You are referring to one of the things that makes normal debate impossible. You claim I said these two things: "Arafat is dead for sure, I know and Israel knows" and "ALL of the protesters were imported from Syria".
I invite you to ...[text shortened]... s is all about, then I don't know what to say anymore ........
In response to my post:'Any ideas on why Israel released a news story that Arafat had died, when in fact he's still alive and kicking. Well maybe not kicking, but he is still alive. '
Ivanhoe posted:' Because Arafat is indeed dead. They, the Palestinian authorities, do not want to make it official though. '
1) You state that Arafat is 'indeed dead'.
2) This to me sounds like a statement of fact, especially with the usage of 'indeed'. Ie: 'You know' that he is dead.
3) Israel were the only other people who were saying that Arafat was dead at the time. Your statement that Arafat is 'indeed dead' implies that you have access to the same facts as the israelis.
Adding 1 + 2 + 3 and paraphrasing = "Arafat is dead for sure, I know and Israel knows"
Ivanhoe:'all these protesters were imported from Syria for the occasion'
In the interests of fairness, your entire completely generalising and bigoted statement was 'The majority of all these protesters were imported from Syria for the occasion. They were all Hezbollah supporters, these bigoted Islamists, also known as "Les Barbes"' Unfortunately, as the first part of your statement doesn't make any sense, I had to try to make sense of it. In my previous post in this thread, I was referring to your tone when u make posts like this. Like, how can any sane debater say this:'They were all Hezbollah supporters' unless they had personally been at the demonstration and asked the demonstrators.
Your invite has been answered. Unfortunately, even though u love to do it, you can not place blame anywhere near 2Bit for this. Your statement is exactly why I and 2Bit stated it was. There is no twisting of facts, or misrepresentation.
Darfius:'I'll even let people call Catholics Christians if it will end this before it begins.'
Seems to me that you don't believe that catholics are christians. Ivanhoe has stated numerous times that he is a catholic and a christian. Through Darfius' statement, he is saying that Ivanhoe (and all other catholics) have to choose to be either catholic or christian, but not both. Am I wrong?
By the way, Darfius, can u please explain how a imaginary user name on an internet chess site can be slandered. Also, if you really feel the need, then report me to the administrators. I've just had another look at the TOS, and I have abided them to the letter.
[EDIT] Hey, no fair. 2Bit beat me to it. Twice.
