    1. Hamas now acceps Israel in the 1967 line on a temporary basis. What will come next? Meshal says time will tell. Can you tell? 2. "Unchanged PLO charter"? It was changed in 1996 by appending to it a letter to Clinton deleting all anti-Israel sentences. 3. Saudi Arabia rejects Israel unconditionally? Have you heard of the Saudi Peace Plan? 4. The Jewish religion is illegal in any Sharia countries? Have you heard the term Dhimmi? I am not saying this is great, but your statement is false. 5. Successive partitioning of "Ottoman Palestine"? Palestine was divided among a number of Ottoman Sanjaks. If you mean "Mandatory Palestine", the National Home never included the East of Jordan since the Mandate came into effect in September 1923. But even according to your calculation, the Jews in 1947 got 55% of the West of the Jordan, which itself was 23% of British Palestine, for a total of 12.65%, not 11%. (I object to flawed supposedly "precise" figures.) 6. Abdullah I was an Iraqi? No, his family ruled the Hijaz, on the West Coast of Arabia. 7. The Brits gave Trans-Jordan to Abdullah`s tribe? No, at most to his family. The population of Trans-Jordan was indigenous. 8. The Brits "the other Arabs of the region" by giving Abdullah the Trans-Jordan? No, the claim is they screwed the Hashemites by giving Syria to the French. 9. The Brits opposed the UN Partition? Then why did they abstain on the vote instead of voting "no"? 10. The Brits recognized Jordan`s annexation of Jerusalem? No, they did not. The Brits wanted Jerusalem to be an international city. Dr. Burned, how did you get this name? Did you burn all the books at home or only history books?
