Dershowitz is upset by Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, Karl Marx and Gilad Atzmon's failure to promote 'Jewish Values.' The question that comes to mind is what exactly can we learn about Jewish values from this Harvard 'law scholar'?
Dershowitz at his best moment. In his desperate attempt to defame Bernie Sanders, the Harvard professor has identified the enemy within: "the worst people in terms of not promoting Jewish values." Dershowitz was referring to Norman Finkelstein, Karl Marx, Noam Chomsky and Gilad Atzmon. I guess that most people would regard the company above as... Read More
Dershowitz is working hard these days. He understandably desperate to clear his name. This video is a short deconstruction of Dershowitz' recent appearance on Israeli TV.
Noam Chomsky wrote of Dershowitz that he is a “remarkable liar” and “slanderer.” These problematic traits Chomsky noted of the former Harvard professor have proved useful. I might not have seen Dershowitz’ most recent recycled rant had he not mentioned my name and, as always, lied about me. In his article, Dershowitz claims that I... Read More
Who has helped create a war-addicted America?
I recently was asked to speak at an online conference entitled Deep Truth: Encountering Deep State Lies. My panel addressed Understanding Zionism: Deconstructing the Power Paradigm and my own topic was How Jewish Power Sustains the Israel Narrative. Working on my presentation, I was forced to confront the evolution of my own views on both... Read More
Exposing Jewish power in America has real consequences
Two weeks ago, I wrote for Unz.com an article entitled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” It sought to make several points concerning the consequences of Jewish political power vis-à-vis some aspects of U.S. foreign policy. It noted that some individual American Jews and organizations with close ties to Israel, whom I named and identified,... Read More
Everyone's doing it
Those of us who voted for Donald Trump in hopes that he would turn out to be the peace candidate are facing disappointment. He has increased the already bloated military budget by $54 billion and has appointed an outspokenly anti-Russian and anti-Iranian active duty general as his National Security Advisor. A retired general with pretty... Read More
Quislings in Congress and the Media need to decide which comes first
I am reluctant to write about the “Israel problem” at the heart of U.S. foreign policy two weeks in a row but it seems that the story just will not go away as the usual suspects pile on the Barack Obama Administration over its alleged betrayal of America’s “best and greatest friend and ally in...

The Professor of Torture
Alan Dershowitz is a crafty debater, a capable attorney and a ferocious defender of Israel. He is also a Harvard professor and a former member of OJ Simpson's legal defense called the Dream Team. An article by Dershowitz appeared on op-ed page of the Wall Street Journal on Novemeber 7, 2007, titled "Democrats and Waterboarding".... Read More
Defender of the Lash & the Cattle Prod
This is the opening passage of Alan Dershowitz's attack on the Geneva Conventions. It sets the tone for a polemic that savages our continued commitment to the humane treatment of prisoners and endorses "varying forms of rough interrogation". The essay, "The Rules of War Enable Terror", employs the Harvard professor's rhetorical skills to undermine the... Read More
Will Lawrence Summers Take Action?
Let's start with a passage from Alan Dershowitz's latest book, The Case for Israel, now slithering into the upper tier of Amazon's sales charts. On page 213 we meet Dershowitz, occupant of the Felix Frankfurter chair at Harvard Law School, happily walloping a French prof called Faurisson, charged by the FF prof from Harvard U... Read More
Open the November 5 edition of Newsweek and here's Jonathan Alter, munching coyly on the week's hot topic, namely the propriety of the FBI torturing obdurate September 11 suspects in the Bureau's custody here in the United States. Alter says no to cattleprods, but continues the sentence with the observation that something is needed to... Read More
Most Americans don't know and probably don't want to hear about it, but the fact is that somewhere between the box cutters of Sept. 11 and the anthrax-in-the-envelopes of the last several weeks, civil liberties are slowly beginning to vanish. Columnist Nat Hentoff, a lifelong civil libertarian, may exaggerate when he writes, as he does... Read More
