NY Times’ Kristof: AIPAC and NRA Are Like Pigs

6 Shevat 5773 – January 17, 2013
"The settlements erode hope ... of a peace agreement in the future."

‘Judeophobia’ Asks: Why Do They Hate Jews?

6 Tevet 5773 – December 19, 2012
The film carefully and concisely packs into 81 minutes the birth, metamorphosis and metastasization of Jew-hatred.

MTA Sneaks In Free Speech Restrictions, Bypassing Court Ruling Favoring Anti-Jihad...

14 Tishri 5773 – September 30, 2012
These new regulations were announced on Thursday, just three days after the American Freedom Defense Initiative ads were put up with court approval.

Alan Dershowitz: No “Buyer’s Remorse” For Voting For Obama

11 Av 5772 – July 29, 2012
Republicans are trying to woo away Jews who voted for Barack Obama in 2008, hoping they have experienced "buyer's remorse." I, for one, have experienced no such remorse. I have gotten from President Obama pretty much what I expected when I voted for him.

Alan Dershowitz: National Jewish Democratic Council Doesn’t Speak for Me on...

19 Tammuz 5772 – July 9, 2012
I am a Democrat and do not agree with many of Sheldon Adelson's political views, but I think it's outrageous for the National Jewish Democratic Council to level unfounded allegations against Adelson. I don't know who Harris purports to speak for as President of the National Jewish Democratic Council, but his partisan gamesmanship is an embarrassment to many Jewish Democrats.

Alan Dershowitz: Iran Declares War Against the Jewish People

8 Tammuz 5772 – June 28, 2012
In a speech delivered in Tehran, Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi accused the Jewish people of spreading illegal drugs around the world, killing Black babies, starting the Bolshevik Revolution and causing many of the world's other ills.

Alan Dershowitz: Alice Walker’s Bigotry

1 Tammuz 5772 – June 20, 2012
There is an appropriate response to Walker's bigotry. The publisher who sought to publish Walker's book in Hebrew should simply go ahead and do it—without her permission and over her objection. Walker could then sue for copyright infringement, and the issue would be squarely posed: can copyright laws, which are designed to encourage the promotion of literature, be used to censor writings and prevent certain people from accessing it, based upon the language they read.

Alan Dershowitz: J Street Undercuts Obama Policy on Iran

28 Sivan 5772 – June 17, 2012
President Obama recently invited me to the Oval Office for a discussion about Iran. The President reiterated to me in private what he had previously said in public: namely, that he would not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons; that containment of a nuclear Iran was not an option; that sanctions and diplomatic pressures would be applied and increased first; but that, as a last recourse, the military option would not be taken off the table.

Dershowitz: Zimmerman Prosecutor’s Conduct Entirely Unprofessional

16 Sivan 5772 – June 6, 2012
Even if Angela Corey's actions were debatable, which I believe they were not, I certainly have the right, as a professor who has taught and practiced criminal law nearly 50 years, to express a contrary view. The idea that a prosecutor would threaten to sue someone who disagrees with her for libel and slander, to sue to university for which he works, and to try to get him disbarred, is the epitome of unprofessionalism.

Alan Dershowitz: Edwards’ Jury Couldn’t Decide and For Good Reason

12 Sivan 5772 – June 1, 2012
This entire farce of a trial is part of a larger problem that infects not only America but other Western countries as well: the criminalization of policy differences and of personal sin.

Alan Dershowitz: Suppressing Ugly Truth for Beautiful Art

10 Iyyar 5772 – May 2, 2012
Perhaps an artist should be judged without regard to his/her political affiliations or actions, but the Metropolitan Museum's exhibit on the collection of Gertrude Stein and her family purports to present the story of the collection and of Gertrude's life in France. It ends with a misleading description of her activities during the war years, suppressing the fact that she collaborated with Nazism during the German occupation of France.

Alan Dershowitz: The Case Against the Left and Right One-State Solution

28 Adar 5772 – March 22, 2012
The one-state solution that the extreme left and extreme right seek is completely different: the left wants yet another Arab state in place of Israel; the right wants a Jewish state that encompasses what is now the West Bank, in place of any Palestinian state. Both are prescriptions for undemocratic disasters and for the ultimate delegitimation of Israel as the democratic nation-state of the Jewish people.

Alan Dershowitz: Why Deterrence Won’t Work Against Iran

27 Adar 5772 – March 21, 2012
It would appear to be ironic that when it comes to Iran, so-called "doves" favor a mutually assured destruction policy that threatens the deaths of millions over a preventive policy that targets military nuclear facilities. But it is not at all ironic, since such doves would be against actually carrying out the threat that is central to any credible policy of deterrence. For them, deterrence is a bluff—a hollow threat and the Iranians would see right through it.

Alan Dershowitz: President Obama Turns a Corner on Iran

10 Adar 5772 – March 4, 2012
For those who have claimed that Obama is anti-Israel and/or weak on Iran, his forceful statements in a recent interview should make them reconsider. I was not surprised by President Obama's strong words, because he said similar things to me in private conversation. And I, for one, am satisfied with the President's words. Now I want to hear them repeated by Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, by Joint Chief of Staff Martin Dempsey and by others in the Obama Administration.

Alan Dershowitz: Media Matters Hurts Obama

5 Adar 5772 – February 28, 2012
Recent comments by Media Matters' Senior Foreign Policy Fellow MJ Rosenberg are the most recent incarnation of the age-old accusation against Jews of disloyalty to their own country. It finds its roots in the Biblical villains Pharaoh and Hamen who accused the Jews of Egypt and Persia of disloyalty. It was a central tenet of Nazism, Stalinism and other anti-Semitic regimes. Today, it is the mantra of David Duke, Patrick Buchanan, Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Jew haters of every race, religion and national origin.

Alan Dershowitz: Friends Seminary Plays Bait and Switch on Anti-Semitism

3 Adar 5772 – February 26, 2012
The Friends Seminary of New York was unwilling to cancel the scheduled appearance of Gilad Atzmon, even after learning that he was a virulent anti-Semite who questions the Holocaust but believes that it may be true that Jews kill Christians to use their blood for religious purposes. But they have canceled my appearance because they didn't like the tone of a private letter that I wrote to them that was critical of the Headmaster's failure to comply with his promises.

Alan Dershowitz: Who are America’s Reliable Allies?

24 Shevat 5772 – February 17, 2012
It's time for the realists to acknowledge that Israel not only has a moral and ideological claim to American support, but it also has a claim base on realpolitik.

Give ‘Em Heck, Prof. Dershowitz!

21 Shevat 5772 – February 14, 2012
It's been a while since we've read this kind of foaming-at-the-mouth attack on Prof. Alan Dershowitz. He must be doing something right.

ACLU Needs To Clarify Stance On Censoring Israeli Speakers

26 Adar I 5771 – March 2, 2011
The international campaign to prevent speakers from delivering pro-Israel talks at universities has been assisted by leaders of the American Civil Liberties Union - an organization that is supposed to protect freedom of speech for all. The method used to silence these speakers and preclude their audiences from hearing their message is exemplified by a now infamous event at the University of California at Irvine.

Why J Street Attacked Sarah Palin

22 Shevat 5771 – January 26, 2011
Shortly after Sarah Palin provoked a barrage of criticism for her use of the term "blood libel," a Democratic congressman named Steve Cohen compared Republican statements about the Obama health care reform to "the big lie" told by Joseph Goebbels, saying it's "like [a] blood libel. The same kind of thing."
