SDHD: "While we appreciate your offer to negotiate on "THIS" basis,the issues are very complex and we think we can improve upon your basis." JB: "Saudis: OK. Then show us your "Israeli Plan" so we can all have a good laugh at it." Except, the Saudis said, "take it or leave it." You said, offers to negotiate are ALWAYS take it or leave it offers. This fallacy of yours clearly demonstrates a severe incapacity to grasp simple day-to-day realities. Beyond your usual word-game idiocy, and pertaining to the question of "where's the Israeli offer," you do understand that the Saudis told Arafat to accept the Clinton parameters, right? You also understand that Olmert made an offer to the PA, right? Will you EVER understand that, universally, offers to negotiate are not exclusively take-it-or-leave-it offers? Or are you too much of a self-indulgent bonehead to crack that ignorant mind of yours open a tad more?
