    On Tuesday's broadcast of the Fox Business Network's "The Intelligence Report," Harvard Law Professor Emeritus, attorney, and author Alan Dershowitz argued Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) "would be great for the Republicans," if elected DNC Chair and was a "part of" Louis Farrakhan's anti-Semitism "for years." Dershowitz said picking Ellison would be "about the dumbest thing, among many dumb things, the Democrats have done. After losing white, middle class, working-class people in the Midwest, you're going to pick somebody who for nine years was associated with a hate America, anti-American, anti-Western person? It's just nuts, and they’re going to lose a...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” attorney and author Alan Dershowitz criticized President Barack Obama for not calling out Black Lives matter and Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) for their bigotry, and “we on the liberal side have to call out the bigotry on the left as strongly as people on the right have to call the bigotry of the far right.” Dershowitz said, “President Obama hasn’t done enough. He hasn’t done enough in calling out Black Lives Matter when they included an argument about genocide, calling Israel a genocidal country. He hasn’t done enough on Keith Ellison, who for years...

Harry Reid's speech on the Senate floor Tuesday where he lambasted Donald Trump for his appointment of Steve Bannon to be one of his chief advisors. On MSNBC, Alan Dershowitz shared he receives anti-Semitic responses from "hard-left" students when he delivers speeches at colleges. He invited Reid to go to college campuses and witness how popular anti-Semitism is from the left. Dershowitz talked about "unsafe spaces" for Christians and Jews who support Israel. "What was seen in this country was a very dangerous development on both sides," Dershowitz explained in an interview...

    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.

    Alan Dershowitz, a staunch Democrat and emeritus law professor at Harvard University, is hitting back against the smears claiming White House appointee Steve Bannon is anti-Semitic, arguing it is “not legitimate to call somebody an anti-Semite because you might disagree with their policies.” Speaking in an interview with this reporter, Dershowitz stated: I think we have to be very careful before we accuse any particular individual of being an anti-Semite. The evidence certainly suggests that Mr. Bannon has very good relationships with individual Jews. My former researcher, Joel Pollak, is an Orthodox Jew who takes off the Jewish holidays, who...

    Clinton-supporting trial lawyer Alan Dershowitz hung up on radio host Mark Simone Friday after Simone confronted Dershowitz with a Clinton for-profit college scandal. Dershowitz spoke about Donald “Trump’s instability” and said that “We’re also buying a guy who engaged in massive fraud with Trump University.” New York radio host Simone then turned the tables to focus on the Clintons’ Laureate University scandal. Simone said that Bill Clinton received $18 million to serve as chancellor of the for-profit college and Hillary Clinton’s State Department awarded them $50 million in U.S. government grants.http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/11/04/alan-dershowitz-goes-berserk-over-clinton-college-scandal-hangs-up-on-mark-simone/

    Hard left activists are trying to exclude Jews who do not renounce Israel from "progressive" organizations. Last year, Rabbi Susan Talve, a longtime activist on race issues in the St. Louis area was told that her advocacy for Israel was incompatible with the objectives of Black Lives Matter: "Solidarity from Ferguson to Palestine has become a central tenet of the movement" she was informed, because "Israeli and U.S. state oppression are deeply interconnected." Similarly, a student who attended a Black Lives Matter rally at Northwestern University last year was told "you support Israel, so you cannot also support us." Recently,...

Dershowitz also sounded off about the decision by Kaine and other prominent democrats to support the international nuclear deal with Iran.

For the police detectives who sifted through the garbage outside and kept records of visitors, it was the lair of a troubling target. Epstein, one of the most mysterious of the country's mega-rich, was known as much for his secrecy as for his love of fine things: magnificent homes, private jets, beautiful women, friendships with the world's elite. But at Palm Beach police headquarters, he was becoming known for something else: the regular arrival of teenage girls...

    A senior Obama administration official recently told journalist Jeffrey Goldberg that Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a “chickenshit.” A second senior official also reportedly called Netanyahu a “coward” on the issue of Iran’s nuclear threat. If these reports are accurate, did the Obama administration — indeed perhaps President Obama himself — authorize the officials to issue these highly provocative statements? The White House has tried to distance itself from the remarks, but it seems unlikely that two senior administration officials would use such explosive words without White House approval. Goldberg says that this is the way American and Israeli...

At home, in the United Kingdom (UK) Muslim community, and on campus, anti-Jewish and anti-Israel agitation was constant. Kasim’s own father harbored anti-Semitic sentiments. He considered Hitler a hero, and felt that his only failing was that he did not kill enough Jews. Growing up in the UK, to Pakistani-Muslim parents, Kasim was exposed to materials and opinions that were at best, condemning Israel for all the evils in the Middle East, and painting Jews as usurpers and murderers. More extreme elements...

