[b-hebrew] OT: a link about Modern Hebrew

Dear Vadim,

Of course I understand the doctrinal tradition. I hear a similar argument
from SOME Orthodox Jewish students and audiences: why should we care what
gentile anti-semites think about OUR Tanakh? I guess I just expected most of
the people who consider themselves to be scholars, scientists, to be beyond
such prejudices. But why should they?
