TEL AVIV – Professor Shlomo Sand, a historian from Tel Aviv University, asserted that the concept of the Jewish people was invented in the late 19th century, and that without the catastrophe caused by the Nazis, the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 would not have occurred, RT reported.اضافة اعلان

Like most other nations worldwide, their existence is a myth or legend.

He argued that modern nations emerged with the advent of printing, democracy, schools, and the building of states by nations. He expressed doubt regarding the Jewish people's existence today.

Shlomo Sand revealed that the notion of the Jewish people was created in the late 19th century, suggesting it is a myth. He further stated, "The Jews were never expelled from the ancient Palestinian land. There is no research study on this subject."

Professor Sand argued that the majority of Jews who were not religious had no reason to go to Palestine. Many desired to immigrate to the United States. Jewish migration to Palestine was minimal before the Holocaust. It was only after World War II, and the catastrophe brought about by the Nazis, that a massive influx of Jewish immigrants arrived in Palestine, making the establishment of Israel in 1948 possible.

Furthermore, he advocated for coexistence between Palestinians and Israelis, stating that there is no other opportunity for both peoples to live together in the Middle East. Professor Sand suggested that the best solution today would be for more Palestinians to become Israeli citizens, granting them all the legal and civil rights, emphasizing the need for both nations to coexist in the region.
