"ALL of (Vatican )City's actual citizens are Catholic as are all the places of worship."


"The reasons for the mass immigration of pan Arab Jews to Israel, are myriad and extremely complex. Suffice it to say that you seem to be saying that the only reason for that migration is that the Jews were forced out of Egypt, or Jordan or Iraq and that they had no place to go. I know that they were recruited by Israel and that there were other factors. Rather than get into that. I prefer to let your challenge stand, unquestioned. "

Agreed, but so are the reasons that SOME of the Arab Muslims left Israel- A far larger percentage of Arab Muslims stayed in Israel than the number of Arab Jews who remained in Arab nations

"I don't mind discussing the issue as a favor to you. But it has to be with the understanding that I am not trying to change your mind and I am not trying to change yours and that we both know where we stand already."

I do not expect to change other's minds- most of those who support BDS do not seem willing to discuss reality, and many seem willing to apply their "fairness" standards to ONLY one side of the issue. But when I see a lie- ( statement contrary to reality, known to be false) presented, I will point it out.