    Are you okay, Marc? I have a hankie you can use to wipe away that rolling teardrop that Alan Dershowitz possibly caused during your heated debate on Israel and Gaza during CNN Tonight on Monday. The weird thing is that Marc Lamont Hill was actually crying over Israel (GASP!) defending itself against both rocket attacks and secret tunnels built from Gaza into Israel for the purpose of killing and kidnapping. A video was posted by Soopermexican showing Hill's tear of absurdly misplaced compassion (or was it frustration from arguiing with Dershowitz?) rolling down his cheek.
  • [Harvard law professor] Dershowitz Says D’Souza Case ‘Smacks of Selective Prosecution’

    Mr. Dershowitz thinks the federal campaign fraud charges against the conservative filmmaker and author are an example of “selective prosecution.” Weighing in on the case Friday in an interview with Law Blog, Mr. Dershowitz was withering in his opinion of the Manhattan U.S. attorney office’s prosecution of Mr. D’Souza, who pleaded not guilty last week to making illegal campaign contributions to a Republican U.S. Senate candidate in 2012. “The idea of charging him with a felony for this doesn’t sound like a proper exercise of prosecutorial discretion,” Mr. Dershowitz said. “I can’t help but think that [D'Souza's] politics have something...

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said Sunday that the Obama administration was naive and had possibly made a "cataclysmic error of gigantic proportions" in its deal to ease sanctions on Iran in exchange for an opening up of the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. "I think it could turn out to be a cataclysmic error of gigantic proportions," Dershowitz said of the deal, which he described as "naive." "It could also turn out to be successful, to be the beginning of a negotiated resolution," Dershowitz told Newsmax on Sunday. "But I think the likelihood of it being the former is considerably...

    Angela Corey, the special prosecutor who struck out going after George Zimmerman, has not taken defeat well. At Red State, streiff catalogues her outrageous behavior in an article that should be read in its entirety: I think everyone can now agree on one thing, Angela Corey was possibly the worst possible choice for a high profile prosecution. She has a sense of entitlement that is so typical of small people promoted to jobs that are well above their level of competency but who lack the self-awareness to recognize what everyone else knows. (You need look no further than her bizarre...

    Outrage is growing over the jaw-dropping statement by Florida state prosecutor Angela Corey that George Zimmerman, acquitted of murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin, is still a "murderer." Renowned civil-rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that Zimmerman has reason to launch a defamation of character case against Corey.

    "You know, this is a case that should never have been brought in the first place, certainly not as a second degree murder prosecution," Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz told CNN's "State of the Union With Candy Crowley" on Sunday. Dershowitz said George Zimmerman was put on trial because "there was political pressure on the governor, and he appointed somebody (special prosecutor Angela Corey) who had the worst reputation in Florida for overcharging. And she did exactly what she was supposed to do; she overcharged. She charged second-degree murder in a case where there was reasonable doubt written all over...

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz says the prosecutors in the George Zimmerman murder trial should be charged with "prosecutorial misconduct" for suggesting the defendant planned the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. "That is something no prosecutor should be allowed to get away with … to make up a story from whole cloth," Dershowitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "These prosecutors should be disbarred. They have acted absolutely irresponsibly in an utterly un-American fashion."

    The verdict is in from Alan Dershowitz: if the renowned Harvard Law professor were on the jury hearing the George Zimmerman murder trial, he would find the defendant not guilty. "I would say there's reasonable doubt. I would say nobody knows who started the initial fight," Dershowitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "Remember, it's monumentally irrelevant who's morally guilty here." Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman, a 29-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer for his community, says he shot Martin, 17,...

    Famed Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz ranks Sen. Ted Cruz among the school’s smartest students, adding that the Canada-born Texan can run for president in 2016. Cruz was a “terrific student,” Dershowitz told The Daily Caller. “He was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn’t strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian.” “He had brilliant insights and he was clearly among the top students, as revealed by his class responses,” Dershowitz added. Dershowitz also gave a high estimate of Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren — who has decidedly different political...

    Prof. Alan Dershowitz, appearing at the Jerusalem Post Conference in New York this week, spoke about his plan to restart the peace talks. Dershowitz, who has not official position in Israel, spoke to PA President Mahmoud Abbas and suggested a version of the Allon Plan of 1970. His suggestion for a "tripartite settlement freeze" was panned by Israel's Minister of International Affairs, Yuval Steinitz, as well as by former National Security Advisor to PM Netanyahu, Dr. Uzi Arad, who opposed "ulilateral concessions." AFSI's newly elected Chairman, Attorney Mark Langfan, sent an open letter to Prof. Dershowitz for posting in the...
