Criticism of Zionism and the integral nationalism it derives from is legitimate because since ancient times Jews have been attacked by many other peoples. While this form of nationalism can go too far at times it is the only proven method of defending Jews from genocide and illiberal forces. Many countries including our own have integral nationalistic factions which also aim to protect the basis of national life. No people more than the Jews have a right to defend themselves from evil doers. Thus I deem this book and this course not well intentioned but part of a scheme to destroy Jews and what defends them best. Jews need to be vigilant and that many of them are is to their credit not their blame.
