I know this is years afterwards, but your query is as valid today as it was in 2003. I would also like to have seen Karsh refute the big picture as reported by Morris in his two books on the "problem2". Karsh is a cherry picker. He takes one of two points where Morris is not aware of the full picture (e.g. the Ben-Gurion letter to his son) and his supporters then enter the mantra that Morris has been thoroughly refuted, which soon becomes ALL of Morris' work is trash.

Karsh has NEVER been able to refute that the bulk of the direct actions that led to the Palestinian Arabs deciding to flee, as referenced in British and Israeli archives - note: 'direct' - were actions perpetrated by the Haganah and the Zionist terrorist militia groups. Karsh was never able to show that Morris, Chilers, Khalidi and others used false evidence nor made unsound conclusions as to these causes.

Obfuscation is the name if this game, and always has been.
