Here is an example of the kind of evidence that Brenner ignores because it undermines his distorted and unproven thesis:
This is a more nuanced view of what happened when Zionists negotiated with the Nazis in the 1930s in an attempt to save as many Jewish lives as possible. The context was excruciating. Note that the author uses the word "agreement" rather than the word "collaboration," because his years of research (rather than just publishing a group of documents) showed that this was a more accurate word for describing what actually happened:
When I lived in Israel his daughter, Dola Whitman (who was in her 70s at the time) came to my class to speak. I'll never froget it. Ben Yehuda is for me an icon of chutzpah (imagine calling your dog in the Loyshen haKoydesh), vision (working up to 22 hours a day) and a living embodiment of N'vua (prophecy the revival of a people).איך הדקדוק שלך?
