    I can see how you operate. You previously made the claim about Beilin that he left Labor "because he does not care for the mizrahim". When I tell you in #93 the well known facts about Beilin's departure from Labor, you say: "His face and body language spoke volumes. i have no doubt that he has an antipathy for the mizrahim." So now you rely only on body language and impressions. I am very impressed by your acute perceptions But what about the facts? It is perfectly well known why Beilin left Labor. He was pushed out! Facts are facts, Fagin. First you have to recognize them. Then you can interpret them. Interpretation contrary to known facts is worthless. P.S. I have nothing against Sarid. I like him too as an honest man. I thought you made the mistake of confusing Beilin with Sarid because Sarid fought endlessly with Shas while both were in Barak's government, and helped undermine that government. My explanation for the fight is that Sarid lacks political wisdom. (But he is still an honest man.) I thought you might have interpreted the fight as anti-Mizrahim attitude. So right now I end up with the only explanation for your Beilin mistake as ignorance of well known facts.
