54. I did not claim "to be unacquainted with the issues at hand".

I did not claim to be unacquainted with the issues at hand. I said my exposure was limited. I meant that it was limited compared to yours since someone said you lived in (or are from) Lebanon. My exposure is what I read and see on TV and people I talk to.

I have lurked here before joining recently. It's kind of an interesting forum but gets repetitious. My views are pro peace and pro truth. For that reason I am usually pro-Israel because that's where I usually find the most interest in peace and being truthful. I'd like to find someone from the opposite side who felt it was important to be factual and to accept the reality that the facts lead to. I kinda thought you might be that person but now I see that you're more interested in discussing my post count. I don't mind but that's not much of a payoff for me to want to spend much time here.

The Pal Christian Arab topic is complex and that makes it interesting. I've actually learned something new and changed my opinions on it since I joined this thread and part of that was from your comments. I enjoy respectful disagreement. I guarantee you I'll change my mind on any thing that you can show me I'm wrong about. But it wont be easy if you don't have the facts and a reasonable case to make. I get bored swapping comments with people I agree with.
