    "I forgot to explain the two types of `ron`. There are morons, and lessrons. Are you a more or less? - Mark Lincoln Mark, for your benefit I will take a look at today's Flushman's posts (and a previous one) directed at you and me. Normally I don't read them, but let us have some fun. You will see that the man has poor logic, poor understanding, and poor facts. Here is a collection: 3. "the palestinian polls financed by europe are designed to elicit the response europe would find acceptable.anyone who takes palestinian polls seriously is almost certainly dim. " How can a dimwit tell who is dim? Here are regular pollsters: "These are the results of the most recent poll conducted March 16-21 jointly by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah". There are polls by various Israeli papers, including rightwing Jerusalem Post. The Pal Center for Policy is run by S. Telhami, an American academic. Misleading info by Flushman. 4. "mordechai gur conducted negotiations with the palestinians: "it is not very pleasant to hear what i hear from the palestinians.they aren;t talking about the house in hebron or on givat hatamar (efrata)they are talking about the university hill in tel aviv" ? Flushman (from a Gur interview). Benny Begin wrote an article for Haaretz (2002) in which he also quoted Gur: "There was no contradiction between what the PLO's leaders were saying publicly in Arabic, and what was being said to Israeli representatives in closed-door discussions, and there was no concession on the right of return of the refugees to their actual homes. Deputy defense minister Mordechai Gur, who conducted talks with the PLO's representatives during 1994, said (Ha'aretz, January 30, 1995), "It's not very pleasant to hear what I hear from the Palestinians. They aren't talking about the house in Hebron or on Givat Hatamar [in Efrata - Z.B.B.]. They are talking about the university hill in Tel Aviv" As one can see, Gur quotes the Palestinians on the issue of the Right Of Return, not on destroying Israel. There is no secret here. They still claim this supposed right, but will give it up for some concessions, as they already admitted. Misleading Flushman, or too dumb to understand?
