No dean, you have misunderstood ...

Reader comment on item: My Testimony before the House Subcommittee on Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations
in response to reader comment: Hate to disagree with your disagreement, but I do

Dean, it appears you have misuderstood my post. I do not view denying Israel's right to exist as reasonable. I view their criticism of the panel as being "one sided" a reasonable one. I believe that ignoring a substantial group a voice does nothing to advance our own cause, which is to justify and continue to fight for Israel's existance.

Furthermore while I do not agree with them in the least, you are fooling yourself and others if you believe that every oppoenet of Israel's right to exist is a terrorist supporter. You will find in the arab world many who would not support the state of Israel, but neither do they support terror as legitimate. Again, I dont agree with them, but dont pretend they dont exist.

Submitting....
