So from your response I can infer that Shindler in 2008 offers nothing more than a resume of former accounts already well known. Then why stress the modernity of Shindler's acount? ("in a more recent scholarly work") You think that an addendum referring to the "one scholar" who takes "my position" is not merited, despite it being in support of the interpretation of Shlaim;Iron Wall, and Kimmerling who wrote in his 2003 book;Politicide: Ariel Sharons War against the Palestinians, the following: "according to new evidence provided by Israeli researcher Dan Babli, the US never delivered the message, presumably because they were not interested in reopening the Suez canal or in providing other benefits to Soviet client states." Does Morris or Shindler have any comment on the following documented fact? The American records of the meeting between US Sec of State, Dean Rusk and Abba Eban confirm that Rusk makes no mention of any request by Eban to transmit these so called terms to Egypt and Syria.
