Syria loves Shlomo Sand

A symposium was held yesterday at the Lecture Hall of the al-Assad National Library in Damascus, as reported by Syrian's official TV network website.

The subject? "The Invention of the Jewish people."

Yes, the entire symposium was dedicated to the absurd ramblings of Shlomo Sand.

The sponsors of the meeting was the "Syrian Arab Popular Committee to support the Palestinian people and resistance to the Zionist project."

I guess the only people who take Sand seriously are School of Oriental and African Studies in London - and the Syrian government.
