Following an interview earlier this year, Khalil Bendib once again speaks with Tel Aviv University historian Dr. Shlomo Sand about his brand-new book, The Invention of the Jewish People. The book has become a best seller both in Israel and in France: Did the world’s Jewry truly originate in Palestine, and if not, why does that myth persist to this day?
Sand is currently touring the US: see also an interesting review of Shlomo Sand’s recent NYU lecture by Philip Weiss here.
In the same audio clip, Voices of the Middle East and North Africa also presents “In Honor of a Hero,” Bay Area-based Algerian Berber singer/songwriter Moh Alileche’s newest CD, which came out two months ago.
