Dershowitz Makes an Absurd Statement

Xymphora exposes an obvious lie from Alan Dershowitz when he claims it is absurd to contend that many Al Qaueda leaders are motivated by Israel's presence in Jerusalem and the plight of the Palestinians.

"A professor at Harvard Law School, Alan Dershowitz, whom the authors call an 'apologist' for Israel, said he found much of the paper to be 'trash.' ... An intelligent member of Hamas would not have made these mistakes.'

Those mistakes for Mr. Dershowitz include, for example, the assertion that 'There is no question, for example, that many Al Qaeda leaders, including bin Laden, are motivated by Israel's presence in Jerusalem and the plight of the Palestinians,' which Mr. Dershowitz says 'is just absurd.'"

Xymphora then provides a list of Al Qaeda statements, many from Bin Laden himself, railing against Israel and its treatment of the Palestinians.

So, the only thing that is absurd is Deshowitz's statement. Put this right next to OJ was innocent.

One of the best parts of Finkelstein's latest work is where he stands up, as in the middle of a surge of lemmings, and asks "Just why is it that a wealthy ambulance chaser whose speciality is getting off super-wealthy wife-beaters turned murderer has this never questioned nor explainmed reputation as a civil libertarian?" What is it Alan did that he's some kind of scary civil libertarian anyway, besides defending the least meaningful forms of speech freedom in a Penthouse column for which he is compensated handsomely?

News of the Depressing: Nat Portman seemed like an intelligent girl, yet not only is her degree in Psychology, she is credited as a research assisstant in Dersch's recently destroyed plagiarism The Case for Israel.
