Morris estimates that between 2,000 and 3,000 Arabs fled their homes during this phase of the Arab initiated fighting.
Can you please read what Mr. Morris wrote?
You're talking about . . .
Please read what he wrote?
If I have the whole book I will find for you if you want to take time.
Can you read the sentence?
I'm looking at page 256 of Benny Morris book, Righteous Victims: A History of the Zionist-Arab Conflict.
He is referring to phase two now same one as you. Go ahead.
"Altogether about 200,000 to 300,000 Arabs fled their homes".
There is a big difference between 2,000 and 3,000 and 200,000 and 300,000. You could check this many times, Mr. Dershowitz. But you are really going to have to pay the $10,000. I hope you allow me to earmark it for Jenin. I would like to give it to Jenin."
Anyway, please go read the whole transcript. Trust me, it's hysterical.
Amazingly a Zionist recently told me that there was only one inaccuracy in the book that Finkelstein exposed but Finkelstein goes on to expose more within the same programme. Further, that that error (about the number fleeing) favoured the Palestinian account. Now this is a wild coincidence because Dershowitz says the same. But of course it doesn't favour the Palestinian argument to minimise the number of refugees.
I must say that it saddens me that if you want to be a successful (ie, well paid) lawyer, or even an academic you'd be better advised to emulate Dershowitz. But if it's truth you're after I'd follow Finkelstein.
