    “Fidel Castro is one hell of a guy! You people would like him! Most people in Cuba like him.” (Ted Turner to a capacity crowd at Harvard Law School during a speech in 1997.)Within weeks, CNN was granted its coveted Havana Bureau, the first-ever granted by Castro to a foreign network. Bureau chief Lucia Newman (now with Al Jazeera) assured viewers, “CNN will be given total freedom to do what we want and to work without censorship.” Hard-hitting stories immediately followed. The Media Research Center reported how soon after Castro’s bestowment of a coveted Cuban “news” (i.e. propaganda) bureau, CNN...

    Two attorneys--Robert Barnes, a California trial attorney and Alan Dershowitz, a famed, highly-esteemed Harvard law professor and member of the legal profession--have come to the same conclusion: President Trump will prevail sooner or later with his immigration Executive Order. The opinion of attorney Barnes appeared in his February 4th article, prior to the 9th district decision to uphold the anti-Trump ruling of Seattle federal judge James Robart. It is apparent from his article that Mr. Barnes believed the 9th District would side with President Trump and do the right and legal thing by adhering to precedent set by the 9th...

    When asked if the issue of Israel was foreshadowing a divide within the Democratic Party, Dershowitz responded, “It does, and if they now appoint [Minnesota Rep.] Keith Ellison, who worked with [Nation of Islam leader] Farrakhan, to be chairman of the DNC you’re going to see a lot of people leave.” Dershowitz then issued a stern warning to the Democratic Party. “I’m going to tell you right here on this show and this is news, if they appoint Keith Ellison to be chairman of the Democratic Party, I will resign my membership to the Democratic Party after 50 years of...

    Stephen Bannon, whose appointment to serve as President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor has drawn controversy in recent days over allegations of antisemitism, will attend the Zionist Organization of America’s annual awards gala in New York City on Sunday. “All administration officials are welcome to come to the ZOA dinner,” ZOA National President Morton A. Klein told The Algemeiner on Tuesday. “Any Democrat is welcome, as is any Republican. If you’re a government official and you want to come to the ZOA dinner — unless you’re extremely hostile to Israel or a Jew-hater — you’re welcome to come.”...

    The Daily Mail (UK) ^ | Jul 7, 2016 | Hannah Parry
    Lawyers for billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein once claimed he co-founded the Clinton Foundation as they touted his relationship with the former president during plea negotiations. In an attempt to boost Epstein's image before he was sentenced for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008, his attorneys tried to emphasize his close ties with Bill Clinton, Fox News reports. A July 2007 letter to the South Florida State U.S. Attorney's office, written by lawyers Alan Dershowitz and Gerald Lefcourt, claimed that Epstein had been part of the original group that set up the Foundation's Clinton Global Initiative, focusing on...

    Newsmax ^ | August 5 | Todd Beamon
    Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Friday that President Barack Obama had "absolutely" no way of justifying the $400 million cash payment to Tehran in return for four American hostages — especially since a video surfaced this week in Iranian media showing an unmarked plane and a pallet of cash. "The fact that it was done secretly," the Harvard Law School professor emeritus told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "The fact that we allowed Iran to now, essentially, extort us by asking to have it done in secret and then announcing it in public — putting the United States in...

Dershowitz, a fierce defender of Israel and avowed supporter of the Democratic Party, was referring to Arab American Institute (AAI) President James Zogby, whom Sanders tapped on Monday to help draft party policy. Dershowitz, who said he’s debated Zogby on numerous occasions, explained why he is “not surprised” that the senator from Vermont contending for the Democratic...

    Reply to Slander Being defamed by a UCLA Vice Chancellor for defending the Jews. April 20, 2016 David Horowitz    Today a letter attacking me was sent to all members of the UCLA community – that would be nearly 50,000 people I think – by Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Jerry Kang. The Vice Chancellor’s letter attacked me as a “provocateur” who last year “put up hostile posters accusing two student organizations — the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) — of being murderers and terrorists.” This is a lie. Actually it...

