A friend of mine has stated that my essay on the so-called “Palestinians” was full of “hyperbole.”

Well, ok. She’s a well educated woman so I decided to take another look.

I don’t see it. Not even one word.  But that’s the thing:  when your opponent can’t find a logical flaw in your reasoning, or if they KNOW internally that what you are saying is the truth, they have to resort to another attack. Now, if she had offered a link – something to prove  I was wrong, that would be one thing. That would be legitimate. But an accusation of “hyperbole”?  Sorry, but that’s mishigas .
