I suggest people read JewishHistory, Jewish religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years by Israel Shahak for a relatively concise view that explains the rather large element of truth in the CR’s statements. Shahak explained how the tensions between what he called “classical Judaism” and the European Enlightenment have given rise to not only the deception and hypocrisy of political Zionism but the overtly racist chosen-ness of extreme orthodox settlers.
I see several comments here that touch also on the European Gentile hypocrisy of recognizing the universal rights of individual human beings regardless of race, religion or language, while continuing to tolerate anti-Semitism. Jewish nationalism was inevitable under such conditions. European cultural arrogance, reinforced by not so ancient texts, suppressed or mistranslated to hide them from Enlightenment political authorities, were used to justify special rights for Jews versus Gentiles and led to a colonial/imperial project that naturally focused on the ancestral home and unjust treatment of the people who lived there.
Shahak believed strongly that the problems can not be corrected until Jewish religious authorities come clean about the ancient texts and discuss them openly, the ugliness along with the noble.