    Haaretz ^ | April 14, 2016 | The Associated Press
    Volodymyr Groysman served as mayor of Vinnytsia where he doubled the city's budget in three years before becoming the first openly Jewish speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament. The Jewish speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Volodymyr Groysman, has been elected prime minister after a months-long political crisis. The parliament on Thursday voted 250-57 for Groysman, who was nominated by President Petro Poroshenko. The outgoing prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, resigned earlier this week after weeks of pressure for him to step down. He had survived a no-confidence vote in February. Groysman has been perceived as a conciliatory figure after the governing coalition...

    Fox News.com ^ | April 18, 2016 | Alan Dershowitz
    Bernie Sanders may not be as anti-Israel as some of his radical supporters but he can no longer be called pro-Israel. The accusations he has repeatedly leveled against Israel in the past few days—that its military response to Hamas rockets and terror tunnels has been “disproportionate”—reflects both abysmal ignorance about the conduct of the Israeli Defense Force and a pervasive bias against the nation state of the Jewish people. Sanders is right, of course, that he is not alone in accusing Israel of using disproportionate force, but he is very bad company when he cites the “countries all over the...

    Both Republican and Democratic candidates have been courting Jewish voters ahead of Tuesday’s New York primary vote, looking for an edge in competitive districts with large Jewish populations. Orthodox Jews, who make up a significant portion of New York’s Jewish population, have become an important bloc in the New York primary for both parties. […] While Orthodox Jews tend to lean more Republican than Democrat by a margin of 55% to 31%, some Hasidic sects, including the staunchly anti-Zionist Satmar, have lent their support in the past to Democratic candidates.

    One of the strangest and most intriguing “endorsements” that Sen Ted Cruz has gotten for his run for the president was from his old Harvard Law professor, Alan Dershowitz. Professor Dershowitz proclaimed Cruz to be one of the most brilliant students he ever had while on The Kelly File. That is quite a compliment considering that Dershowitz is a down the line liberal, and Cruz is running as the most conservative candidate for president since Ronald Reagan.

    ‘To restore America,” says Sen. Ted Cruz, “we must rein in the leviathan. We must revive our love story with liberty and restore America as a shining City on a Hill.” How vital it is to cut back the power and intrusiveness of the federal government! When government is big, the rich gain wealth faster than the poor, because the rich induce government to help them. Liberals say they intend to help the poor, but their policies actually widen the gap between rich and poor. Cruz is the best candidate to begin a reversal. “Never underestimate Ted Cruz,” said professor...

    Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch belonged to a student group that brought Jew-hating Palestinian terrorists to Harvard Law School every year she was a member. Lynch belonged to the Harvard Black Law Students Association (BLSA) from 1981-1984 when she was a student. During those years the radical black group brought representatives from the Palestinian Liberation Operation (PLO). The group's leader, Mohammed Kenyatta, called for the "liberation of Palestine" and expressed support for the terrorist organization. The BLSA defended bringing the terrorists in a letter to the editor of the Harvard student newspaper, The Harvard Crimson. Jewish student organizations protested the...

    International law experts are blasting Doctors Without Borders for forcibly removing civilian patients from the aid group’s Kunduz, Afghanistan, hospital and replacing them with wounded Taliban fighters when the city fell to the rebel control in late September. Alan Dershowitz, an acclaimed Harvard constitutional lawyer and authority in international law, said that he was not surprised that the group, known as Medecins Sans Frontieres, favored Taliban fighters over civilian patients, telling The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview that he regards Doctors Without Borders as “Doctors Without Morals.” Dershowitz charged the group with having a long history of anti-Western...

    Long-time Democrat, Israel defender and famed law professor Alan Dershowitz told a synagogue audience on Saturday night that he was “furious” with President Obama over the Iran nuclear deal. Speaking at Manhattan’s illustrious Park East Synagogue on the Upper East Side to a crowd gathering for the pre-high-holiday Selichot prayer service, Dershowitz implied he had been betrayed by the president he had formerly championed. He recounted being invited to the Oval Office before Obama’s reelection in 2012, where the president had committed to being vigilant on the Iranian nuclear issue. Obama has now crossed many of his own red lines,...
