The last book of the trilogy (firstly, "The invention of the Jewish people" secondly "The invention of the Land of Israel"), in which Professor Shlomo Sand, a professor of history at Tel Aviv University, reveals a large group of fabricated Zionist mythologies.
In the second volume of his trilogy, (the first “The invention of the Jewish people”, and the third “How I stopped being a Jew”) Professor Shlomo Sand, a history professor at Tel Aviv University, debunks a large group of fabricated Zionist mythologies.
This book presents a critical study of one aspect of the ‘Grand Zionist Narrative’ which serves, explicitly as well as implicitly, as a collective conscience to the whole Israeli society.
In the preface, the author explains that school books in Israel are written for youngsters who will be drafted into joining compulsory military service at 18 years of age and carry out the Israeli policy of occupation in the Palestinian territories. The concern of the study is not to describe Israeli education as a whole but rather to focus on one specific question: how are Palestine and the Palestinians against whom these young Israelis will potentially be required to use force, portrayed in school books?
