    Default "That said, ..."



    An acquaintance of mine, a Syrian living in Beirut, wrote me in frustration about this last night. "We get very little interest from the international press compared to the Palestinians. What should we do to get more attention?" My advice is to get killed by Jews. Always works. That said, what do pro-Israel people want?

    Does that said mean
    however?

    *Not a native speaker*

    I always think that said=Having said that, meaning there will be a change in the view. similar to However.

    Having said that, though, what do pro-Israel people want?

    Yes.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
