Reader comment on item: Why Newt Gingrich Was Right about Palestinian History
in response to reader comment: Laying out an argument

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Dec 24, 2011 at 20:38

Mr Riaz once again proves he is unable to understand what he reads:

GIK wrote: "..Any reasonably minded person should be able to figure it out.."

in response to questions that Mr Riaz wrote to another blogger:

"What is this evidence - what is it for? What are you aiming at. What are you claiming this evidence shows?"

He then continues in his response:

"...There is no point giving out odd bits of history laced with your opinion attached to claim all is historical.If you were THAT reasonable - you would have given an answer rather than useless comments."

Besides being yet another useless value judgement from a person who obviously wishes to re-write history - if Mr Riaz he had been following the discussions - he would realise GIK presented no historical arguments relating to the fact that the Jews have been associated with Jerusalem for 3000 years.

GIK's assertion was simply that a reasonably minded person would easily gather the intent of Sara presenting a large number of indisputable historical facts as an answer to Mr Riaz's questions.
