Re Ron: the "no" to Israel and the refugee question

in response to reader comment: Interpretation too Benign?

Ron, I would not conclude that the answer to the question "do you deny Israel the right to exist?" equals 100%-answer to the question "do you accept Israel?". If I had to conduct a poll I would ask the refugee question "would you accomodate 1 million palestinian refugees in case Israel disappeared in 2050 ?". I would expect that there are more egyptians and saudi-arabians who refuse the refugees than those who refuse Israel.
