    "a case they would have pursued it" PSM Not correct. The FBI wanted to pursue it. They were prevented from doing so. One of the plaintiffs [Franklin] had already agreed with prosecutors to plead guilty to the three conspiracy counts before the case was dropped for technical reasons; onerous burden of proof, proof of intent etc. That and fears about natinal security issues, were the trial to proceed. Highly unlikely the FBI would not have done their homework more thoroughly this time. Palestinian Ghandi: "It was going on at the same time as the intifida not as you claimed" PSM Wrong Peter. "***PRIOR to the intifada***, Awad published papers and lectured on nonviolence as a technique for resisting the Israeli occupation. He wrote that nonviolence could be used as a means of resistance. The Centre ALSO sponsored a number of nonviolent actions during the early months on the first intifada. Among the tactics employed was the planting of olive trees on proposed settlements, asking people not to pay taxes and encouraging people to eat and drink Palestinian products. In the Middle East he is called the Arab Gandhi because he was teaching the power of nonviolence similar to Mahatma Gandhi in India during the British Raj." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mubarak_Awad#cite_note-2 Planting olive trees and not paying taxes one minute, a suicide bomber the next? The Palestinian 'Ghandi'. All you can do is obfuscate. It's as if anyone who tells the truth about a NON VIOLENT Palestinian opponent induces paranoid robotic defence mechanisms in certain people. Here is some more of your nonsense: "he refused Israeli citizenship". Yes, in 1967 along with most of Arab population of Jerusalem. He declined Israeli citizenship. He lived in East Jerusalem which Israel has still not officially annexed. He retained his Jordanian citizenship. If a Jew can legally return to Zion after 2000 years can not a native non Jew return to his own homeland and his fathers birthplace after a few years absence. Even a peaceful one? [tax evasion and olive trees not withstanding]
