman armies coming. This was fulfilled in 70 A.D. Flavious Josephus, a real black Jew whose was imprisoned by Romans Empire recorded that over 1million Jew fled into Africa fleeing from Roman prosecution and slavery and the whole slave market was full of black Jew slaves-Please see “The Complete Works of Josephus”. This was our last stand in Jerusalem and the land has been controlled by Gentile nations ever since as the bible predicted. We stayed in Africa for over 1000 year from 70 A.D before Arab Slave trade and subsequently the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade which stared in the 1300s. A key part of the Covenant that we signed with the Most High God coming out of Africa or Egyptian slavery on Mount Sinai is that we will be going back into slavery into but this time on Cargo Slave Ships-please see Deuteronomy Chapter 28 vs 15 to 68. In vs 68 it tell you about the Slave ships and the word “Egypt” means Bondage or slavery. We have our history clearly documented in the bible and in conventional history book; although it has been largely suppressed by the global elites coupled with the blindness that the Most High put on our people-Romans Chapter 11 vs 7 – 10 and 25-26.
The Torah said that when the true people of God are in the land, the world will lay down with the lamb and the world will not learn war any more-see Isaiah Chapter 2 and Chapter 11. The real Jew are still scattered on the four Conner’s of the earth until the second coming when Christ will gather us including the remnants of ten tribes( i.e Mexican, Porto Rican, Hawaiian, North American Indians, Cubans, so called Latinos etc). The worship of Talmud is pagan worship. One more thing; there can never be peace in the Middle East because the people there are Ishmaelites and Idumeans, not God’s chosen people.

Shlomo Sand’s book has nothing to do with us as Jews. It’s is to help the/our objectives for which is Israel’s public relations department. We are fighting against the accusation that Judaism is a race and that Israel is Apartheid. His work is to open the eyes of gentiles to this aspect of us Jews or the Israeli.

Again, we are not his audience: since the Siddur has the word “Thy people”, addressing G-d, appears on every single page of our prayerbook three times, on average. So, for this audience, he is not to be taken at face value. It’s nothing to argue about because it’s moot. Like someone writing a book that tries to explain why oranges are really purple. It is silly of any of us to even debate him for this very same reason. It’s not debatable. It’s just plain silly.

All I can say is, Shlomo Sand, Thomas L. Thompson, Peter Lemche, and many other “real” humanist, who care about their fellow human beings are the ones who should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, for they work tirelessly to tell the people the Truth and? not misguide them under the name of Nationalism or Theology. Real Heroes that you don’t see the likes of everyday. Heroes like these are what make nations great and proud not the type of hypocrite and money hungry liars who run the world today

I love your book and the great work you are doing. Your opponents are attacking you because they are scared of the truth as it goes against their ulterior aims. Please ignore them.

You are right.

All the objective research supports you and now Genetics will support you.

For eg, a new study from Yale supports you also. Here is the link:

It says: “Our findings support the Khazarian Hypothesis and portray the European Jewish genome as a mosaic of Caucasus, European, and Semitic ancestries, thereby consolidating previous contradictory reports of Jewish ancestry.”

Thank you. You are a great man!! June 7, 2013 at 10:30 am

Re: the Merneptah Stele (aka Israel Stele) is fraudulently misread and interpreted. It does not point to a biblical ‘Israel’ (“whose seed is no more”). There is no historical evidence outside of ‘The Book’ for the existence of any people or nation called Israel. I do know there are other archeological attempts to legitimise an historical ‘Israel’, but they all fall short. Here’s and article on the Israel Stele so-called:

had a good laugh .. perhaps you made and are making money from your book … yes many of the Palestinians are Jews and as your book describes more than one Jew is an ordinary person who became Jewish because at that time it was an economic opportunity … and You ? who were your ancestors … mine were the ones who came from Ur and Haran and are alive today … we of course have the DNA to support this and the genetic challenges that go with that .. and you ? Would love to meet you sometime .. for sure you will show up eventually at some meeting or conference .. be well
