    Fagin, This entire discussion starts repeating itself. You have never cited a quote from any Territories coordinators about Israel initiating any educational institution. When I show you that Ben Eliezer could not have been involved, you bring other names, but of course no citation (which does not exist). Your last post (I hope the very last post) on the subject, is the most revealing. You allege that I maintain that "Israelis were two dimensional villains". Here we see your motives. You are an apologists for Israel. Israel does not need apologists, it stands (and should stand) on its actions. I do not at all think Israel had any villainous motive. Why should Israel initiate any educational instituation? The people must want it. They initiated it. The most you can say is that Israel did not object to the opening of universities. That is true. But the Palestinians, Jordainians, and other Arab donors, were the ones who opened and maintained the universities. All Israel insisted on was that security considerations should have primacy. And at the beginning of the first Intifada Israel did not hesitate to cloce Bir Zeit for 4 long years. Fagin, enough with apologisticism. I have already presented to you the Jordanian story and other facts to refute all your arguments. If you can't stop such talk even when confronted with all of these, then you are not serious. I wouldn't waste my time on it anymore.
